Lower Keys Winter Flats Fishing Report

Capt. Scott Yetter
December 9, 2014
Big Pine Key - Saltwater Fishing Report


I have been receiving inquiries daily, from anglers wanting to know what fishing conditions will be like for their up coming winter vacation.

Water temperatures currently are in the mid 70's.. Which means we can target the glamour species, tarpon, permit and bonefish.

Juvenile tarpon, bonefish and permit are on the flats during the warm periods before and between cold fronts

This time of year we do get cold fronts... Colder weather, lowers the water temperature... When water temperatures drop into the 60's tarpon, bonefish and permit are hard to find... They move off the flats, to deeper warmer water..

During these colder weather periods, we target, redfish, barracuda, sharks, jacks, sea trout, ladyfish, etc.. Always something fun to fish for here in the Florida Keys

Cooler water temperatures bring lots of big cudas on to the shallow flats to warm up. I love fishing barracuda.. These fish are a blast! Lighting fast, violent strikes, wild jumps and blistering runs.. If you have a heart condition, you may want to stick with something tamer...They can out jump a tarpon and out swim a bonefish.. Top speeds are 25 mph..

Target Species:

tarpon,permit,bonefish,redfish,barracuda, sharks
