Bonefish Are Plentiful In Lower Keys

Key West Fishing Report
July 5, 2010


The shallow waters have been kind to us the past few weeks. Plenty of big tarpon are still abound and traveling the ocean and backcountry edges of the flats.

We've been getting out early to get the best bite on calmer days and have been successful.

Bonefish are plentiful all over the Lower Keys. It's still a great time for the Grand Slam (tarpon, bonefish, permit) and it will be all the way into the fall months.

The Gulf Oil Spill has of course been a concern for us, but the center of the spill is 475 miles away. The latest NOAA reports put us farther away from damage, it changes constantly but after this much time things are still in our favor and our waters are clean and fishable.

September and October are both terrific months for fishing the flats in the Keys. The warmer weather starts to taper off and there are permit, bonefish and smalller tarpon (with some larger ones mixed in). It is a terrific time to fish here and provides some wading opportunities that are accessible by boat.
