Key West Top Guide's reports the conditions of fishing Key West in the offshore, back country, and flats fishing waters
Online PR News – 02-February-2010 – – Fishing in Key West Florida is known for being great all year long, but different seasons mean different types of excellent fishing on the different areas surrounding the small island of Key West. Despite the record low temperatures at the beginning of January, Key West Top Guides reports a successful month, especially out on the back country waters and the offshore waters.
Key West Top Guides, the leading center for private and party Key West fishing charters, already reported earlier in the month that the offshore fishing charters were returning to the island with impressive catches. Offshore fishing in Key West during the winter is excellent thanks to the large populations of game fish moving in closer to the island. This means that fishing charters spend less time getting to the fish and more time reeling them in.
Reports for back country Key West fishing charters for January also came back with success stories. Winter species in Key West's back country include longer species like trout, pompano, ladyfish, barracuda, and sharks. The waters are teeming with these species and many Key West fishing charters returned to the island with as many as 20 (and sometimes more) fish caught in just a half day charter.
Flats fishing in January has seen a lot of permit. Large barracuda can be found in the warmer waters at the edge of the flats. Tarpon, one of the most popular Key West fishing species in the flats, should start arriving at the end of February and this is when the action on the flats really starts to pick up.
"All in all it was a really successful start to the high season," says Key West Top Guides reservations agent Don Garcia. "Our Key West fishing charters continue to provide Keys visitors with the best in fishing experiences on offshore, back country and flats waters."
Key West fishing charters provided by the Key West Top Guides provide anglers of all levels of experience with the best fishing Key West trip possible. The experienced Key West fishing charter captains can provide guest anglers with as little or as much help in fishing as the on-board anglers desire. Key West fishing is in its high season right now with the largest number of visitors to the island, so private fishing charters sell out nearly every day.
