Capt. Steven Lamp Poling his Flats Boat Indigenous

April 15th 2013 – Backcountry and flats fishing report in Key West Florida with Dream Catcher Charters

Flats Fishing

Today was the day.. Wow, very nice. this weekend was favored by some pretty incredible flats fishing as well. The shallows are super clean and full of life. This is the start of the Key West flats fishing season. Bonefish, tarpon and permit will be the big three focus for fishing guides like Capt. Steven Lamp and Capt. Kyle Kelso both of Dream Catcher Charters. Over the weekend many shots at permit and bonefish were had in the shallows. Also for fun and entertainment we had some great shots at some hard pulling barracudas and super light black tip sharks.. Our flats boat has some dates available for dedicated flats fishing trips for these species.. Get with us and set something up.

Bookings for flats fishing with Capt. Steven and Capt. Kyle are filling up for the summer and fall. Call us..

Backcountry fishing.

The word of the day for backcountry fishing this time of the year is always tarpon. But thats not all. Fishing the basins and along the edges we have been getting into some kick ass trout fishing. Fish up to 4 lbs. Yea.. 4 lbs.. thats a HUGE Key West trout. Along with the trout bite we have also experienced some great hard pulling fun fishing with the Lady fish. Capt. Hugh of Dream Catcher Charters had an angler that caught a 4.2 lb lady fish on 12 lb test. thats a hoot. Shark fishing is also great this time of the year. We have been getting into some large bull sharks and lemons with little effort showing our anglers a great day on the water.

We are super busy this time of the year with our bay boats and flats boats.. Most of our trips are tarpon fishing But Call us anyway.. We may know someone that has the day open or we have a cancellation in our schedule that you can take advantage of..

The Forecast…

Looks like ESE winds will prevail keeping it warm and mild. 10 – 15 mph with some days higher.. A trend for lighter winds will be coming on the 21st.. Keep in Mind the tarpon will be on the flats in May along with the rest of them.
