Key West Fishing Report April 6

Hi folks, Catching my breath here. Its been busy.. Holy smokes. Here at Dream Catcher Charters we have been running non stop with all guns loaded and having a great time with our fishing clients catching all sorts of fish.

Dream Catcher Charters Tarpon Fishing

Tarpon season is in full swing. Here at Dream Catcher Charters our live bait tarpon fishing trips have been very rewarding.Anglers can expect to see hundreds of fish at any given time of the day. Fly fishing for tarpon is just now taking off with fish laid up in the backcountry and along the edges out in the Marquesas Keys.

As everyone knows, we specialize in backcountry fishing, flats fishing, wreck and reef fishing. Its all been EPIC Even with the grouper being out of season. The wreck and reef fishing trips that we have been running have turned up some incredible edible catches of NICE mutton snappers and yellowtail snappers. The grouper are everywhere out there so the fishing is non stop.

Permit fishing Key West

April means Permit in Key West

On the wrecks permit and big barracudas have been the “fun factor” for sport fishing. We always release our permit that we catch so they can fight again but a good sized legal cobia hits the ice and later the dinner plate.. Yumm..

For the fun days on the water we have been having a ball with the “family fun trips” where we take a group of 6 or less out for a fun day on the water catching all sorts of fish, seeing dolphins, snorkeling and just “having fun”…. This is a perfect time of the year for this trip as the water temps are up and the clarity is amazing, that, along with epic fishing conditions we have a blast all the way around..
