Little Torch Key - Saltwater Fishing Report
The last week or so several of my anglers have called me concerning their up coming vacation and the possibility of the oil spill effecting the fishing.. Here is the latest NOAA report..
Oil Sheen, Tar Balls Forecast to Remain Offshore of Keys
June 7, 2010
Oil trajectory maps, released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration show non-contiguous, light sheens of oil and scattered tar balls from the Gulf oil spill remaining to the west and northwest of the Florida Keys through Wednesday.
According to NOAA, the forecast position of the southeastern edge of non-contiguous, very light and colorless oil sheen and tar balls for Wednesday is about 300 miles to the northwest of Key West.
Meanwhile, NOAA analysis shows most of the oil, especially heavy concentrations, has not entered the Gulf Loop Current. The Gulf Loop Current is a clockwise current that carries water from the Yucatan Channel north into the Gulf of Mexico, then back down south off Florida's west coast, past the Dry Tortugas and into the Gulf Stream.
Tarpon fishing remains good!! The season is winding down... Considerably less anglers on the water... Some days we are getting LOTS of shots other days we are having to work to find fish..
Capt. Tom Morgan: If it was easy, little girls with pig tails would be catching them....
