Key West Fishing Still Strong During Prolonged Cold Front

Despite the uncharacteristically prolonged cold front, Key West fishing remains strong with charter captains reporting successful fishing trips since the start of the year

Online PR News – 11-January-2010 – – The start of the new year has brought the longest series of cold fronts to the tropical island of Key West in recent memory. Despite the cooler temperatures, Key West Top Guides reports that the world of Key West fishing is as good as ever. The anglers on board might be more bundled up than usual, but the quantity of fish caught out on the offshore and back country waters remains as high, and some days even higher, as is typical of this time of year.

Key West fishing charters ( ) have been running daily, with most of their customers ready to brave the cooler temperatures. The winter season is prime time for offshore fishing Key West trips with game species such as blackfin tuna, sailfish, wahoo, dolphin and mackerel being found in abundance. In fact, the changing of weather fronts get many of these fish species moving around in large groups, making it easier for anglers to find and catch them.

The population of fish out on the back country and the flats is not nearly as abundant as out in the offshore waters during these cold fronts. A Key West fishing ( ) trip out to the flats, however, will provide anglers with an exciting challenge and the Key West Top Guides captains have reported several highly successful trips out to the flats.

The winter months of January through April are not always as cold as the last couple weeks in Key West have been. They are, however, the most popular months for tourists and travelers. Downtown hotels sell out early and most tours are filled daily. Key West fishing charters run various daily private charters for as few as two anglers and as many as twelve.
