Winter time in the Keys can bring be our most unstable weather patterns of the entire. year. North winds and cold fronts plague our flats leaving them a baron wasteland, except for a few toothy critters.
But, when the weather warms up, so does the fishing. Post cold front blue bird skies and warming patterns can make for some of the best sight fishing of the year. We target snook, reds and cudas when the water temps are a little cooler. But as the water warms up we change focus to permit, early season tarpon and even some bonefish.
Winter time also offers some of the best rod bending action packed fishing of the season. We commonly find big schools of jacks, mackerel, trout, cudas and sharks with the occasional cobia.
