Florida Keys Fishing Report

Spring fishing here in the Florida Keys is really, really, really good.
I know I say every month, season, week, day is great but spring is by far the second best season to fish here.
The first of course is summer but we’ll save that article for that time.
So, back to the now, back to the spring fishing conditions.
We have spent most of the month inshore and at the bridges. The bite is pretty much non stop and the variety of fish here is anyone’s guess.
Jacks, yellowtail, mutton, mangroves, yellowjacks, schoolmasters, lanes, groupers, goliaths and sharks.

That’s the great thing about fishing inshore. A variety of fish, a short run to the bridge, calm waters and lots of dinner.
We are using live bait such as pilchards, Pinfish, shrimp and cut bait.
Any fresh cut bait is effective and bring in the fish.
Fresh chum or chunking works as well as frozen chum.

The migratory tarpon are here and getting ready to feed in full force. They are lying low under the bridges but you can bet as the water begins to warm up we will see them feeding and daisy chaining at the shorelines and in the channels.

In the coming weeks, the Mahi will be showing up offshore and grouper season reopens on May 1st.

We welcome the longer days, warmer weather and an abundance of fun and fishing. Hope to see you soon!
