Visiting my silver friends....Key West, 3/24/16...coming soon to a theatre near you..

Well, it is almost time to stop talking to the wife, petting the dog, paying attention to the cat...you guessed it, tarpon are coming so I tend to become sort of single minded.....

My wife is a teacher so we were in Key West last week for a few days for her spring break. Had to go see my friends before they come see me....

Since they are coming in full force, nobody will talk about them....they are around already but it is about to go bat shizzit crazy....

Reels are all serviced, new line, hooks sharp, crabs flushing, it is about to be game on!!!!

Tight lines...

    You do any catching down there, or just feeding?

    that video gives away our secret...who said tarpon were hard to get to eat a bait? Now that's how we feed em when they roll next to the boat, give the hook and let em run!!!
    Had to cancel our trip to everglades a couple weeks ago. So I got the itch, bad, too.

    Last 3 weeks there's been a lot of tarpon around the south side bridge at night on either tide or any moon phase in the shadow line, they haven't been fished much yet, I throw my net right by em and they come right back up not afraid of a 12ft net landing almost on top of them! Lots of blue crabs to dip for bait as-well! Most the fish ive seen have been that perfect size fish for bridge fishing 40-75 lbs with a few big girls in there 100+
