Flats fishing in the lower Florida Keys

Capt. Scott Yetter

Little Torch Key - Saltwater Fishing Report

Finally warmed up and the fishing was great last weekend. I had the pleasure of spending the day with Tim and Rhonda. They were a blast.. It was their first time flats fishing. They said they did not care what we went for as long as they caught a lot of fish on fly.... OK.. Fly fishing in the Florida Keys is a lot more challenging then trout in a western stream, but we came up with a plan for lots of fish. First we hit some coral heads for snapper and grouper...then got some shots at permit.. then beat up on lady fish. After boating a bunch of fish we decided to try some classic Keys style sight fishing.. Got some shots at some nice permit on the flats, then switched to tarpon. We got 4 tarpon to eat toad flies... Rhonda got three baby tarpon to eat a toad fly. The end of the day we found 5 to 6 foot tarpon floating in some warm up water.. could not see them until we were very close.. one ate a toad fly and several others followed it right to the boat.

The next day a cold front hit.. I am sitting in my apartment typing next to the space heater. It is March.. Great fishing in between fronts. The tarpon are here. Looks like the weather will improve towards the end of the week.
