Key West Fishing Report

We at the Saltwater Angler wish you a warm and sunny welcome from our little slice of Key West paradise. Thank you for your interest in our Key West Fishing Report for Fishing in Key West and the lower keys! 

Greetings from Key West!  Saltwater Angler has the information for flats fishing in Key West.

The weather has been a little on the warm side for this time of year. This has kept a lot of anglers still chasing Bone fish and a few Permit to the east and west of Key West,  some juvenile tarpon are still being found as well. With temperatures due to slowly cool down and water temps to fall the next few weeks, focus on the flats will change to different species. 

The large Barracudas, Sharks, Crevalle Jacks and Sea Trout will become a main focus in the “Back Country”. When the temps on the mainland dip, we can start to see some Redfish show up too. Keep in mind that snapper and smaller grouper make fine diner fare and can always be found near deeper ledges on flats. 

Key West Offshore fishing reports:

The offshore bite has been good as well the past week; captains have continued to hammer the large Yellowtail snapper from 200 feet of water all the way up to the reef.  Plus, there are still been some Tuna caught chumming with live pilchards in approximately 200-300 feet. Dolphin and Wahoo are being found as well. The Sails have started showing up too. They primarily feed on ballyhoo, which are extremely plentiful around the reef during the fall. We wish you tight lines and fish boat side; complements from the staff at The Saltwater Angler!
