June 13 2013 – Give us good weather and the fishing will Rock!
After the tropical system that turned into Andrea passed through here and rinsed off the island chain we have had nothing but epic fishing conditions and incredible fishing reports to follow.
Inshore the tarpon fishing is still full on. The migration has not slowed a bit and there are thousands of fish circling Key West and the Marquesas Keys. On the flats the permit have been making a great showing. I was fishing the flats yesterday on what I would consider a weak incoming tide and was still able to put my fly fishing angler on some great shots of tailing fish. Bonefishing has also been pretty good but not stellar just yet. Some fish in the 4-6 lb range have been caught. Its not a stretch to try and go for the big three Key West Grand Slam. Elsewhere in the shallows we have some excellent table fare in our snapper population that has invaded the Key West backcountry waters. Mangrove snappers are super tasty and hard fighters on light tackle. Don’t forget our toothy guys for some extra fun with barracudas and sharks.
Offshore the dolphin fishing has been a 50 – 50 sport mixed with some blue and white marling on the troll. Several blue marlin and some whites have been hooked in the last few days on our offshore boats in this super calm waters conditions. Dolphin up to 40 lbs have been eating and entertaining anglers off Key West.
The reef is loaded with snappers and remember it is grouper season. Get to some good bottom with any of our light tackle fishing guides and you will be rewarded with a STELLAR dinner of Yellowtails, Muttons and Red Grouper. There are some black grouper around as well to put some more color in the box.
