Key West Fishing Report March 15th

Boy has it been busy.. We have been running at full steam here at Dream Catcher Charters.

Backcountry fishing has been the name of the game this past week with huge volume of fish being caught on a multi species level.

As I write this Capt. Dave just came in after fishing all day with a man and his young son. They were able to put 3 species of snappers, 2 species of Shark, Jacks, pompano and a Tarpon to boot. Now thats a pretty great day for a 12 and 13 year old and his first time fishing the Key West area from england.. Very Cool, way to go guys.

Capt. Kyle (AKA Norton) texted me a few minutes ago and he was telling me about his fly fisherman had shots at two permit so far on the flats here off of Key West tailing.. Grrrrr. he said the angler has great skill sets for fly fishing till you put him in front of fish then he falls apart.. Reminds me of an article I wrote J.A.F.F. its a fishing technique that helps with this sort of “buck fever” that sets in on fly fishermen. Maybe it could help you all out there too..

Capt. Kelso is was neck deep in it this afternoon catching redfish and seeing many permit on the edge of a flat to the North.. Till some moron mightier than thou competitive fishing guide ran him over, just 20 ft away saying he was looking for Blue Runners.. Kelso professionally redirected his efforts and was very cordial to the aforementioned moron and was able to catch more fish after he was interrupted.. Thats just bad business for everyone to be a jerk intentionally. there is a ton of water out there and many ways to go around another fishing guide with super nice people on board.

The weather here in Key West is windy.. 10 – 15 today with a promise of 25 by the end of the week but the fishing will go on especially in the backcountry waters on our incredible fleet of bay boats by Yellowfin Yachts and Action Craft powered by Mercury Marine Opti Max and Verado outboards.

We are getting very filled up in our schedule but we have other fishing guides that we work with to get you out there and on your way to a great day of fishing here in Key West, Florida. All you have to do is call and let us set you up. Speak with Gennifer, Robert or myself Capt. Steven and we will point you in the right direction.
