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! 

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

The flats fishing this past week has remained hot. There have been a multitude of schools of Bonefish seen on the grass flats recently. They have been seen in large numbers on the gulf side as well as the Atlantic side of the Keys. 

Although, the best bite of the day has been in the morning due to August’s increased water temperatures. These hot water temperatures cause the fish to become lethargic during mid-day which reduces the likelihood of landing a fish in the heat of the day. But the bite sometimes stays hotter, longer on the Atlantic side because of the cooler water entering the flats from the ocean. 

There have also been a larger numbers of permit sighted tailing on the flats this over the last two weeks. Lately, some of the schools of large permit have easily numbered in the thirties and forties on the surrounding flats. 

Also, there have still been quite of few tarpons landed recently over the last week. Most of the tarpon caught have been juveniles. However, there have also been anglers who have come into the Saltwater Angler who have caught fish in the 100-pound range. 

Key West Offshore fishing reports:

The offshore bite has remained steady this week; with a lot of ballyhoo on the reef and some  pilchards on the beach. 

The mangrove and Yellowtail snapper have continued to bite well between 70-90 feet. In addition, the Maui bite has continued to remain slow for this time of year.  

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