Key West, Florida and places like the Marquesas (west of Key West) during the Spring months have some of the largest densities of permit and tarpon in the world. If you enjoy sightfishing in shallow, crystal clear waters in pursuit of the royalty of the gamefish universe, Key West has this and much more to offer dedicated fly fishing and light tackle anglers alike. I guide all angler skill levels from absolute novice to expert. I specialize in guiding for permit and tarpon.


Whether rushing after blitzes of albacore and striped bass in Montauk Point, NY or hunting for 100# + tarpon in Key West, ¬†FL Merrit White gives 100% all day, everytime, in making the fishing experience an exciting one. Merritt’s knowledge about what fish are “running” what they will likely feed on, finding fish, and then catching them, are ingredients for a great guiding experience.
