August 20 Fishing report

d3.jpg

Its been a little bouncy and slow offshore lately, so I've been fishing the reef and inshore.  The channels have been producing some nice mutton, mangrove, dog and yellowtail snappers, groupers and sharks on shorter trips.  Offshore fishing has been slow with few dolphin around.  There have been some fish closer in and on the reef in the mornings, but overall it's been better to do something else.  Most of my charters have opted to go jump in the water after fishing for a while, either just to cool off or try to catch a lobster.  Either way it makes the heat of day bearable!  If you'd like to book a trip, give me a call at 305-923-6977.  Thanks, Capt Taylor

Mid July fishing report

We've had good weather and good fishing this past week in Key West.  There seem to be more dolphin offshore, and even had luck on the afternoon trips with them.  The reef continues to be excellent with the mangrove snapper spawn, big jacks, and plenty of sharks.  If you're looking to get out this week, I have a few spots open.      305-923-6977                  Thanks, Capt. Taylor

Mixed bag 3/4 day

We had a great 6 hour trip yesterday and ended up catching a box full of great eating fish!  2 keeper dolphin, a blackfin tuna, cero mackerel, 8 big mangrove snappers, a mutton snapper, yellow jack, and a few bonitos & barracudas!  It was a little bouncy, maybe 2 ft, but it was worth it to catch a variety of fish!  If you're looking to get out I can be reached at 305-923-6977.  Thanks, Capt Taylor

Key West fishing report 7/1

I had a bunch of good trips this past week both offshore and inshore.  We had nice weather all week, and caught some nice fish on each trip.  Offshore the dolphin fishing has been steady, but the schools have been spread out.  Most of the fish are small, but there have been a few bigger fish and billfish mixed in. There are weedlines from the reef to 30 miles out, some patches bigger than football fields.  The snapper spawn is starting to happen, and they should be gathering up on the reef with the full moon.  There are still some nice sized snappers in the harbor, with some tarpon schools around also.  The reef has been tough for yellowtails with no current, so I've mostly been fishing the channels where we have tide movement.  The weather and sea conditions have been fantastic!  If you are looking to get out, I can be reached at 305-923-6977.  Thanks! Capt. Taylor

End of March fishing report

The wind has returned to Key West and a lot of boats are stuck to the dock.  People are always hesitant when we have these gusty conditions.  It should get much better by Friday this week.  The sailfish have been consistent when we can get out there.  I did a tv show shoot with Capt. Mike Weinhoffer and Capt. Rob Fordyce with "The Seahunter" Monday afternoon.  The guys had a nice afternoon going 3 for 5 on sails. The sharks and bonitas ate up a bunch of baits also.  Inshore we have had good action with snappers, groupers, and a few hammerhead sharks.  The tarpon bite is also good when the wind comes down.  If you would like to get out on the water, I have some spots available.  Call me at 305-923-6977  Thanks, Capt Taylor Williams
