KSAT Weather: Get Ready For Some Gray, Clouds Are Here To Stay

 

Key Largo to Key West

Backcountry

Hello everyone! Great catches this past week in the Florida Keys backcountry. The bite wasn’t on fire but must of us put together some great action. Snook, redfish and the occasional tarpon can still be found around the mainland and island shorelines from Key Largo to Flamingo. Gold spoons, jerk baits rigged weedless and your favorite shallow water artificial baits will get the bites. The mullet muds throughout the bay are holding a few trout and ladyfish, the trick is to find the mud that has the fish. Lots of baby tarpon can be seen rolling in the Snake Bight channel with some snook and few redfish in the runoffs. The middle grounds area is holding trout and the regular rod benders. The grassy bottom by First National Bank is also holding some nice trout with really decent snappers, as well.

The snook bite along the beach and mainland shorelines from East Cape north has been good, pinfish and pilchards are top baits but DOA baits or Berkley Gulps will get the job done.

The action continues out on the Gulf wrecks with all kinds of action going on. Some cobia, permit, sharks, snappers, pompano, goliath groupers and many more have been showing up. It’s a good idea to have multiple rods rigged and ready for different species. There is no time to be rigging when a group of cobia or permit shows up, acting fast will definitely improve your odds.

The bigger grey snappers are showing up around the grassy areas near the Park boundaries. White pompano jigs and DOA jerk baits on a jig have been getting great action from big trout, ladyfish and snappers. Chumming and free lining chunks of fresh ballyhoo, ladyfish or pinfish have been catching the bigger snappers.

The tarpon bite is winding down on the daytime hours while fishing the local bridges and channels. If you put the time on it you most likely will catch one. Mullet, ladyfish and crabs have all been getting the bites. We have also been catching some nice keeper grouper on the channels with big grey snappers as well, chunk ladyfish and mullet have been working great. Concentrate on the early mornings and late afternoon for the best bonefishing action. Tailing fish can be found on the oceanside flats with some permit cruising the deeper edges. Small crabs work great for both species. Winds are forecasted to be nice for the weekend with a good chance of scattered showers. Keep your rain gear on board along with some good bug repellent and plenty of water and get out on the Florida Keys backcountry for some great fishing!

Upper Keys

Hello everyone, and welcome back to this week’s report. Fishing this week has been good, and it doesn’t hurt that the weather has been beautiful too. The offshore fishing this week has been decent with some mahi scattered around. Nothing too crazy but some decent fish have been around all week. The hump has been active, with some bigger football sized tuna, as well as plenty of amberjacks and sharks. Not too much to report from the swordfish ledge, but hopefully that will pick up soon.

The reef and wreck fishing has been holding it’s own this week as the current has been light, but is still producing some nice fish. The yellowtail bite off the reef remains pretty good despite the warmer water temperatures, but as these guys continue to spawn they should stay happy as long as there is current. Some decent fishing is still around and should only get better as we head toward the moon. We could definitely use some wind, but it doesn’t look like there’s too much in our near future. That’s it for this week, check back with us next week to see what’s biting here in our beautiful piece of paradise.

Lower Keys

Welcome back to the Lower Keys Fishing Forecast, overall the fishing and the weather have been good down here. The weather for this weekend looks nice, with 10 mph winds out of the east and a small chance of rain. There have been a lot of dolphin offshore, from way out deep to in shallow close to the reef. The large majority of fish are all schoolies, but there are some larger mahi to be found, you just have to put some time in looking. There have also been some skip jack tunas out deep, usually there is pod of small black birds that are giving them away. They like to eat little squids trolled way back in your spread.

The backcountry fishing has been good lately too. The tarpon really like this consistently warm weather and light winds. The fish have been hanging in the channels have been eating live pinfish and crabs really well. However, on the flats, even when it isn’t raining, we continue to have a lot of cloud coverage down here around Key West and that can make sight casting fish rather difficult. Looking for slow rolling fish and fishing for them on sandy bottom can be useful when sight casting fish in low light situations.
