Is It Tarpon Time? – Maybe..

Tarpon fishing in Key West is almost year round with good fishing in February.

February 5th 2019 – This is my 25th year as a professional tarpon fishing guide. I have learned many things about tarpon fishing as one can imagine especially with as many tarpon as I have handled along side my boats for my clients who caught them on live bait, fly fishing and artificial. One thing I have yet to learn is when we will have our first consistent days of tarpon fishing in Key West?  This year is no different. az

Don’t get excited I am not getting ready to tell you that if you plan on being here on February the 23rd that you will have loads of shots of tarpon. My crystal ball just does not go out that far and yes, I think that might be a thing…. But.. What I will tell you is that if you get out with me or any of my fishing guides here at Dream Catcher Charters in the next foreseeable week or so, I betcha we will get you some shots at the Silver King.

Tarpon Fishing Report

In the last few days since the frigid temps our Key West fishing guides have been jumping 1-5 fish per trip and landing some. For February this is a 10 of 10 for YAY factor because typically we don’t get any numbers of fish till March. Backcountry fishing Key West has been awesome as well with many different species to choose from.. Including permit while flats fishing.

Tarpon Fishing Forecast

I can say from what we did and saw today on the water just off Key West we have some great days coming as long as the weather doesn’t do anything freaky. I will be certain to have my guides push for them first thing in the morning for anglers who would like to roll the dice on catching an early season tarpon to go home with.
