Key West Fishing Dream Catcher Charters

Day after Christmas Key West Fishing Report… 

Busy week rewards many anglers on the waters of Key West fishing with Dream Catcher Charters.

Winter is always a fun time to go fishing here in Key West and this week has been no exception to that rule. Great weather cooler temps and massive amounts of bait are the reasons for the great fishing all the same for the great forecast..

The 5 day weather forecast.. 

The Christmas week now till the 30th of December weather looks decent right up till Sunday the 30th Morning where we have the tail of a front pushing through and bringing our winds up to 20 – 25 kts, so Sunday and Monday might be a bit sporty for offshore fishing. The winds will be tapering off on Wednesday the 02 of January. Not much in the way of cold just wind. Till then this week Thursday Friday and Saturday look great.

Inshore Backcountry and Flats Fishing

The boys here at Dream Catcher Charters have been showing people a fun filled time on the water catching all sorts of species keeping the rods bent and the smiles endless. Trout, Redfish, sharks, barracudas, pompano, blue fish and large jacks are the fun to be had on our super light Daiwa outfits you can find on any one of our amazing bay boats. Winter fish seem to be twice as mean, fight harder and provide more volume than any other time of the year. Some of our 4 and 6 hour trips are catching up to 60 fish over 14 inches showing anglers of all ages and skill level a blast on the water fishing. On the flats the permit are still up and grazing looking for crabs.. Also.. on the flats we have been seeing some decent sized cobia following the rays making for an incredible shot for anglers to have some fun..Even during the blow this weekend the backcountry fishing will be great..

We still have some availability to get anglers out there this week for New years and beyond if you are coming to Key West or if you are already here give us a call and see what is available.

Offshore Deep Sea Wreck and Reef


Christmas Kingfish caught with Capt. Steven Lamp Dream Catcher Charters

The reef is on fire… baitfish everywhere and many toothy critters eating them. Some blackfin tunas reported with a scattered report of dolphin and a sail off the reefs. We have been getting into nice sized yellowtail snapper, black groupers and HUGE cero mackerels along with a constant bite of bonito and kingfish. Christmas day we boated a nice 30# kingfish for a young lady angler that had always wanted to catch one..There is a ton of bait around easy to net and use for fishing. The live bait just adds to the mess of fish to be caught.

We have some availability in our Deep Sea and wreck and reef fishing trips for 4,6 and 8 hours.
