Well after a great Sept. we are gearing up for an awesome Sail fish season and let me tell you that they are already showing up due to massive schools of migrating bait fish. Bally Hoo are considered the bait of choice when fishing the Keys for Sail fish. Giant schools of Hoos are balled up throughout the entire edge of the reef from Key West up to Key Largo. This can only mean that Kings, Sails, Tuna and Wahoo are inhabiting these areas too. On a recent trip we caught a couple of Sails and had plenty of Kingfish activity as well as Cerro Mackerel action. Cigar minnows and pilchards have made a good showing also and we are searching for the sardine balls to show up any day now. When we find these solid spheres of sardines you never know what youll find swimming around them. Dolphin fishing offshore has been decent of late also with some fish being caught up to 30 pounds and better. Wreck fishing has improved out deep. Amberjacks and Mutton snapper have been steady while the grouper bite has been alright inside on the edge of the reef. Yellow tail snapper have been biting well from 60 to 100 feet as long as the current has been rolling to the North East. The out look thru the rest of October looks great right into November.
Inshore the Snook bite has been banor in the late afternoons and evenings. We are live bait fishing with pinfish and pilchards and finding plenty of fish around 6 to 12 pounds. Live mullet have produced
some very nice snook and also some good Tarpon around the bridges and channels. Sea Trout are biting out back in the Glades and the red fish bite has been out of control during the first of the incoming tides working Gulp Shrimp on jig heads around the run offs where the flats and channels meet. We are looking at some fronts to start showing up by this week end and that should only bring more bait schools our way.
You can book your trip right online under online booking. Hope to see you soon.
