Deep Sea Fishing Report

January 23rd 2017 – Its blowing like there is no tomorrow at the moment but an end in in sight. Lets talk about last week and look forward to the possibilities of next week while the weather sucks at the moment..

Last week was – in a word- EPIC. The weather, the fishing the everything. Reef fishing bite was amazing and the blue water bite all up and down the Florida Keys Fishing was incredible. Reports of many catches of Sailfish, blackfin tunas, kingfish, wahoo and the occasional dolphin. Its no guess as to why. There are a gaggle of baitfish on the reef and everyone is trying to get them some.

This weekend we were hit with a powerful cold front but not so chilly temps. Lots of wind that will really stir things up and makes some welcome changes.. I expect the blackfin tuna bite and the sailfish bite will stay strong. More kingfish will pour on to the reef with the slightly cooler temps making for a fun. When the winds clock around out of the South and South East the opportunities for dolphin will increase.

The best days for deep sea this week look like they will be Tuesday – Saturday for the best weather. We don’t have to go out far especially Key West deep sea fishing as the fish are right up on the reef.
