If you have been following Key West weather it has not been the best for offshore fishing big waves and high winds. When it finally calmed down it looked like a great opportunity to do some deep sea fishing with two couples from the north. The ride past the reef was excellent no waves and great visibility in the water. As we starting fishing a lot of areas look great but no fish. After some time we finally found our golden spot and boated three nice dolphin and had some missed bites. Back at the dock is seemed we were the fortunate ones that had gotten any fish or bites!
Offshore Key West Fishing
About the Author: KW Fish Charter
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.
