Hot in July!

//Hot in July!

Hot in July!

July has been hot!  Temperatures have been up and the fishing has been good here in Key West.  The wrecks offshore of Key West have been producing amberjacks, yelloweye snapper, vermilion snapper, mutton snapper, and some quality grouper!  The deep sea bite was good for the pelagic fish like dolphin and wahoo earlier in the month.

I have been doing a lot of half day trips in the morning to beat the afternoon heat and it has been action packed.  For those who are looking for something bigger to fight the sharks have been around stealing some of the fish off the wrecks we have hooked up, so if you want an extra fight, the sharks are here!

If you are looking for quality eating fish the golden tile fish and grey line tiles have been biting really well and these fish are excellent table fare.

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.
