While the world watches the events in Arizona, we prepare for our own version of world-class competition right here in Paradise!

The new year brings some brisk cold fronts with temps dropping into the low 70’s (Burrr) and a change in fishing patterns that bring a perfect storm of fishing.

The off-shore catch pretty much stays the same all year around thanks to our old friend the Gulfstream that brings warm water up from Mexico along with Dolphin, Wahoo, and Tuna.  We count on that…

But, the drop in inshore water temps heats up the deep wreck fishing making hungry Grouper, Sharks, and Amberjacks easy prey.  The reef is teeming with Snapper, Macheral, and large Barracuda.  Of course in our own backyard called the Key West harbor Tarpon, Permit, and Crevalle sit under our boats!  We catch 100 pound fish without even leaving the dock.  However, this doesn’t make our Dockmaster too pleased

Yes, there are other fishing spots that catch more of certain species than we do in Key West, but there is nowhere in the world with the variety of sportfishing species available all year than Key West.  Bold statement?  Check the IGFA World Record Books and see that more records have been set in our neighborhood than anywhere else in the world. 

Give us a call.

We are usually happy just to be coming out of the “off season” and into the next 8 months of working steady and running charters, but this year seems to be that much more optimistic. Two critical elements have shown positive signs of improvement over the past few …

Key West Thanksgiving. Fish Advisor Key West November 2014

by CaptainCraig November 28, 2014

          Thanksgiving marks the “get ready…” lead up to our season.  By Christmas, we are at “get set…” and the first of the year, well, it is “GO!”  We get wonderful charters that bear out the changing weather and changing fishing conditions only to be richly rewarded with Grouper on the reef, Wahoo and Tuna offshore, and plenty of Sharks returning to …

November Fishing Report. Fish Advisor Key West. Only the Weather Has Changed :)

by CaptainCraig November 23, 2014

Changing weather and the approach of the holidays always brings a change to our business.  We know that with the day after Christmas, we won’t get a break until late July or August.  It isn’t as most people think that the fishing gets better; we just get more folks here to catch them! It is simple math.  More anglers in town, more boats are booked, …

October… The Best Fishing Ever! FishAdvisorKeyWest.com

by CaptainCraig November 3, 2014

Actually, it is not that much of an exaggeration.  Usually, October is a very “transient” month.  We move from mostly fishing offshore in several hundred feet of water for Dolphin (mahi) Tuna, and Wahoo to more reef fishing.  Grouper, Snapper and trophy Barracuda are our staples of the reef and big Amberjack and Shark are found on the deep wrecks.  We also fish a few …

Outside My Window…

by CaptainCraig October 5, 2014

Nope, not a damn thing to do with fishing. But, this is my view in the evening when I return home, tired, burned, cramped, and with low blood sugar with the feeling of accomplishment of catching my anglers fish and probably the memories of a lifetime. Was it worth it? I think so… But…  Here is a pic for all those experts that tell you …
