Fishing over the last several weeks has produced a number of outstanding catches ranging from Dolphin and Tuna to Mutton Snapper and Yellowtail. On days with the wind direction out of the SE the Dolphin fishing has been pretty good even though we are well off season for this species. On days with N
We are still waiting on cooler weather to bring water temperatures down and get our winter fishing kick started. In the meantime there are Blackfin Tuna and a few Dolphin outside of the reef edge, Amberjack on the wrecks and Yellowtail, Cero, Yellow jacks and assorted Mackerel on the reef.
After a disappointing start to the Dolphin season as noted in our last fishing report, the last several weeks has offered by far the most consistent Dolphin fishing of the entire season. As is always the case in fishing, no two days are ever the same and some days are better than others but we
We are now well into Dolphin season and the results have frankly been disappointing. Very few large fish have been caught, even during the mid May period when historically the bigger fish migrate through our area. The volume of schoolie fish, those between 4 and 8 pounds is also down. Not withstanding the tough fishing

This is the time of year when winter weary residents from the north take getaway vacations to warmer climates. For those with an interest in fishing, Key West is a great location to indulge this urge. Our fishing is close by with the result that little fishing time is wasted on long runs to distant
More cold and blustery weather this past week. Good thing the fish don't seem to mind. Patch and Reef fishing remains good. Plenty of King fish scattered around, also beginning to catch a few Blackfin Tuna. Sailfishing remains slow.
We've had relatively good fishing action during the Christmas week and beyond. Plenty of action on the patch reefs for Cero, Grey Snapper, Yellowtail and throwback Grouper. The deeper reef edge has yielded Jumbo sized Yellowtail and a good number of King Mackerel including a few over 30 lbs. Sailfish are relatively scarce, but we
