Florida Keys Spring Time Fishing Options:

The months of March through June is known as Tarpon Season in the Florida Keys.  During this time we eat, sleep, and breath Tarpon.  You can still target and catch every other species we have here in South Florida but you can bet that if the conditions are right the Silver King is your best option.

Spring time is definitely one of the best times to fish in the Florida Keys.  The months of March and April are transitional months.  Meaning it’s not entirely summer like conditions.  We occasionally get cold fronts which can bring windy days that can mess the Tarpon fishing up for a day or two.  When this happens we do one of two options.

All Other Available Species:

1.) Target other species like Snook, Redfish, Snapper, Grouper, Cobia, Mackerels, Barracuda, Sharks, etc.

2.) For our more advanced sight fishing anglers we like to target Permit up on the flats on fly fishing gear or light tackle spinning equipment.
