So the fishing held until Monday morning, when the wind swung around to the west and we lost about 6-10 degrees (f) on some flats we had marked on Saturday. Keep in mind that the surface area compared to volume ratio of the water on the flats allows it to heat up and cool down quite quickly, so after two days of warm weather we should be seeing mid 70’s once again and the tarpon will be available once again.
As of tomorrow it appears as the worst of the cold is over, with highs around 80 degrees (f) for the rest of the week. Keep in mind that this is a prediction, of course.
As for me, I am still recovering from a nasty “tarpon scrape” on my forearm that I received from the tarpon in the last post (I like to think of it as a “hello kiss”. Note to self: glad this tarpon wasn’t French) and have just returned from a few days off.
I hope that you all are headed to Key West to enjoy our fishing this Spring, and I ook forward to seeing you all in the shop.
