Summer fun on the flats around Key West
Report Date: August 12, 2018
What a summer it has been for fishing.
Lots of beautiful days being spent on the flats around Key West.
Tarpon ? Most days if we look we can still find a few swimming around on the Oceanside. They’re not always easy to feed. But then again, are the tarpon ever easy to feed on the flats?
Bonefish ? These guys are at the top of the list for a good summer species to target on the flats. I’ve been finding quite a few of these fishing swimming on the Gulf side flats
and the Atlantic side flats.
Permit ? These guys are always tough. Not always tough to find but certainly tough to feed. Lots of patience required. If you’re looking for easy, this is not your fish. A great many hours spent trying to get a shot, in hopes that he chooses to eat the fly.
