So as we are coming to the end of February and some of the coldest weather the Keys have seen in a few years there are a few things to look forward to.. March usually starts to warm up very fast down here and along with that so do the water temps for the back country.. This is always the time of year I anticipate the most! It starts laid up tarpon season! This is the time in the keys you will see the biggest fish all year and they are some bruisers! March is also an excellent time of the year for big permit! They along with tarpon come into the back country with the warming waters! I will be posting some pictures of these fish on this web site so look for some pictures of giant tarpon coming soon along with fishing reports!  – Joel

Veteran Keys Guide Capt Joel Dickey was kind enough to bring a little warmth and sunshine into our lives on what is a bone chilling Wednesday for most of us.  Now would be a great time to give Old Man Winter the proverbial finger by booking your own Keys trip with Joel today. You can find him at
