Migratory tarpon migrate thousands of miles throughout their lifetime, with the Keys being one of its main fisheries. The Lower Florida Keys is famous for its tarpon spring migration and one of the best places in the world to sight-fish for it. Each year, starting early spring into early summer, tarpon migrate through the Keys by the thousands. During the peak of its annual migration, it is not uncommon to see and cast to multiple tarpon on any given day out on the flats. For most anglers, hooking a tarpon is one of the great thrills of a lifetime.
Captain Lindsay Harper and Miss Inclined Charters know the thrill of hooking and catching a tarpon and have hundreds created opportunities for anglers of varying experience to hook one of these silver kings.
Permit are shallow water schooling fish that have colors of vibrant greens, yellows, blues, and silvers. While they are plentiful in the exquisite waters of the Lower Keys, hooking them is altogether another experience and considered one of the greatest challenges by many seasoned anglers. The best permit fishing takes place in the spring, which is considered its pre-spawn months when they are frequently seen in large schools. In late April and May, they move out for cooler waters to spawn but then return to the flats and back-country in summer and stay until the cooler waters set in.
Permit are one of the strongest and most challenging fish to catch. Once hooked, they can go into marathon runs and will fight relentlessly. Catching one on a fly rod is considered one of the greatest accomplishments an angler can achieve. Miss Inclined Charters put you in the right place at the right time to hook one of these elusive beautiful fish.
Fishermen from all over the world come to the shallow, tranquil waters of the Lower Keys in search of our Bonefish, what is rightfully named the Gray Ghost. Because of its blue-green and silver coloring that camouflages it from the predatory likes of the barracuda and shark, fishing for bonefish can be a unique challenge. These torpedo-shaped fish are often difficult to spot and skittish when pursued. This makes the skill of the fisherman an important asset when fishing for these “silver bullets.”
Bonefish can be fished throughout the year, with peak fishing between the months of June and August when the warm morning waters are calmest. Test your bonefish fishing skills or learn new ones with Captain Lindsay Harper and Miss Inclined Charters.
Sharks and Barracuda
Shark and barracuda fishing in the Keys is an unforgettable experience. The shallow waters off the Lower Keys and Key West attract these aggressive predatory fish. Hunting and sight-fishing for sharks and barracuda in the flats offers crystal clear water and the sheer excitement of watching these fish follow the scent of the bait and attack when the time is right.
Shark and barracuda are year-round fishing opportunities in the Keys, and for those who are looking to pull in something big with lots of fast action, it offers an excellent opportunity for the angler. At Miss Inclined Charters, let us put together a charter that offers the experience of a lifetime.
