Fabulous Flats Fishing in the Florida Keys

Capt. Dave Wiley
November 12, 2008
Key West - Saltwater Fishing Report

Stiff North East breezes and cooler temperatures (75 degrees) did not sway anglers Ron from Lakeland, FL and Carl from Poca, West Virginia.

We tucked up behind a large mangrove island in the Lower Keys and right off the bat we encountered schools of mudding bonefish with the occasional interuption from a cruising permit.

The duo caught a variety of sharks, jack crevalle, and barracudas. Later in the afternoon we tried a baby tarpon spot and saw some rolling, however, we were not succesful in getting one to eat. From there we went out to the Gulf and drifted the grass flats. We ended this awesome Keys day with both releasing a sea trout.

Key West Fishing Forecast:

More great fishing to come over the next few months. As the water cools big barracudas will move into the shallow flats and cruise the edges in packs. Sea trout, jack crevalle and cero mackeral will provide some great action for spin and fly rodders alike.

It's a great time to hit the flats of the Lower Florida Keys.

Target Species:

bonefish, tarpon, permit, redfish, sharks, barracuda, sea trout, jack crevalle, mackeral, snapper

More Fishing Reports:


We specialize in light tackle backcountry and flats fishing whether you prefer fly rod or conventional spinning rod. With 23 years of Lower Keys experience Capt. Dave and his guides are knowledgeable, professional and courteous and will work hard to put you on fish.
