Key West Fishing Report
Key West Fishing Charters with Capt. Tony murphy
Wishing you tight lines and fish boat-side!
The sailfish bite has come on strong with multiple releases reported by quite a few Captains. Anglers are still finding a mix bag of Bonita and Blackfin Tuna under frigate birds in approximately 200 to 300 feet to the west.
In addition, there have been a lot of Kingfish landed at the end of the bar with a good west tide. The large schools of dolphin will start to show up soon as more bait follows the gulf stream flow to our neck of the woods!
This time of year, we usually will see schools of the peanut size dolphin. As the summer rolls on by, we will start to get hook-ups on larger Mahi Mahi. The snapper action has been on fire in just 60 -100 feet of water outside of the reef-line. Caution should be heeded when venturing off-shore in windy conditions. As always we wish you tight lines and fish boat side!
