Key West Tarpon Fishing Report Feb 24th 2011

The Weather is perfect if there is such a thing for our mild winters. 78 degrees, sunny, easterly winds and slightly humid. Water temps snuck up over the 75 degree mark yesterday with a mid moon phase in the tide making for some mello tide changes and some slower feeders.

This time of the year as I have mentioned in our past reports for Dream Catchers here we have noticed some SLOB sized tarpon coming into the harbor. These fish are fair game for some pinfish action tossed into the groups as they slowly work around the channels and edges.

The tarpon fishing has been very good. We are running about 6 trips per day right now and expecting to almost double that as March approaches with even more consistent weather. oN each one of those trips that are tarpon related we are getting about 2 shots at fish in a 1 hour period on average. Keep in mind that in February, we will not book a Tarpon only fishing charter without some warning that this may be a slow day.. So we always back it up with some other fun species to fill the day.

March is coming and can be a bit of a bitch with some hard east winds, but the tarpon will still eat very well on those right tides. Keep posted here and link this report site to maintain your finger on the pulse of the Key West Tarpon Fishing and Dream Catcher Charters.

Check out our other posts.. we are adding to the fleet here at Dream Catchers with an Action Craft 2310 Coastal bay boat.
