Big Pine Key - Saltwater Fishing Report

Over all weather has been warm this month... The few cold fronts we have had , have been brief and fairly mild. Water temperatures are in the mid 70s.. Large tarpon have started to move in to the early season spots..
Been finding schools of tarpon rolling on flat calm mornings.. Great to be fishing big tarpon again...Love being on the water this time of day..

Warmer temperatures on the flats are also good for bonefish, baby tarpon and permit.. Been finding schools of both on the right tides..

This is a good time of year for barracuda fishing too.. These fish are fun! But tough to catch on a fly... Best technique calls for a long cast beyond the laid up barracuda.. Tuck the rod under your arm and strip with both hands,, When the barracuda turns to look at the fly Strip Faster.. When he begins to move on the fly,, Strip as FAST as you can!

Big Pine Key Fishing Forecast:

In another couple of months the the tarpon migration will be in full swing.. Big schools of big tarpon will be cruising the flats..

I still have days available for tarpon season.. lets go fishing!
