FLATS FISHING IN KEY WEST

Hello Anglers! We welcome everyone a warm welcome from The Saltwater Angler!

This May has been one of the toughest, weather-wise, in years.The tarpon are here but consistently inconsistent. We have started seeing nice solid strings on the ocean side beaches and inlets. At first light, happy fish are ready to eat a well presented fly. As the light gets higher these ocean fish get wary. Try Longer Leaders and smaller, lighter flies to fool these fish. Hint; never hesitate to use a worm fly this time of year. The Palolo worm hatch is on the horizon! Keep your ears open in the afternoons and be ready to head out at a moments notice. Bonefish have been consistent at certain tides up to the east. Find good current on a falling tide. Sandy flats should produce some good shots at the bones.

OFFSHORE FISHING IN KEY WEST

Offshore there has been a very good sailfish bite happening. They love the rough water. The guys flying kites have been whacking them. Don't think that small chin-weighted and skipping ballyhoo won't get a strike though!

Key West Flats Fishing

FLATS FISHING IN KEY WEST

Hello Anglers! We welcome everyone a warm welcome from The Saltwater Angler!

Rain, rain go away! This May has been one of the toughest, weather-wise, in years. The tarpon are here but consistently inconsistent rain and wind make it difficult to find and see migrating fish. Also, along with the migration of tarpon comes the migration of guides who only fish here for a few months out of the year. There isn't a point, flat or channel edge that doesn't have a skiff sitting on it. All of these factors make for a challenging day on the water. But if it was easy it would not be as much fun, and the rewards can be fantastic! If you put your time in and be patient, the right scenario for hooking up will present itself. Always be vigilant and ready to make a quick cast. Anglers must take advantage of every opportunity that comes their way. Line management is key when the wind is a factor. Make sure to have your line stripped in so it lays on the deck of no basket is being used. There are other means of keeping the line in order, like mats and spikes. Remember, if it can go wrong, it will. Keep your head in the game and eliminate all of the little things that can ruin a shot at a big fish. Now we have started seeing nice solid strings on the ocean side beaches and inlets. At first light, happy fish are ready to eat a well-presented fly. As the light gets higher these ocean fish get wary. Try Longer Leaders and smaller, lighter flies to fool these fish. Hint; never hesitate to use a worm fly this time of year. The Palolo worm hatch is on the horizon! Keep your ears open in the afternoons and be ready to head out at a moment’s notice. Bonefish have been consistent at certain tides up to the east. Find good current on a falling tide. Sandy flats should produce some good shots at the bones.

Key West Fishing Report for January 3, 2018

Hello Angler's from Capt. Tony Murphy.  Thank you for your interest in my Key West Fishing Report and Fishing n Key West and the lower keys.!

Key West Flats Fishing

FLATS FISHING IN KEY WEST

Hello Anglers! We welcome everyone a warm welcome from The Saltwater Angler!

Winter for the lower keys has finally set in on us. We will have much colder temperatures over the next couple of weeks as the cold north winds find their way down south. Winds will be in the mid 20's with temperatures dipping into the 50's as well. These will unfortunately make the flats a little quiet. Permit and Bonefish will be much deeper than normal for protection from the cold. Cudas, Sharks and Jacks will be the majority of species to stalk while the weather stays cold. We do sometimes see Redfish tailing in shallow flats but this is a rarity and usually not on the game plan for the day. Snappers and Sea trout will be a good choice for anglers trying out the back country flats.

OFFSHORE FISHING IN KEY WEST

Offshore remains steady with plenty of bait pushed out by the north winds. Look for Yellow Tail snapper to be very aggressive just outside the reef line in 40-60 feet of water. The Tuna also remain abundant in a mix bag of Bonita's and skip jacks too. Stocking up on as much live bait you can find will help you out hooking up with these winter brutes. Some captains are finding larger King Mackerel and some Wahoo in deeper water to the west end of the bar just outside of Sand Key tower. Whatever your trip you have planned, here's the SWAngler wishing you tight lines and fish boat side! We wish you tight lines and fish boat side from the staff at The Saltwater Angler!
