Migrations of fish, the rise and fall of tides, and weather changes through the year affect fishing in the Florida Keys. Bill Horn offers both how-to tips for each season of the year and first-hand experiences recounted in detail. 45 B&W photos, 16-p. color section with 35 photos, 12 B&W illus, 3 maps; 6x9 inches, 160 pgs.

Silver tarpon cruise transparent waters in spring. Black-tailed permit return from offshore spawning in summer, and fishermen aim for the Grand Slam—catching a permit, tarpon, and bonefish on the same day. Cooler fall weather puts big bonefish on the flats and gives you one last chance for laid-up tarpon. Includes key’s color and history, geology, ecology, and seasonal foods. Illustrations by Bob White.
