Key West Fishing Reports - November 12, 2018
It's time to start concentrating on fishing the wrecks and reefs this time of year. The flats have slowed considerably and there are new fish species that are showing up daily in the lower Keys. The reef fishing has been especially good with plenty of snappers, mutton, yellowtails and groupers.
The strong winds haven't slowed down the fishing, just makes it a little more of a challenge. Most of the mutton and yellowtail we caught on artificials, which helps to cull out the little guys. Grouper season runs through December so looking forward to some great fishing in the coming weeks.
Key West Fishing Report - November 2nd, 2018
The flats fishing has been solid with the slightly warmer than normal temps we've been fortunate enough to have had the past couple of weeks. The temperatures have been in the mid 80's during the day. However, the water temps on the flats have started to cool into the upper 70's which means things are slowly starting to cool down.
There are plenty of mullet stirring things up the shallows which has been good for catching cudas, jack crevalles and the few juvenile tarpon that are still left. This is a great time of year to catch bonnethead sharks as they are numerous in the shallows.
The permit and bonefishing in the flats has remained good with the warmer temperatures and with the near term forecast it should remain that way.
