After Irma Florida Keys Fishing

Yellowtail Snappers after hurricane
After Irma Yellowtail Snappers. These Fish were caught fishing with Capt. Steven Lamp at Dream Catcher Charters out of Key West Florida on Sunday the 24th just 14 days after Hurricane Irma. See Report

September 25th 2017 – 15 days since Hurricane Irma kicked our buts here in the Florida Keys and gave us front row seats to the bad part of living in the tropics. Since hurricane Irma hit us the transformation from disaster to ready for business has been incredible. With the outpouring of support in the form of on site labor, supply, and donations the people of the islands have rallied and gotten back on their feet again. I am sure the end result will be a stronger more resilient set of islands and people in the future.

A Large Portion Of The Florida Keys and Key West Are Now Open For Business 

The Rebound

It is my pleasure to announce that the rebound of the Florida Keys and Key West is well under way and in most places you really cannot tell there was much of an event. We are now at a point and able to have tourists back to go fishing or whatever it is that you like to do here in our islands. The Florida Keys fishing charters we work with in the Islamorada area and Key Largo are ready to take you out and bend some rods. As long as you don’t mind our dust while we make things perfect in the background.

In Key West fishing the charter boats are ready as well. I can speak for Dream Catcher Charters that we are 100% operational today Monday the 26th. We have already been out to scout and what we are seeing is the normal.. Great fishing and beautiful waters..

Some of the marinas where we the captains keep their charter boats were pretty banged up by Hurricane Irma. That does not mean your favorite charter boat is not able to run. Drop us a line and see what and who is able to get you on the water..

Hotels have accommodations available and ready to provide the services you are used to here in the Florida Keys.

The Florida Keys Fishing

From my experience in previous hard core hurricanes The fishing after them is amazing. First off there arent many people out there making it even nicer. The offshore fishing holds great opportunities with the debri holding nice sized dolphin and some wahoo. The reef fishing is on fire after the water clears up a bit. Yesterday we put down our chain saws and went out to the reef and deep sea fishing blue waters on board our 36ft Yellowfin. Caught some nice 4+ lb yellowtails in less than 30 minutes of fishing See my report here Key West Reef Fishing Sunday Sept 25th. Whats better than the reef with great yellowtail snapper fishing and grouper. The flats fishing and backcountry fishing takes a little longer to get back on its game with the tides washing the grasses and the bait making their way back for fish to feed on. One thing is sure. The fish will be hungry and slightly disoriented making them easy game. We have scouts on the water today here out of Key West checking things out for a report.

How Can You Help?

Call us. Set up a trip. A quick weekend getaway or a week to enjoy the solitude of the Florida Keys. We are still here and very capable of handling your vacation needs. With all that has been terrible in the Caribbean The Florida Keys have faired very well in comparison to some not so fortunate other tropical destinations. Thats how you can help.
