Get Ready To Fish Key West!

Greetings from Key West! 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!

The summer weather is here. Next week will have variable winds in the 3 to 15 mph range. Monday evening through Tuesday night are calling for double digit winds. Wednesday through the weekend the forecast is calling for single digit wind. 

Good news, the forecast is calling for sun, and no showers through the week.
Feels like early summer. Low to moderate winds early in the week and low winds towards the weekend.

The weather seems to have finally made a change toward normalcy with high 80’s most of the next 2 weeks. The winds will still be averaging 3 to 15 mph with a few days having possible single digit wind, but that is good for this time of year.

Our captains have been reporting groups of Tarpon migrating through the lower keys. Bone fish have been a pleasant surprise with many fish being caught as the water temps rise. Look to find most Bones active on a tide change later in the day when the suns had a chance to warm the shallows up.

You may not know but the Permit have still been quite slow this time of year. In saying this, there have been some permit around, but as always they can be picky and elusive. The large Cudas are still out on the flats even with the warming water. These guys are a great challenge on fly or light spin gear. Remember to get the fly moving fast to get their attention.

Wishing everyone tight lines and fish boatside!

For the offshore fishing in Key West, there have been a great variety of fish being caught. 

Snapper and grouper have been the normal culprits on the bottom. Also, there have been a mix of Blackfin Tuna, with some Kings, Barracudas, Bonita, and some Mahi also in the mix.

As always wishing you tight lines and fish boat side from Capt. Tony Murphy!
