Record Cold Water Winter

Capt. Dexter Simmons
February 22, 2010
Key West - Saltwater Fishing Report

The Fishing Report. Feb. 22, 2010. Cold water due to record low temperatures this winter has stifled the bite. There have been few good fishing days this winter, however we are optimistic going forward into the Spring months that a significant warm up will bring the fish onto the flats again. In the meantime, there have been many opportunities to fill the fly boxes with new patterns for 2010. When the weather warms up again, we should be able to find some more Cobia, Barracuda, Permit, Bonefish and Tarpon.

Here is Dave McComb with a beautiful Permit.
We also had some good baby Tarpon fishing during December.
This past fall there were lots of Permit on the flats, as our weather was quite mild.

Here is a 24 pound Permit and a 6 pound Bonefish taken by Atlanta Braves star lefty Tim Hudson. Tim and his wife Kim celebrated their 10th anniversary here in the Keys. Good luck to them, they are a great couple!

An early run of migrating Tarpon is expected in the near future as weather warms up here in the Keys! There are also some resident Tarpon available. Grand Slam fishing is available during this winter and upcoming spring season, so if you are
still after that elusive first Permit or Tarpon or Bonefish, now is the time! Call me and let's set up your March trip! Toll Free: 877-228-8497, or 305-745-3304.
