November Deep Sea Fishing Is HOT!

Key West deep sea fishing report and forecast

November 4th 2019 – Summer like conditions prevail this November. Left over from an unseasonably warm and relatively wet October. Our storm season is all but over with no issues or threats on the horizon from the tropics as our eyes are diverted to the North watching for the first cold fronts that might have enough muster to come cool us off and kick off our winter fishing Key West.

Deep Sea Fishing Report

All I can say is Holy Smokes.. Pick one.. Sailfish, tuna, wahoo and dolphin it was all good this last week. As we got out past the reef and set up for trolling the bite was steady and the results were strong with nice size dolphin ( mahi). Some of the dolphin were in the 15-20lb range. add that to some kick ass sailfish bite as we worked down the color changes and then put a wahoo in the boat on the deep troll and you have a Stellar day of deep sea fishing.

Typical Key West Fishing

This time of the year we expect a good run of wahoo just outside the reef and down past the bar South West of Key West. The full and new moon will enhance this but a good bet is wahoo mixed with blackfin tuna. Along with that we typically get sailfish coming in and crashing the massive amounts of ballyhoo on the reef edges making a high flying target and adding cool flag to fly when we come back to the dock. Im not sure anyone can predict a good late October Dolphin (mahi) bite, that can be hit or miss as a typical target for deep sea fishing Key West.

Deep Sea Fishing Forecast

Its anyones guess or bet. The first cold front will certainly change things but I am thinking just change. No better no worse. We welcome the cooler air obviously (cause its been brutally hot) but the fish react to is as well. As a rule of thumb. North winds – Blackfin tuna, Wahoo, Sailfish, kingfish…. Easterlies – Sailfish with some blackfin and wahoo and maybe some dolphin.. South Easterlies – Dolphin, wahoo, Maybe a sailfish or blackfin tuna. So, as you can see, its all good.

Plan A Fishing Trip

If you are going to book a Key West deep sea fishing charter booking ahead is always a good idea, however.. We are not super busy this time of the year. A fishing charter angler might want to roll the dice on the weather and take a chance that his favorite deep sea fishing boat is available when they think the weather and the fishing will be right for them. Most likely you will get what you want in the terms of boat, timing and fishing. DON’t Do this after December 15th. Our fishing charter schedules change and we are super busy..
