Key West - Saltwater Fishing Report
The Fishing Report. August 26, 2017.
Tarpon Season 2018 is just around the corner, so hurry up and book your dates before it is too late to lock in PRIME TIME TARPON SEASON DATES for 2018! I still have some dates available during April, May and June, but they are filling fast!
Just returned from another epic week at Turneffe Flats, Belize. Joe Kmetz was the Tarpon man of the week with several hookups, jumps and this nice one aided by his lovely wife Linda...
Joe's son Chris Kmetz caught a nice bonefish...
Capt. Dexter held his own with a few nice Permit (one of which had a fly stuck in its back! LOL!!!)
Luisa Cogan won the CAPTAIN'S CUP WITH 14 BONEFISH IN ONE DAY!!!
Erich Amplatz from Austria and his team of happy anglers fished with Capt. Dexter and crew during the May and June and hooked over 100 Tarpon, boating over 20 ranging from 50 to 160 pounds! Here is the 160 pounder, too big to fit into the camera frame, with a "shark hit" on its cheek...
The Thundering, Fornicating Herd of Tarpon arrived in mid May! A few schools had over a hundred fish stringing across the Atlanic flats in less than 6 feet of water! Here is Nancy and Mike Dinner enjoying some great action in the Marquesas...
Karl Kulcher of Austria jumped a nice Silver King on a Black Death fly and had a great morning chasing more Tarpon and Permit rolling and tailing in channels and flats.
The forecast for the remainder of Summer Tarpon fishing is excellent and I have some open dates in the late Summer and Fall, so contact me today at 305-304-5880 to lock them in.
