Sue Sea and I took a trip to Key West this weekend, stopped at the south end of Seven Mile Bridge. Veteran's Park is on both sides of the road exactly where the bridge ends. Free ramp on the bayside.
At the launch there is a small key (Little Money Key) just to the north, abandoned dock on the north side, surrounded by flats. Tons of diving birds and bait.
Then under the Seven Mile to oceanside to Money Key near the south end. The currents really rip here, hugh amounts of water were flowing out and I fished the flats to the oceanside of this key. There are also flats to the north of it.
Anyway, I spotted and cast to at least 4 tailing bones, plus Sue Sea spotted a couple of Permit. We spooked a bone that had to run 10 lb.
No hookups but it was great being on an active flat. BTW, this was an outgoing tide, end of low, strong current flow. Bones were in about 12 to 18 in. of water, permits in about 2 or a bit more.
BTW, I really paid the price with my hernia, don't think I'll be yakking again soon...
