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.

Excellent spring weather is finally here. Next week will have variable winds, depending on the day, and a chance of showers later in the week. Feels like spring already. Moderate winds and mid 70’s for the next 10 or so!

The weather seems to have finally made a change toward normalcy with mid to high 70’s most of the next 2 weeks. The winds will still be averaging 16-22 mph with a few days having stronger gusts, but that is good for this time of year. 

Captains have been reporting small groups Tarpon starting to migrate through the lower keys. Bone fish have been a pleasant surprise with many fish being caught as the water temps rise. Look to find most Bones active on a tide change later in the day when the suns had a chance to warm the shallows up. 

Permit have still been quite slow this time of year. There have been some permit around, but as always they can be picky and elusive. 

The large Cudas are still very busy on the flats even with the warming water. These guys are a great challenge on fly or light spin gear. Remember to get the fly moving fast to get their attention. 

Here at Saltwater Angler, we wish everyone tight lines and fish boatside!

Key West Offshore fishing reports:

Offshore there have been a great variety of fish being caught. Snapper and grouper have been the normal culprits on the bottom. 

There have been a mix of Blackfin Tuna, Cobia, and Sailfish with some Kings and Barracudas also in the mix.

The Key West reef fishing report:

See above reports.



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