About an hour ago, a long, red line on the radar passed over Key West and bringing the end to what has been a truly great week of fishing here in Key West. It all started last weekend with a day that Don and I had jumping 3 tarpon and landing 4 really nice bonefish and then continued all week with fantastic permit fishing and some good night tarpon fishing, as well.
Each day produced 15 to 20 good shots at permit and I also fished 2 night charters, boating 4 fish and jumping another 10. I fished Thursday with Craig Cantelmo from Van Staal and his buddy Glen. The happy angler in the photo is Glen with his first permit on fly. We won’t talk about the permit that got away from Craig…
The next week looks a bit blustery but hopefull things will calm down and we will get back to what has so far been an outstanding permit season. See you on the water.
