Tarpon fishing in key west

Recommended Posts

the tarpon are in thick all around key west I have only hooked up on one and missed a second in the kayak and both times have been a blast one on a top water plug the excitement of seeing a large tarpon explode on my plug but did not have big enough hooks on it and today a nice 80 plus slow trolling a live blue crab fought for near 10 min before I forgot I needed to bow to the silver king I still got to see 5 or so nice jumps before he shook the hook cant wait to try my luck again on Tuesday

Have you bought trash fish from the shrimpers? It is like tarpon crack in Key West. Just sitting near that hole near the military base dropping trash fish back is always a good way to hook into one. Only problem is all the boat traffic and it might not be safe on a kayak.
