Capt. Ted's Fishing Report for
Greetings once again from the Florida keys, this is the fishing
forecast of the father and son team of SkinsandFinsCharters captain
Ted and Donnie Benbow. We fish out of postcard in hotel and marina
covering Islamorada, Key Largo, and the Everglades National Park.
Flats: In October/November up on the flats the bonefish and permit are
two big targeted species in the keys. On days with a north west winds
we are able to pull on the Atlantic side flats in just a foot of
water. That is the preferred depth to find bonefish in schools either
tailing or moving along the bottom. Throwing small blue crabs or
shrimp with a egg sinker are the most productive baits to use. Also
for the more advanced angler throwing a crab fly with an eighth weight
fly rod is also a lot of fun. In the deeper water the permit can be
seen tailing and swimming along in the current. Tossing a live blue
crab will get you hooked up with a fish of a lifetime.
Backcountry: October/November bring cooling water temperatures and
this forces the fish into the deeper channels and runoffs. Redfish,
black drum, snook, trout, and Sheepshead are all targeted species. We
like to toss a jig head tipped with shrimp in the channels with moving
current slowly bouncing the bait along the bottom. Along the trees
rigging with pilchards as well as shrimp give our customers the
opportunity to hook up with large snook and possibly a baby tarpon.
Out on the edge of the gulf the cooler waters have brought in the
Spanish mackerel, pompano, and larger sea trout. After putting out a
chum bag the smaller bait fish bring in these fun fighting fish with
lots of action.
Well that's what will be going on the way we see it. Want to give it
a try? Give us a call or check out our website. Until next time this
is captain Donnie and Ted Benbow asking you to keep is in the shallow
