Florida Keys Fishing Report: October 24th

This week we are looking at 20-30 knot winds from the East/Northeast through Sunday. After the wind lays down I am anticipating a push of sailfish & mahi mahi, not to mention a red hot snapper bite.  Last week we had a red hot bite Blackfin tuna, just off the reef in 150ft.
After catching the blackfins we returned the reef for some Yellowtail and Mutton Snapper fishing.
As cold fronts cool the waters in the north, we begin seeing dolphin(mahi mahi), sailfish, kingfish, blackfin tuna, & wahoo return on a southerly migration chasing baitfish such as ballyhoo, back to the warm water of the Florida Keys. On the southerly migrations the fish tend to stay closer to the western edge of the Gulf Stream & are in tight along the Florida Keys reef line. The dolphin (mahi mahi) we catch in the fall & winter months seem to be bigger & more aggressive.
The snapper and grouper fishing on the shallow patch reefs really turns on in the winter months.  You will experience various types fishing as we are targeting everything from Wahoo to Yellowtail Snapper, not to mention getting a shot at catching an Atlantic Sailfish.
Our fall/winter fishing styles and techniques are dictated by many different conditions – including: wind direction, water temperature, ocean currents, water color and most importantly, what fish are actually in season. Below are are Fall/Winter Rates
Full Day: $625.00
3/4 Day: $550.00
1/2 Day: $450.00
