Key West Fishing Guides Gearing up for Another Great Season

Things may be slowing down up north, where temperatures are beginning to dip below freezing, but Key West fishing is just starting to heat up with new trips, budget-friendly discounts, and as always, the most professional guides in the area.

Online PR News – 28-November-2009 – – The winter fishing season is off to a great start, with Key West fishing guides and their guests catching their limits in a half day's trip. Cold weather fishing is always the best because cooler water temperatures prevail, bringing in close those bigger fish. The days before Thanksgiving day were windy and too rough for small boats, with 22 knot winds all day and night plus plenty of rain. But Wednesday and Thursday were fantastic out on the water, with calm seas and brisk breezes. Thursday night it picked up and it's been windy ever since. The biggest cold front of the season is here now, rolling in just as Key Westers were finishing up that turkey dinner. It's too soon to tell whether the fish will hold through this cold front. But aside from the Tuesday and Wednesday storms, the season is off to a great start with not only great weather but also fantastic catches. Key West fishing guides at are excited for this winter, and their angler passengers are thrilled so far.

"The cooler water has brought in lots of incredible fish, and our guide just had no trouble at all finding them" says Marcia Gonzalez of Newark, NJ. Ms. Gonzales and her boyfriend came to the Southermost City this Thanksgiving weekend to get in some Key West fishing. "We caught grouper, mackerel, and snapper, all in one morning! What a great day on the water and out at the reef" she said, adding that she was already planning to fish with the same Key West fishing guide again next spring. "I can't wait to come back for tarpon season. I'll probably be here next April for some more fishing with the guys at

And it's not only on the reef that conditions are excellent so far this season. Offshore fishing is at its best now too, with large pelagics like wahoo coming closer. Wahoo make for excellent eating, so keep that in mind when you haul one in! This is also the time for Kingfish, and Key West fishing charters are already reporting amazing catches in this species as well. Captains at CoolWater and Outcast Charters, both members of the team, report amazing catches this week, especially in the offshore regions of Key West. These guides have years of experience under their belts, which makes it all the more exciting when they get excited about an awesome season.
