Key Largo and The Upper Florida Keys

Key Largo - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fall fishing in the Florida Keys September 17, 2007

Fall fishing in the Florida Keys has been very good thus far and will improve as October nears. Tuna have been the most consistent action at the Islamorada Hump. Only a 15 mile ride from the dock in Key Largo, the Hump has provided terrific action on blackfin tuna up to 20 pounds. These footballs rip drag off of 20 pound spinning tackle and provide fantastic table fare.

We have not spent the time and fuel needed to chase dolphin the last month as the action has been inconsistent. Boats have been finding magical debris full of bait and dolphin and we have picked up a few trolling for tuna. October will be a different story as the big dolphin will be making their way back south into the Gulf Stream. As the waters farther north begin to cool, these warm water fish will seek more favorable waters back here in the Keys. October and November dolphin fishing is the best season for big fish, as they have been feeding all summer long growing to 30, 40, or 50 pounds.

Reef fishing has been consistent with yellowtail and mangrove snapper the last month. The larger grouper will also start to appear as the late summer turns into fall. Live bait fishing the deep ledges produces large grouper in the fall. King mackerel will also start to show up in big numbers on the deeper drops off the reef.

Fall is a great time to come to the Florida Keys. Airfare and lodging are a bargain and the fishing is outstanding. We are also running a special on Dauntless with 10% off and one day trip and 15% off any multiple day bookings. Take advantage of the slower tourist season and get in on the action by calling 1-877-DAUNTLESS or book online.
