We have a saying in the Keys. There are only two types of weather. Whether you are going fishing or whether you are not. We have been going fishing and it has been good. Some of the big tarpon are starting to show up - we got a 100 pounder a couple evenings ago. The bite wasn't red hot - but we hooked two and landed the one. The spanish mackerel have been red hot action with fish up to 6 pounds.. The patch reefs are still holding plenty of variety with porgies, snapper, grouper and a host of others. The backcountry has been good for trout, snapper, some reds, black drum, sharks and of course the jacks and ladyfish. So, even with this wild weather (very cold for this time of year), the fish don't seem to mind - too much!
Hey Doug Horst - if you are reading this - send me that tarpon video you took with me!
