November 14th 2016 – Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, rod bending season is here! The backcountry fishing bite in Key West is on fire. As expected, all of our winter time species of fish are showing up right on schedule. If your looking to head out and have some fun. This is the time to do it on one of our fully rigged 24 ft Yellowfin Bay Boats. Here at Dream Catcher Charters we look forward to this time of year because you just can’t go wrong! All types of jacks, snapper, grouper, trout, ladyfish, barracuda, sharks, mackerel, the list goes on forever. Everyone is in town for the party. The fishing guides at Dream Catcher Charters have tapped into a easy, fun, and most importantly successful way of fishing the backcountry of Key West. Drifting certain areas and blind casting different kinds of soft plastics (Z-man is one of our favorites) as well as some other types of lures offers us a nice variety of species.

This is your first time fishing? No problem! I have had dozens of people pick up a fishing rod for the first time and catch more than the “seasoned veterans” by the end of the trip. Smiles and high fives are shared by all in the backcountry this time of year. Even though there sometimes is a bit of a breeze, it’s no problem for us backcountry fishing guides. And actually for our drift fishing program we prefer a little bit of wind. The shallow water flats and mangrove islands keep the water relatively calm. Our Motor Guide trolling motors power us down pristine mangrove shorelines as well as keep us stationary in a twisting backcountry channel with their Pinpoint GPS technology. You can’t go wrong with the best tools in the business and professional guides that Dream Catcher Charters has to offer. Give Islandgenn a call and she will set you up on a 4, 6, or 8hr trip. See you soon!

Backcountry Fishing Charters In Key West Are Just a Call away.. 

For our backcountry fishing we use Z Man artificial soft plastics. Not only are they so lifelike the fish just cannot pass them up, but they last forever with the new ElaZtech material they are made of. We always recommend great products for fishing, especially if we use them.
