The Famous Key West Harbor
The Key West Harbor has the best Tarpon fishing in North America. Large schools of Tarpon start to migrate to the Harbor in March and fishing is in full swing in April. You will see large schools of  80lb plus Tarpon rolling around the boat throughout the day. There are large Permit and Cobia mixed in with these migrating fish. We anchor on top of the fish once located and chum. It is not rare to hook a dozen or so while fishing the Harbor. After landing several fish we usually tie up the boat and have lunch at the Raw Bar that is less than a mile away. Once you've regained your strength it's time for round two, The Afternoon Bite!

Tarpon  (Megalops atlanticus)

Known as the "Silver King", it was one of the first salt water species to be declared a game fish. Once hooked, they but up a stubborn and spectacualr fight, often leaping up to 10 feet out of the water. Tarpon are an excellent fighting fish and can some times take hours to land. They range from 40 to 150lbs.

Fishing methods including anchoring in the harbor and chumming with fresh shrimp boat trash (bycatch). This method is very productive giving anglers dozens of shots at the Silver King.

We also fish at night for Tarpon, it can be extremely exciting. Casting top water lures and live bait to feeding fish.

The All-Tackle World Record is 283lb. caught March 1956.

Permit  (Trachinotus falcatus)

Permit

Permit are one of the most sought after game fish in Key West. When hooked it makes a long, fast run and is a tough fighter on light tackle. Their preferred diet consists of crustaceans.

Fishing methods include sight casting live crabs, jigs, or flies to schooled fish.

The All-Tackle World Record is 56lb. 2oz., caught June 1997

Permit are caught year round in Key West.

Cobia (Rachycentron canadum)

Permit

Also called Ling, and Crab Eaters, the Cobia is a highly rated, hard hitting game fish that is prone to long, powerful, determined runs and occasional leaps. Often when it is hooked the entire school will surface along with it.

Fishing methods include bottom fishing with live bait, jigging, and casting artificial lures. Excellent white, firm fillets are found on Cobia.

The All-Tackle World Record is 135lb. 9oz. , caught July 1985.

Best action is during the colder months, but smaller individuals can be caught year-round.
