Once in the back country of Key West we deiced to anchor up in a channel to see if the sharks would cooperate.
Eric brought his son Braden to Key West to celebrate his Eleventh birthday, and what would a trip to the Keys be without going fishing?
We put out a butterflied bonito and  a couple of baits and waited to see what would find us. We then anchored up in a channel at the north end of Key West harbor and put out a couple of live baits for a tarpon. It didn’t take long before we had on a nice black nose shark, a perfect fight for Braden to wet his chops. I marked some fish under the boat so we anchored up and put out the baits and began chumming for the silver kings.


There have been a few rolling around but the bull sharks have moved in and have been attacking them as we have been fighting them, which has kept them moving around and a little skittish. They are a great fight running off line and changing direction and swimming under the boat.
After a few minutes of chumming we saw some tarpon rolling in front of the boat so we pulled the anchor and reset in front of the fish.
While we didn’t manage to get a tarpon on we did hook up one of the massive bull sharks which we fought for about fifteen minutes before it managed to wear through the mono leader.
It only took a few minutes before we rewarded with a 120 pound monster tarpon jumping and ripping line off the screaming reel.
When we settled back on the anchor the tarpon were no longer rolling so we decided to make our way to the back country. We fought a bunch of the black nose sharks plus a double header black nose and big nurse shark, and finally a nice lemon shark.
Stephanie did her best to fight the monster but having recently broken her leg made it nearly impossible to finish the monster.


We reset our fishing lines and it didn’t take long until Sarah was doing battle with her first ever tarpon. We went back and grabbed the anchor and were chumming when we got another short lived bite.It was then Andrews turn to fight a tarpon to the boat.
The last bite was another really big one that unfortunately got wrapped around something on the bottom before breaking off.
After a while I gave them the option of continuing to try for a tarpon or moving to the back country and trying flats fishing for a shark. Spring in Key West means tarpon and what could be more fun than a charter of big hard fighting monsters in the warm sun while the folks in the north dream of warm weather.
We anchored up in one of my favorite shark spots where we managed to get three different species of sharks, including a black nose shark, a black tip shark, and a big lemon shark.
