Key West Report

Despite the cool weather, the fishing out of Key West has been pretty darn good...


Nationwide, the temperature has been downright cold – even as far south as Key West. Under normal circumstances, the worst case scenario that far south is that you might be a little chilly in the early morning but by 10’oclock or so, you’ll be stripped back down into shorts and flip flops.  Despite the cool weather, the fishing out of Key West has been pretty darn good. Inshore,  good numbers of permit have been spotted cruising on the surface in deeper water and as always, a live crab is the best bet for those fish.  Bonefishing has been hit or miss but if you put in the time, you’ll find them and normally when you do, they are super sized fish. Offshore, sailfishing has been very good with anglers releasing as many as 6 fish in a day. Bottom fishing has also been productive.  Best tactics are using vertical jigs or live threadfins. There have been a lot of snappers and amberjack eager to eat but also, there’s been a healthy number of big African pompano around.
