Busy Fishing Season with Lots of Opportunities

January and February 2019 has been busy.  We had some rough seas then very calm seas – seemed like every other day.  But that’s the good thing about fishing in Key West, Florida.  When the winds are high, the backcountry offers much protection and we can still get out fishing catching sharks, snappers, and barracudas.  For the ones that wanted to go offshore we continued the good tuna bite in the afternoon.  We also had a decent mahi bite that kept up even now as February came to an end.  The water and air temperature has improved dramatically and we are seeing 80 degree days with light winds – making it perfect to get out and enjoy the waters off Key West.

About the Author:

Growing up, I always looked forward to all water activities - whether it was swimming, scuba diving or fishing. I visited Key West and was mesmerized by the warm weather, laid-back lifestyle and the beautiful waters - where the ocean meets the gulf. I packed-up my things and moved to the southernmost city. At first, I held multiple jobs got on the water as often as I could. I was fortunate to have some local watermen take me under their wings and show me the art and science of offshore fishing. I quickly progressed from deck hand, to mate, to captain. It was a great experience and I still help them out to this day. Nowadays, I still love fishing and spend most of my free time fishing. I will go out and try different techniques or try to find new spots. In the slower season, I spend much of my time under the water studying the fish behavior and how they are affected with the tides and moon phase. As I progress as a captain and angler, I always try to push myself into more challenging situations.
