Key West is known as a mecca for fisherman around the world. Possibly one the fish it most famous for is the tarpon.
This fish is sometimes called the “silver king” and it is common to catch them up 150#! That’s a huge fish, and to top it off this fish likes to congregate inshore, in the Key West harbor, in the channels between islands and on saltwater flats of the Florida Keys
This means that you can target them on small boats, and also often when its too windy to go out to the reef or offshore.
