Inshore Fishing Report

Drippy Conditions prevail but the inshore fishing shines!


Have MirroLure.. Catch a Barracuda and smile..

Reports up and down the Florida Keys and Into Key West coming from Bamboo Charters and Dream Catcher Charters suggest that the tarpon fishing has come to a trickle in the upper Keys but still very strong in the Key West and lower Keys region.

Speaking with Capt. Matt Bellinger (Go Fish) of Bamboo Charters he says that the tarpon fishing in Islamorada has slowed considerably. Still a good bite at night around the bridges but it seems the migration has slowed. Back side though they are into the Trout, Reds and snook with some epic snappers. Barracudas are always a great way to crutch up here in the upper Keys to bend a rod with a fast fish.

Down in Key West Capt. Tommy Z of Dream Catcher Charters is still showing his clients plenty of tarpon and using the Hogy lure to jump numerous fish when conditions and his clients warrant. Sharks are a big part of my day when its raining and the people don’t mind still going. We do whatever it takes to bend rods and have a blast out there. But when it clears up and I can get on some decent tarpon without epic winds and waves.. It GAME ON>>> Tommy said.

The backcountry is always full of opportunity even in less than ideal conditions with sharks, barracudas, trout, jacks and mackerel year round there is always somthing to fish for in the Florida Keys backcountry.
