Lets Go Tarpon Fishing In January!
I can call it. The South Easterly winds, as annoying as they can be when its blowing 25, are pumping warm Gulf Stream air and water into Key West. With the copious amounts of bait in and around Key West the hungry tarpon from the Gulf of Mexico have arrived and they are stacked up in our channels and out lying backcountry spots. Not an uncommon thing here in Key West. It happens about every 5-7 years and because I have been doing this a long time I know what to watch to keep an eye out for it. No, its not global warming, its just a warm winter.. don’t freak out, its been happening long before our first carbon emission..
Does that mean it will stay>? I don’t think so. (hope not).. We need a cold February to set things back on schedule. This is like the line in the sand to separate seasons. But, if February and March proves as warm as January…. Well then we might see tarpon on the flats by end of April.
NOW>. this is not to say we will book a “Tarpon Fishing” charter yet.. BUT>. We will certainly add this species to the list if we think you have a shot at boating one and you have the desire to do so. Warm winter time tarpon can be either fickle or hungry and it goes from day to day more so than regular season migrational fish.
