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.

Migrating Tarpon have settled into a good flow through the lower keys with early morning starts to the west of Key West can pay-off with big hook-ups. 

Many Tarpon have been found in the deeper channels through-out Key West harbor just before day break. These schools of Tarpon can be difficult to get them to eat with them usually moving quickly if not feeding on deep dives in the channels. 

Remember to pay attention to the multitude of other boats all looking for that hook-up as well. The harbors can get very busy when the large schools of Tarpon are packed in and feeding. The boats don’t always keep an eye out for YOU! If not on fly, captains do well using a 10″ Hogy in bone white or bone/black color.  

Good Luck!!!

Key West Offshore fishing reports:

THe gulf stream continues to bring in schools of bait to the nearshore reef. Captains are reporting many Dolphin, Mackeral and Sailfish feeding just off the reef in 100-200 of water.

 Yellowtail snapper fishing has been very good in 80-100 water with many flag size fish reports too.

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!
