Forecast for Islamorada, Key Largo and the Florida Keys
Capt. Ted's Fishing Report for
Greetings once again.
This is the fishing forecast for the father and son team of Skins
and Fins Charters, Captain Ted and Captain Donnie Benbow. We fish the
waters of Islamorada, Key Largo, Everglades National Park and the rest
of the Florida Keys "Sportsfishing Captial" of the world. We dock all
three of our boats at the Holiday Isle Marina in down town Islamorada.
Flats/Sight fishing: On the calmer days up on the flats, Captain
Donnie will be taking his skilled casting Anglers in about a foot of
water hunting for redfish, snook and big spotted sea trout. Casting
along the mangrove shore line and overhangs pitching DOA Air Heads
plastics. On the flats near Islamorada if mother nature allows us,
bonefish, redfish, sharks and if you get lucky and small tarpon are
the targeted species.
Gulf: The spanish mackerel fishing will be in full swing. I like to
stay in about 10 to 15' of water and start shaking the chub bag. Using
light tackle and light wire we cast jig heads tipped with shrimp
through the chum slick for macs up to 40 inches, there will also be a
mixed bag of pompano, snappers, sea trout and more.
The gulf trips provide lots of action for the whole family, not to
mention fish for dinner too. If the wind is blowing out of the north
we fish the shallow patch reefs in 20' of water for grouper, mackerel,
hog fish, Snappers.
Backcountry: On the cooler days we head back to the Everglades to
get out of the wind. There we fish in the channels and run offs and
creeks of Flamingo. Bouncing shrimp off the bottom we target snook,
redfish, sea trout, black drum, sheapshead and snappers. The nice
thing about windy days in the Keys is when it is to rough to go in the
ocean, you can always find a place out of the wind in the backcountry.
Offshore/Deep Sea: During the winter months, Sailfish is the best
fish to target. This is when the anglers take advantage of the bigger
charter boats. Slow trolling in depths of 100 to 150 feet of water
bumping there motors in the out of gear just enough to keep there
lines tight. using baits such as ballyhoo, pilchard and cigar minnows.
Some Captains will also fly a kite with goggle eyes or blue runners to
attract the fish up from the deeper waters. When the water is calmer,
swordfish will still be a option too also out in the deeper patch
reefs, keeper sized grouper, porgies, king mackerel and snappers.
Well that's what is going on the way we see it. Want to give it a try?
Give us a call. Till next time the is Captain Ted and Donnie Benbow
asking you to " Keep in the shallow grass"
