April Fishing Report, Fantastic. Tarpon have begun the migration into the Keys throughout march and now during April and through June they will continue to be in Keys waters in big numbers. April has brought us many big fish and the bite has been quite good, using live bait or artificials. I have been doing trips ranging from 4 hour bait trips to full day fly and bait trips as well as great night fishing. The Tarpon have been eating flies quite well and using live bait has been getting numerous hook ups per trip. Sometimes fighting as many as 10 tarpon in a half day trip, these fish have been keeping my anglers extremely tired.
Sharks have been on heavy prowl lately as well, not uncommon to catch sharks weighing in over 300 pounds. I recently had a trip where we caught two huge Bull sharks in only five feet of water, as well as several Lemon sharks and Black tip sharks. If chummed up correctly multiple species can be caught in the same area and can be non stop action for the whole trip. Some of the fights can last up to 45 minutes using lighter tackle that is also used for Tarpon fishing. Sharks are a great combination with a Tarpon trip, catching the big fish of the flats is a heavy duty experience that every angler enjoys.
Many other species have been eating well in the keys lately too, big Permit, Bonefish and Barracudas have all been caught on recent trips and are always great sport. Bringing home dinner has also been available, Snapper and Grouper have been plentiful. Now is the time for great flats fishing, the next few months the waters will be warm and the days longer plenty of great fishing. If you would like a trip you can email or call for your next great adventure.
