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

Our offshore fishing has continued to improved from an already exceptional fall into winter season. You can get the rod knocked out of your hands this time of year offshore! The iconic Sailfish bite is on! Always elusive the Sailfish is a true "bucket list" species for most saltwater anglers. The numbers and average size of Sails so far this season has been the best in many years for the Key West Pro Guides team. Everything looking forwards promises many trophy catches for the light tackle offshore angler. February remains an excellent period for Kingfish action. Big "Smoker" Kingfish continue providing excellent action offshore and more occasionally nearer the reef during February. The Mackerel family is here in huge numbers in general with quality size schools of Cero and Spanish. February sees an increase in the aggressiveness of Black Fin Tuna. There are few species of pelagic fish capable of the total chaos when a school of big Black Fin show up. Many anglers travel to our island and local waters to pursue Black Fin schools this time of year our action day in and day out is just that good. We see a slowing down momentarily for the solitary Wahoo during February that will last until mid May. The action slows but there is always a few of these elusive sport fish that let there presence known when we least expect it by slamming baits unlike any other fish that swims. Raw, unbridled power and aggressiveness it what the fishing God's had in mind when the Wahoo came about. Mahi action improves for February so we will have days of great action when these outstanding pelagic get fired up...there seems to always be a few Mahi around in our waters but in fairness to the angler...think of them as still a wonderful bonus fish when they come in the boat during early February especially. The apex predators remain active with February being an awesome month for large Barracuda. We are moving into an exciting period for offshore however, we 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. 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!
