Wow! That is about the best way to describe the fishing in Key West right now. Sailfish have been plentiful , along with Blackfin Tuna, Bonitas (I don’t care what they taste like – they fight like crazy) Amber Jacks on the wrecks, small dolphin and now today Large Dolphin are starting to move into our waters. All of these fish continue in the near Gulfstream waters and as conditions last make for fantastic charters. The kite gets the Sails one day and then they bite trolled Ballyhoo the next. Tuna really like Pilchards and the Bonita and Dolphin will eat everything. Truly a great time for charters fishing in Key West!
Fishing with new friends JR and Ginger and old friend Kevin (Foggy) on a very special day catching Wahoo and Tuna. Calm seas and a gentle breeze made for an exceptional day on the water. Mate Steven jigged up Tunas from 350′ and put on a great display of angling. JR got his first blue water fish in Key West with a reel screaming Wahoo. JR was so enthused by that catch he decided to go for a pallet later in the day. I hope he wasn’t upset when I declined to boat his catch.
