In Cayman

January is usually calm although cold fronts are normal this time of year. All you need is one good warm day and the fish will come back up on the flats.

Although February, March, and early April can be windy, those months are prime time for permit.

Hurricane season starts in June and ends in November. Peak hurricane months are August, September, and October. This is a great time to fish, but it is wise to purchase trip insurance!

Barracuda are one of the most underrated fish, yet the “Cuda” is one of the most exciting fish to catch on the flats. The best time for catching Cudas is in the winter month when the water is cool and the fish are in shallow water.
