George Poveromo's World of Saltwater Fishing
SUGARLOAF, LOWER FL KEYS - BACKCOUNTRY FLATS AND ROCKS!
In this highly entertaining and educational episode, Poveromo and legendary lower Florida Keys guide Tim Carlile head out into the maze of shallows, flats, creeks and mangroves behind Sugarloaf Key, seeking whatever opportunities present themselves. Aboard Poveromo's Mako 21 LTS powered by Mercury's brand new V8 Four Stroke outboard, they initially encounter a school of tarpon, and Poveromo misses their only shot. Jack Crevalles then move in and provide fast action. Carlile then heads for a few flats, where he chums in bonefish. After releasing their fill of bonefish, he then runs to several coral heads, where Poveromo pitches live pinfish for mangrove snapper. The tranquility and variety found within these back waters have impressively maintained that old Florida Keys 'feel'. Poveromo stayed at Parmer's Resort on Little Torch Key. The team also takes in a new restaurant in Sugarloaf Key - the South of the Seven.
