Key West Flats Fishing With Capt. Mike Bartlett, Lots Of Pictures, Lots Of Fish

I've been lucky enough to spend two weekends in Key West over the last month and even luckier to spend them on the bow of Capt. Mike Bartlett's Beavertail skiff.

Mike is the kind of guide who will pull up to a flat and say "We should start seeing some bones here in about 15 minutes," and 20 minutes later we'll be landing our first fish.

He's also the best permit guide I know and makes hooking these fish almost easy.

A great baby tarpon from one of Mike's spots in the Key West backcountry.

If you're heading down to the Lower Keys, do yourself a favor and give him a call at 305-797-2452. You'll definitely have a great time with Mike no matter what you catch. His website is www.keywestflats.net.
