Here is your Key West fishing report for June 2, 2018.
FLATS FISHING IN KEY WEST
This May has been one of the toughest, weather-wise, in years.The tarpon are here but consistently inconsistent. We have started seeing nice solid strings on the ocean side beaches and inlets. At first light, happy fish are ready to eat a well presented fly. As the light gets higher these ocean fish get wary. Try Longer Leaders and smaller, lighter flies to fool these fish. Hint; never hesitate to use a worm fly this time of year. The Palolo worm hatch is on the horizon! Keep your ears open in the afternoons and be ready to head out at a moments notice. Bonefish have been consistent at certain tides up to the east. Find good current on a falling tide. Sandy flats should produce some good shots at the bones.
OFFSHORE FISHING IN KEY WEST
Offshore there has been a very good sailfish bite happening. They love the rough water. The guys flying kites have been whacking them. Don't think that small chin-weighted and skipping ballyhoo won't get a strike though! Get down here and book a trip with the Saltwater Angler. I wish you tight lines and fish boat side from the staff at Capt. Tony Murphy Fishing Charters!
