Key West - Saltwater Fishing Report

The Fishing Report. Feb. 17, 2009. Tarpon and Permit migrate into Keys waters!

During the past few weeks we have seen a strong influx of migrating Tarpon and Permit making their way into Keys channels and flats. This is a 60 pounder landed around Key West during February by Dawna.

As the waters warm up into the mid to high 70's in between cold fronts, more waves of Tarpon and Permit should be showing. Bonefish have been available on the Atlantic flats during the warm ups in between cold fronts, and with the water warming into the upper 70's the Bones will migrate back into the Gulf flats as well. Here is a nice February Bonefish taken by Dawna's friend Chris.
