Key West Fishing Forecast November 2012

Hey Gang…. We are still here after hurricane Sandy No effects at all. First off our thoughts and prayers go out to the folks in the North East.. We know what you are going through.. Just keep digging and in a little while it will just have been an experience in stead of a life altering circumstance. Just keep digging and if it looks damaged or water soaked call your adjuster… Oh and generators stay OUTSIDE!..

Grouper fishing Key West

Wreck and Reef Will Light Up. But.. Choose your day.

The fishing here in Key West has been OFF since before Fantasy Fest here in Key West so I really have nothing to report from the last week. Not only bad weather but festivities and what not.. We just took a break…

We are back on the water as of yesterday. the same old cast of characters were around like trout, jacks, sharks.. but it was a little cooler. Offshore things are back to normal with sailfish starting to show and the tuna on the reef line just like planned. I have not been to the west yet but I am sure the fish are hungry and the cooler water will help that bite.

Next Month.. November.. Its going to be good. We are seeing some cooling trends coming through lowering our water temps early this year which is good. I much rather have a line drawn in the sand from summer to winter than a back and forth deal where the fish remain confused about what season it is.

Backcountry and Flats fishing

Dont be afraid to book these fun trips. We have a blast back there on wintery days. Trout, redfish, permit, pompano, sharks, blue fish and jacks with the occasional cobia in the mix. the backcountry flats fishing days are major fun for those that are concerned about windy days (November is full of them) and getting beat up. We go hide back there and rip lips on rod bending trips or sneak up on some permit for the trophy hunter. Its all good. Bonefishing not so great this month in Key West… Look to Islamorada and Key Largo for the bonefish as they have the warmer waters longer.

Reef Wreck fishing

November is windy. BUT.. theres is a saving grace here. We will not go out if it sucks. you book your wreck reef day with us and if it is to windy to do what you want.. you don’t have to go, no charge.. Its easy.. I dont want to get beaten either. The reef bite will be off the rails in November. Cooler waters churned up a bit and not crystal clear means a strong grouper bite with mutton snappers and yellowtails for the table. Cobia will be on the wrecks as well. Keep in mind I will only kill one good sized cobia per trip or two smaller ones. Also keep in mind Grouper season closes in January.. Make use of the time. Lets get em. Call my office to see what I have going on.

Deep Sea Fishing

The sailfish are coming. Deep sea fishing both live bait and trolling the sail fishing will be great along with Wahoo, Tuna and the occasional larger Dolphin.. We are booking deep sea fishing trips now for November. Look at the Full moon for Wahoo shots and the tuna bite moves around the clock willy nilly, take your shots.
