Lake Atlantic

It has been calm this last week. Every angler waits for days like these. No white knuckling, bumps, spray, just a wide-open throttle to get to the fishing grounds. As always, the bad that comes along with the good. With no wind it does get a bit steamy here in Key West. Being on the water actually makes it a bit cooler than being on land!

We have been seeing 50-90 foot of visibility on the Atlantic side and 15-20 foot of visibility on the gulf side. Good vis and good current haven’t affected the bite in a negative way. The snappers have been popping with some really nice flag yellowtails in the deeper part of the bars and reefs. The occasional mutton and gray snapper are being pulled up from the mid column as well.

Offshore has been hit and miss one day tunas are popping the other mahi. But 80 percent of the time finding a floater or birds has been the key to success.

With the newer regulations we have had blue line tiles and snowy groupers close again for the season until May 1. So deep dropping other than sword fishing is pretty much done till May.

Labor Day saw business pick back up and we only have 2 days open till the 14th so if you are coming down, your best bet is to book your fishing trip now!

Looking forward to fishing with you.

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.
