Key West Deep Sea Fishing Forecast December 2012

The year end fishing in Key West is shaping up to be really great this year. Small Sailfish are showing up daily , even though a lot of mates are looking a little sheepish after missing the hook up more than once. Blackfin Tuna are coming to the surface on dark overcast days and for the Traditional Key West Sunset , I guess everything loves the beautiful sunsets here.

The reefs are loaded with bait and live Ballyhoo really liven up the bite on the surface and the bottom fishing for Grouper really picks up with those wiggly worms. The Gulfstream is slipping in and out and along the edge the water temperature has been 82. This is bringing a run of Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi) through with numerous catches in the 15 – 20 lb range.

The dolphin are  a nice treat for late fall and always put up an exciting fight. King Mackerel are starting to show up and over the next few weeks good quantities of big fish will be abundant in the offshore waters near Key West. The Bottom Fishing for Yellowtail and Mutton Snapper remains strong with the only caveat being having the wind and currents playing nice with each other, nobody wants to catch the anchor line.

Sharks! They are always about and this one was caught while fishing the bottom just on the edge of the reef.

Amberjack , also known as reef donkey, can spice up the day. We usually jig these and in the winter you never know if it will be an amberjack or a tuna when jigging the rocks and wrecks near Key West.

Good fishing and good catching!
