Plug Fishing Florida Keys

Do you want to have a ball catching trophy fish without any bait? Cast after cast of either a strike, a take or a fish on? Then try this little fun thing to do and see where it takes you fishing here in the Florida Keys. Everyone likes to catch fish, this is a way they can feel like a pro.

Summer means lazy barracudas laid up on the surface near towers, wrecks, large patch reefs and structure in general. Big Fun for a new artificial fisher person.

Here in the Florida Keys at Dream Catcher Charters we started using the MirroLure Lumo series for our barracuda fishing. the one I like has the blue back and the flash on the side.. See phot of slob barracuda caught with it. You might think, wow what a tiny little plug for such a beast.. (42 inch barracuda).

There is a secret.. Rig this with a 6 inch trace of number 2 wire.  The #2 wire allows the plug to do its thing just under the surface and looks AMAZING>. (just ask mr. cuda). You can find the wire anywhere any tackle shop.. I get mine at West Marine. I use my lightest spinning rod which is a Rick Berry Key Largo Rods 8 – 12 lb test flats fishing rod with A Daiwa Certate spinning reel and Daiwa Armor braid. Between my braid and the wire I have a trace 2.5ft section of 20 lb Calcuta fluorocarbon.

I have many clients that book me just to catch barracudas.. We have a ball. on the flats on the patch reefs and in the ocean no matter, its fun.. Give Us a call 1-305-292-7212 For more information or to make a reservation..
