What I said was that tournament fishing was too intense for ME. With that said, here is the link to the article…

Tarpon/Permit/Wind

Greetings to all Key West anglers (and those of you headed down here this season to fish but who are otherwise chained to a desk in parts northern and less fishy)! We have had a great week or so of fishing in the lower Keys–captains have reported numerous permit on the flats, as well as…

Welcome to April!!/Permit

As many of you by now undoubtedly know, April marks the beginning of tarpon season. This is not to say that there can’t be some epic days on the water in January, February and March, but April 1 through July 31 has been the traditional “tarpon season” as a general guide. While we had a…
