Another Tarpon Push on the Way!

Capt. Dexter Simmons
June 13, 2008
Key West - Saltwater Fishing Report

The Fishing Report.
June 12, 2008. MORE TARPON Strings, wads, pods, daisy chains and laid up moo-cow Tarpon have passed through the Keys in the last 14 days. We are expecting another push of migrating Tarpon during the next few weeks. Here is Del Bruce of Toronto with his second Silver King in two days. Both of them were in the 70-80 pound class. . Del's first fish was caught in the Marquesas on his first cast of the morning! Here Del shows his "down and dirty" Tarpon fighting technique. Take note of the Tarpon in the water to the right of Del as he angles his rod low to the water and in the opposite direction of the Tarpon's swimming path. This helps to tire the fish leading to an more time-efficient landing and release..
When we are out and about hunting for Tarpon, often we run across schools of Permit and Bonefish. Today we had several shots at each with a Tarpon fly. The cockroach Tarpon fly is especially proficient at luring in Bonefish and Permit. However, today we had a Black Death Tarpon fly on and we had no luck on the smaller Bonefish and Permit. Here is a Bonefish and a Permit caught with a Tarpon Cockroach fly..The Tarpon Cockroach fly is truly a grand slam pattern! For Bonefish and Permit, just strip it like you would any Bonefish pattern with short quick strips to entice a take. Good Luck!
