Hello Anglers! We welcome everyone a warm Island greeting from the Saltwater Angler!
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 west of Key West. To the east 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. 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. Some Dolphin are still being found as well. The Sails should start 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!
