Winter Fun of the Key West Flats

Can you believe it ? December already?

Last trip out we found winter back country fishing at its best.

Great comfortable 80 degrees, low humidity and non stop action from our winter fish friends.

I did go thru 3 dozen jigs but, we dont care.

Much Jack attack action, dozens of leaping Lady Fish and 15 perfect Pompano kept us busy for hours.

We had a run in with a school of Blue Fish that gobbled up some jigs until a switch over to wire leaders helped to land a few.

Several black Tip Sharks and one big toofy Barracuda added to the fun.

We headed for the Barn with few weapons left in the tackle arsenal, but a lot of laugh's

Thats the way it is in the back country this time of year, Permit on the flats and the seasonal fun guys chasing bait in the rivers and basins.

The Barracudas with show up anyday now for their winter flats buffet.

And I'm Watching the nightly news and tying jigs every night!
