Tarpon Fishing Report For Key West 4th Of July

Key West Tarpon Fishing Report

tarpon Tarpon fishing in Key West in July fishing tips, times to go.

July 4th 2020 – One of the driest summers I have seen here in Key West. no rain can mean higher than usual water temps. We are seeing temps in the high 80s which is right in line with normal for this time of the year. Tomorrow (Sunday the 5th) is the full moon and the tides are certainly reflecting it. Strong incoming tides with a raging outgoing tide that dumps Key West and the surrounding waters empty with some of the flats actually showing.

The Tarpon Fishing

The migration of tarpon moving down the beaches has slowed to a trickle but our tarpon season is not over. There are still tarpon in the channels and backcountry. Early birds and late afternoon anglers will be able to take advantage of some good tarpon fishing. Our tarpon fishing will remain decent through September.

Right now the clear skies at night during a full moon are a tough bite during the top of the day. This can be true at any time of the year here in Key West. Tarpon love a full moon to feed hard at night and early morning in our clear waters. Typically during the day they are not interested in much but get out the feed bag in the late afternoon into the evening hours, to get the most of your time fishing for them. So, my suggestion is, if you want to get a good shot at a tarpon here in Key West between the 4th and the 7th of July. Get started early or go out later have a plan “b” when the bite is slow.
