Blue Skies & Cool Temps

Happy Holidays!!!!!!! We are having a great time here in Key West catching a variety of wintertime fish. With the drop in the water temperature the Big Barracudas are flooding the flats just waiting to take well placed Tube Lure. Barracuda fishing in the shallow water is some of the most exciting fishing there is. For those of you that have caught them offshore on heavy tackle you might be wondering what the attraction is. But once you sight fish for them in the backcountry and watch them go from zero to sixty and explode on your lure right in front of the boat you are going to have a new found respect for them. On light tackle the fight is equally impressive: blistering runs and spectacular jumps are just part of their repertoire.
This is also the time of year that the Backcountry Basins fill up with all types of fish. We have been catching SeaTrout. Jack Crevalles, Ladyfish, Bluefish, and Big Blacktip Sharks. This fishing is fun for all skill levels and it can be nonstop action.
