Winter Flats Fishing Report For The Lower Florida Keys

Capt. Scott Yetter
November 22, 2013
Big Pine Key - Saltwater Fishing Report

It is that time of year again... Days are getting shorter, nights are getting cooler, the mosquitoes are gone and it is snowing in the northern part of the country..

Receiving inquiries daily from anglers wanting to know what fishing conditions will be like for their up coming winter vacation.

This is a transition time of year. Cold fronts can lower water tempertatures. If water temperatures are below 70 we target redfish, barracuda, sharks, cobia, lady fish, sea trout, jack crevalle, etc.. There is always something fun to fish for here in the lower Florida Keys.

There has always been some redfish here in the lower keys in some spots... Lately we have been finding a lot of redfish in some spots and some redfish in a lot of spots.

Cooler water temperatures bring lots of big cudas on to the shallow flats to warm up. I love fishing barracuda.. These fish are a blast! Lighting fast, violent strikes, wild jumps and blistering runs.. If you have a heart condition, you may want to stick with something tamer...They can out jump a tarpon and out swim a bonefish.. Top speeds are 25 mph..

Big Pine Key Fishing Forecast:

Now is the time to start thinking about booking for next tarpon season. I usualy start booking up after the holidays and a few major blizzards up north..

Target Species:

tarpon, permit, bonefish, barracuda, redfish, sharks

More Fishing Reports:
