YES the fishing is good, Yes its ok to come down.. That is IF you can get out of whatever snowy tundra you are coming here from.¬†February is the PERFECT time to escape the cold and come to the Florida Keys for some rock in’ fishing. Get your fish on all month long with some incredible species that come to the Florida Keys for the winter.


Fishing with Capt. Matt Bellinger of Bamboo Charters this angler caught a nice Snook.

Inshore Backcountry and Flats
There have been some great stories coming from Islamorada to Key West with catches of Snappers, Mackerel, Trout, redfish and a host of other fun species. The Flats fishing has produced some incredible opportunities for our shallow water species such as Snook and redfish. There is also some talk of bonefish around as well mainly in the upper Florida Keys . Dream Catcher Charters of Key West is reporting some tarpon and permit on the flats – Check out thier Key West fishing report to learn more. Our water temps are holding nicely and making this a PRIME Florida Keys fishing opportunity in the shallows all up and down the Florida Keys.

Offshore Deep Sea and Reef.
I hate to say this but our weather is just too good for a kick but solid great fishing report for the deep sea waters and reef line. With super clean water the reef bite has rolled off a bit. Still some nice catches of Yellowtails and a few muttons being reported but just not a crazy bite like last week during the fronts. Wahoo fishing near Key West has been off the rails up to mid week last week with some nice fish taken up to 50lb.

Florida Keys Deep Sea fishing charters are a great way to go with groups of 6 or less that want to troll and catch fish. Call 1-305-292-7212 for booking information on the hottest deep sea boats in the Florida Keys and Key West.
