Blackfin Tuna have been the highlight of Dec fishing in the Key West area. The Blackfins are holding on many of the area’s deeper wrecks. We have been live baiting these fish using both Ballyhoo and Pilchards. By throwing net fulls of live chum behind the boat we are able to draw the fish to the surface and create a feeding frenzy which leads to exciting top water strikes. Sailfish remain scarce, the weather continues to be unseasonably warm and most of the Sails remain North and East of us. More Wahoo are being caught as we move closer to the full moon. The Dec moon is always one of the best for Wahoo.
Along the reef edge; Cero, Yellowjack, Yellowtail, Grey and Mutton Snapper are biting with the occasional Black, Red or Gag Grouper thrown in.

As a result many of the fish we associate with cool wintertime temperatures have not arrived in our area or are less abundent. Sailfish for example remain very scarce in the Key West area. None the less, we are fishing for whats around and have been having success with Blackfin Tuna, Cero, Yellowtail and various Jack species.
