Florida Keys Fishing Report

It has gotten quiet here in the Keys with regard to charter fishing customers.  There are a fair number of trailer boats coming down from South Florida, and private anglers are catching a few Dolphin.  The Mahi-Mahi seem to be about 12 to 20 miles offshore on any given day.  The game plan for most captains is to run South looking for birds and then perhaps be in the zone.  Small sea birds working low to the water and circling and darting is the give away that offshore anglers look for.  There has been little substantial grass and not much debris lately, so the Dolphin will often be found under birds. 
Uncomfortable hot temperatures have stopped many fishermen from anchoring on the reef in day light.  The Snapper will cooperate early in the morning before the sun gets up high, and night time fishing is the choice of many who want Snapper.  The Yellowtail and Mangrove Snapper can provide a good day of fishing, but the “pre-spawn glut’ of the spring and summer months is over.  Many captains are fishing deeper these days, drifting live or dead baits over deep water areas of hard or live bottom.  This activity produces King Mackerel, Mutton Snapper, Grouper and sometimes a Wahoo.  Use a long leader with an eight ounce lead to keep the bait just a few feet off of the bottom.
Gulf and Bay:
Captain Lou Brubaker was out on a Gulf wreck this past week and said the Permit were roaming all around the structure.  Casting with jigs or Gulp Shrimp, the guys caught Jacks, Trout and got pounded by Goliath Grouper.  Dropping a live Jack Crevalle down to the bottom on 30# conventional gear proved to be the way to get “pounded” by even larger Goliath Grouper.   Only two out of five G.G.’s hooked were brought to the surface.  Remember the G.G.’s are totally protected and it is not legal to pick up the fish even for a photo.  Let him lay on his side in the water for the picture!  And, oh yeah, the Permit would not even look at a crab under a float…
Flats, Backcountry and Flamingo:
It is real peaceful and even lonely in the Flamingo area these days.  Since the kids went back to school it seems no one it taking a vacation to the Keys!  Capt. Rich Burson took a ride out to Cape Sable this past week.  Rich said they caught a Snook along the beach and then went to fish the East Cape Canal.  There was plenty of Mullet pushing out of the canal and on the tide change the Tarpon were busting the baits pretty good.  One of Rich’s anglers tossed a surface chugger across the canal and on about the 40th cast had a Tarpon inhale it.  Three jumps later the plug came sailing back over the boat….end of story.  Just to do some rod bending they stopped at middle ground and found some Trout that eat jigs eagerly.
