Fishing report from Walleyes Inc for the Florida Key's last update February 3, 2016

Reminder: The Ask the Captain and fishing forums are open for new members once again at 
The weather improved slightly this past week and there were a few charters that got into the Blackfin Tuna at the Islamorada hump.  While in the offshore a few even did some deep dropping and got into some nice Queen Snapper, a vivid red colored Snapper with long streaming wisps on their fins and great eating.
What great action and variety was had on the reef last week.  Sailfish catches were good most days, except for a few days when the reef water was off color, probably from wind blown bay water making its way out the three or four miles to the reef.  When the water goes off color that is when the Yellowtail Snapper bite is on as they feel more comfortable feeding in the smoky water.  On Monday Captain John Wolf with mate Captain Ed Yanetti released four Sails and also an African Pompano and  put a few Blackfin Tuna in the box.  At the West end of town Captain Brian Cone on his Conetiguous released a big African Pompano as well.  Captain Paul Johnson on the Reef Runner released one Sailfish and got into the King mackerel and released an African Pompano.  With a North wind blowing many backcountry guides fished the shallow reef patches.  Captain Juan Garcia had a banner day on his bay boat with Hogfish, Snapper and Porgy making a great dinner for his clients.
Gulf and Bay:
With the cooler water the Snapper bite suffered a little in the Gulf.   Captain John Gargan did manage to keep a limit of Mangrove Snapper for his fare. The Spanish mackerel action was great though.  Captain Lou Brubaker with just one angler caught “too many to count” and kept a few Mackerel for dinner and the smoker.  Captain Freddie out of Whale Harbor Marina got into the Spanish and had a Bluefish blitz gong on for over an hour until the tide changed.
Flats, Backcountry and Flamingo:
The Flamingo area did get a little beat up with the wind last week, but there were good catches of Snook and Redfish despite the less than favorable conditions.  Lots of guides ran out to Cape Sable and fished the beaches and the creeks with good results on Snook and Redfish.  There were some Trout and Snapper caught and there are lots of Sheepshead bending rods in the channels throughout the Flamingo area.  Sheepshead are great fighters and these fish run from a pound to five or six pounds.  The Sheepshead are  Shrimp eaters and are good eating too.
