Getting Back to Fishing

The end of July and into August fishing was good! Then, as you all know, hurricane Irma hit the keys!  Key West was very fortunate to have been spared from the worst damage, but the destruction between mile markers 10-30 was much worse.  We have all been doing our part to restore our community back to what it was, and dare I say, better!

So back to the fishing.  I snuck out on the flats in the beginning of October and had 3 quality shots at permit and another couple shots at bonefish!  I have heard the offshore fishing has been good lots of debris with dolphin and the occasional wahoo. As for the reef I hear the snapper are hungry!  Let’s get back to normal and start fishing Key West once again!

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.
