Dog days of August

Capt. Paul Ollariu
July 30, 2008
Key West - Saltwater Fishing Report

August is always a great month for anglers who want to get away to Key West and enjoy the
quiet solitude of the island in the summer time. Guest house rooms and some hotels are cheap.
The restaurants are not full of people and there is no waiting to get a cool drink at your favorite bar
after a day on the water.
The bonefish are in 'pack mode" on the warm shallow flats. It makes it easier to entice them
with a delicious fresh crab because they are h-u-n-g-r-y!
If we get a little wind the permit are not as easily spooked and we all love fish that are paying
more attention to their presented meal than they are to you and the boat. The Gulf of Mexico side
of Key West is great this month for large permit on a falling tide.
The mangroves hold Reds, smaller Snook, Jacks and bigger than life Barracudas looking to
eat everything else.
I am doing a lot of live baiting with pinfish or crabs on my Tarpon trips at night They seem to
be just a bit more inclined to demonstrate their aerobatic techniques this time of year with a fesh
pinfish in their mouth but that could just be my opinion because I love to see those silver kings
I have great deals on fishing trips in August so call me and we can swap fish tales.

Tight lines and great sunsets!

Professional guide in Key West for 20 years. Like most quides, Captain Paul Ollariu is a great fisherman. He grew up in Florida and has been fishing since he was nine years old.

The look of anticipation as they bring the fish to the boat is something that stays in his
