December 13th 2014 – Christmas week looks to be a great week for fishing here in Key West on the Ultra Extended long range super weather forecast. Looking out to about December 22nd it looks like moderate conditions and consistent temps with light to moderate winds. Not in a long time have I seen Key West stay this cool for this long. A solid week of nothing over 70 degrees and relatively perfect weather with NE winds at about 5 – 15 and it looks as though we have no end in sight to the great consistent weather here in Key West.
The Reef fishing has been awesome with great catches of Yellowtail snapper, mutton snappers and all the mackerels you can reel in. The water clarity changes from day to day on the reef as the currents and tides move the color changes in and out. Catching enough for dinner off the patch reefs and outer reef is a piece of cake on board our bay boats for a 4, or 6 hour trip.
The Deep Sea fishing has been really great as well. Consistent catches of sailfish, dolphin and black fin tunas are out there and ready to be caught. Our sport fishing guys are reporting some great king fishing as well right on the reef with hard pulling king fish up to 40lbs.
Backcountry fishing is still where its at for those that just don’t want to risk heading offshore and take a chance of getting sea sick. Catch lots of fish on light tackle casting plugs and lures to nice sized trout up to 28″ jacks to 18 lbs, the occasional pompano and loads of lady fish. Use the lady fish for a live bait to entice a huge shark and get your pull on!.. A great day on the water that will send you to the local restaurant for some Hook and Cook action where they will prepare what you caught for a nice meal.
