FLATS FISHING IN KEY WEST

Hello Anglers! We at the Saltwater Angler wish you a warm and sunny welcome from our little slice of Key West paradise.

February is here in the Florida keys along with the colder winter air and colder water temperatures. But the warmer temperatures and water temps are on the way. With the warmer temperature closing in tarpon should start making there way into the keys in small groups. Along with bonefish and permit finding there way back onto the flats. With colder temperatures some of the more toothy critters will be more dominate on the flats. Cudas have begun to lay up in the current on flats trying to find an easy meal, giving angler a great opportunity to try and catch one. Best caught using something flashy and moving fast with a bait-fish profile. Some of our guides have been catching Speckled Sea Trout in the basins as the cooler water moves in using shrimp and jigs, and clouser styled flies on the bottom. Keep and eye out for Jack Crevalle pushing across the flats or hanging out with stingrays as they search for crabs and other crustaceans in the sand.

OFFSHORE FISHING IN KEY WEST

Tuna and Wahoo have shown up. With the full moon the Wahoo bite has been excellent with many boats catching multiple fish. A few sailfish have been spotted as well. The early morning and late afternoon bites have been the most productive with some great fish being caught. The Reef bite has been fairly decent. Plenty of Red Grouper and Mutton Snapper around. The Yellowtail snapper bite has been great as usual, and makes for great table fare.

Tight lines and Happy New Year!

 

We wish you tight lines and fish boat side from the staff at The Saltwater Angler!

These acrobatic babies are beyond fun and ready to crush a fly. Surprisingly we are still seeing quite a few good sized Bonefish and Permit around, however the quick changing climate and weather this time of year will affect that on a day to day basis.
