Deep Sea Fishing Report
Coming Alive is the best way I can describe our deep sea fishing off of Key West in The sping. Kingfish are on the reef close by and so are the Sailfish. The Dolphin are comming l around on those warmer days, nice thing is they are all good size. Our deep sea fishing guides are awesome in knowing exactly where to go day in and day out to get the bite for their people. Trolling and live baiting are the best methods to make it happen for anglers on the big boats that head out there.

Deep sea fishing Key West on board one of Key West's finest charter boats is easy to get reservations. We offer private charters and split charters to get you out there having fun. Call our reservations office at 1-888-362-3474 to reserve your Key West deep sea fishing charter.

Flats And Backcountry Fishing Report
Flats fishing in Key West and backcountry fishing can be held in high regard during the early spring. With fluctuating Water temps and the occasional cold front moving through things will be red hot in he Key West Backcountry.

Sight Fishing for Permit is always one of my favorites in the spring as the fish come right up and tail for you, even if it is a bit breezy these fish can be a great hunt on the flats on light tackle and fly fishing gear. Along with the Permit I always keep an eye out for the Cobia and large Jack Crevales that will be cruising with the Sting Rays and Sharks. Another great opportunity in the spring is the Barracuda fishing on the flats, these guys come right up in the shallows and make themselves a very sporting target on fly fishing or light tackle fishing gear. I can pole all day long without even breaking a sweat in the spring as the temps are the best of the year.

Key West Backcountry fishing lends itself to everyone's fun and enjoyment in the spring. With an explosion in our Trout populations, and the numbers of Pompano that have shown up this winter we have great fishing for the customer who likes to bend rods catching quality fish all day long. Our backcountry fishing charters have become our most popular trip with people coming back year after year to spend quality time catching fish one right after another.

Tarpon Season is in full swing.. Get out there soon to enjoy some killer tarpon fishing. Book your fishing guide now.

Wreck and Reef Fishing
The wrecks and reefs are ALIVE!!! Come to Key West this month for some killer wreck and reef fishing. Live baiting, Kite fishing, slow trolling live baits, or bottom fishing.It's all good from November right on through the rest of winter and into the spring.

The bottom fishing in March April offers our anglers fantastic Yellowtail Snapper fishing, along with black and red groupers on the shallow reefs. The surprise of the occasional African Pompano can be a fun treat too. In the deeper reefs the American Red Snapper Bite has been crazy with a small shark problem, fortunately the American reds have been to large for the sharks to get a bite on. These fish make incredible table fare .A bit farther out We have been landing some very nice sized Black Grouper and Yellow Eyed Snappers making a variety for species.

On the surface the palagics are going ballistic. Sailfish continue to keep showing slowing a bit with the lack of consistent cold fronts. The Tunas have slowed a bit and spread out.

On the Gulf Wrecks be ready for some Cobia Action. Drop baits back and fight fish that weigh in excess of 60 lbs and have a ball. Also on the Gulf wrecks the grouper fishing can be great if the anglers are on their game, Goliath groupers prevail on most wrecks and try to make a snack out of your grouper dinner.
