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.

Greetings from Warm and Sunny Key West!

The lower keys will see our 2nd cold front of the year over the next few days. Temps are supposed to get to the high 60’s. 

Key West Offshore fishing reports:

The cooler water temperatures have started bringing the wolf of the flats (Cuda’s) into play. More will begin to move into the shallows. The drop in water temp brings an abundance of bait into the shallows, so predator fish like Cudas and Black Tip sharks will be on the hunt.

 These fish are a great fight on fly as most who live here look forward to this time of year. 

Bonefish have still been very thick, but finicky with the cooler water, and many Captains have reported large numbers to the west of Key West. 

Permit fishing has slowed down some. Reports have been sporadic lately. Some Captains have had more success than others, but that’s permit fishing for you. Water temperatures should be in mid to lower 70’s. 

Wishing everyone a fantastic Holiday Season!
