Winter in the Florida Keys

Capt. Scott Yetter
February 10, 2010
Little Torch Key - Saltwater Fishing Report

The big tarpon had started to make an appearance.. This is the time of year we can find the front runners of the migration in some warm up spots on nicer days.. I count the days till tarpon season like most kids count the days until Christmas... The permit were also making a big appearance on the flats as well, along with some bonefish.

However the last cold front... dropped our water temperatures again.. today it is warming back up.. but looks like another front tomorrow... Fridays prediction is for lighter wind out of the east.. and starting to warm up.. Saturday looks like another front..

When water temperatures drop below 68 degrees.. tarpon, permit and bonefish leave the flats and go to deeper warmer water..

The good news is we can still fish for redfish, barracuda, ladyfish, snapper, sea trout, sharks and spanish mackerel!!

Winter in the keys.. I should not complain about our cold fronts. Day time highs during these fronts are in the mid 60s and low 70's... Lots of people up north will be shoveling snow the next few days....

Little Torch Key Fishing Forecast:

As soon as it warms up we will be putting tarpon in the air!
