November Flats & Back Country Fishing Report For today's action call 866 259 4205

November arrives here with cooler temperatures and several newly arriving fish species to pursue in the back country. Fantastic action for Key West angling continues through the fall time frame in the shallow bays, basins and on the Mangrove island shorelines.

Back country fishing in November is excellent! This is easily our recommendation for the angler looking to fish shallow, calm waters. November brings a number of prized sport fish to the back country. The back country angler in November has a menu as long as your arm of species to target.

All of our resident year round species are in numbers but now we begin to enjoy better Redfish action. Unfortunately the Snook action will slow however, the Speckled Sea Trout are arriving ready to provide some of the fastest paced action imaginable. Bonefish will be congregation in the back country, the Permit cruise the channel edges and flats drop-off contour changes in small wolf packs of two to four fish. Cobia are present most days. Mangrove and Yellow Tail Snapper along with Grouper remain active. The occasional school of Mackerel is found in the back country. The predator fishing remains very good with larger Barracuda and several species of sharks patrolling the back country waters. As you can clearly see if you are a shallow water angler or if a fast paced action trip with a wide variety of species possible is your choice...November is an exceptional time to fish our back country's amazingly beautiful waters.

For November: Excellent-Good-Fair to Poor Redfish-Good Snook-Fair to Poor Trout-Fair to Good Bonefish-Fair Permit-Good Tarpon-Fair to Poor Cobia-Good Mackerel-Excellent Snapper-Good Grouper-Good Barracuda-Good Shark-Good
