Key West Fishing Report for January 7, 2019

Hello from Capt. Tony Murphy with Key Limey Charters.  Thank you for your interest in my Key West Fishing Report and Fishing in Key West and the lower keys!

Key West Flats Fishing

January is here in the Florida keys along with the colder winter air and colder water temperatures. With these colder temperatures some of the more toothy critters will be more dominate on the flats.

Finally, Cudas have begun to lay up in the current on flats trying to find an easy meal, giving angler a great opportunity to try and catch one. Most noteworthy, they are best caught using something flashy and moving fast with a bait-fish profile.

Something else to mention, some of our guides have been catching Speckled Sea Trout in the basins as the cooler water moves in using shrimp and jigs, and clouser styled flies on the bottom.

You may want to keep and eye out for Jack Crevalle pushing across the flats or hanging out with stingrays as they search for crabs and other crustaceans in the sand. There are still a few Juvenile Tarpon hanging around the mangroves and channels. These acrobatic babies are beyond fun and ready to crush a fly.

Surprisingly, we are still seeing quite a few good sized Bonefish and Permit around, however the quick-changing climate and weather this time of year will affect that on a day to day basis.

Offshore Fishing Charters in Key West

And finally, here is Capt. Tony Murphy's offshore fishing report for Key West. Tuna and Wahoo have shown up. With the full moon the Wahoo bite has been excellent with many boats catching multiple fish. The early morning and late afternoon bites have been the most productive with some great fish being caught.

Noteworthy, the Reef bite has been fairly decent. There are plenty of Red Grouper and Mutton Snapper around. The Yellowtail snapper bite has been great as usual, and makes for great table fare.
