August Fishing Report—For today's action call 866 259 4205

Our offshore fishing continues with great Mahi Mahi action. The Mahi bite remains excellent for August but the slowing for these awesome fish is on the horizon towards September. Mahi (Dolphin fish-Doradao) are plentiful, schooling fish that provide excellent action at a blistering pace most days. High leapers when hooked up, beautiful colored fish that also are a favorite for many on the dinner plate. Wahoo are prized and very sought after, elusive sport fish that peak in July & August in our waters. We have already experience a huge kick off to our Wahoo action with several quality fish being taken over the past weeks. These are awesome sport fish and frankly should be on every offshore anglers "bucket list". Swordfishing in August can be as good as it gets in our waters but Swordfish trips come with this warning...the success rate for these elusive sport fish is low and there are certainly no guarantees. This fishing requires super deep waters well offshore twenty miles plus easily and not for every angler. August still provides some good Spanish and Cero Mackerel action but again will be slowing by months end. Black Fin Tuna may still remain for a short while but for the most part we look past them now.

The predators remain aggressive with August also being an awesome month for large Barracuda. We have moved into an exciting period for offshore angling however, we always believe a 1/2 day charter still has some challenges with ever changing travel times between marina and fishing grounds. Best bet book at least the 3/4 day (six hour trip) especially if you are a party of three or four or more and get on the water early.

Let's go Fishing! Call Key West Pro Guides today to book your charter 866 259 4205 daily 7 AM to 9 PM. We look forward to your call!
