Lots of north wind with cooler weather is bringing the water temperatures down in the Key West area and establishing the conditions for good winter fishing. Ballyhoo are congregating in huge schools along the reef and attracting preditors of all kinds. We have been catching Sailfish, Dolphin, Blackfin Tuna, Cero, and Mutton & Yellowtail Snapper all in 20′ – 30′ of water on the shallowest reefs where they are feeding on the plentiful Ballyhoo. It’s quite a sight to see a giant school of Ballyhoo errupt out of the water with countless Frigate birds and sportfish in hot persuit.
