January 25th Interim fishing report for Key West at Dream Catcher Charters
The Winds are Up.. Key West Fishing is Great! We have our whole fleet on the water making waves as well as catching fish.
Great report coming in from Capt. Kyle Kelso of Dream Catcher Charters. Fishing the patch reefs with MirroLure lipped plugs Yellowtail Snappers, Mutton Snappers and Grouper are all the fun on the edges. Casting will get you a mixed bag of hard hitting great fighting fun fish. Yellowtail snappers are quite large this time of year on the shallow reefs. Nice feature when the wind is blowing so you don’t have to get out very far to have some fun… Back in the backcountry Capt Kyle got into a MESS of cobia working a channel. (seen Here) with fish ranging from 10 – 25 lbs.
Capt. Kyle Walsh of Dream Catcher Charters also got into it today with a nice assortment of sharks. Bull sharks are super prevalent this time of the year as well as lemon shark and Blacktip Sharks. Check out our Shallow Water Monsters Tour shark fishing trip if sharks are your game.
Offshore its pretty breezy but the sailfish are starting to push on through. Several nice sailfish have been reported just outside the reef eating live baits and showing off with huge jumps.. This weekend is the annual Kingfish tournament here in Key West. All the big battle wagons are here to line up for a shot at some nice prizes catching a decent kingfish. With lots of bait in town we expect this year the winning fish will be over 60lbs..
