May 2018 Fishing Report

For today's action call 866 259 4205

Our offshore fishing has exploded! The action remains for red hot the anglers with a 3/4 to full day charter available to them. May provides an endless list of trophy species to pursue for the light tackle anglers as well as the Deep Sea fans with continued exceptional Sailfish action. Daily our Sailfish action remains excellent and of late we have been successful targeting Swordfish...not a commonly pursued sport fish in our waters. These iconic sport fish should be on every angler's "bucket list". This is an excellent opportunity to pursue this truly trophy sport fish! We say hello to our summertime bread and butter species, everyone's favorite the Mahi Mahi (Dolphin fish). Dolphin are on the weed lines in numbers and can always be counted on for an action packed trip.

Black Fin Tuna remain in good numbers, providing some "banner days". This year so far has been exceptionally productive for Black Fin Tuna. We continue to load the boat with chunky Black Fin nearly every charter off our docks with some fish going north of 30 pounds so far. Cobia have been regularly taken off the well defined weed lines for the past few weeks. Surprisingly, we have continued to take a few solidary Kingfish which are a wonderful "bonus" species this late in our season for them.

The apex predators remain active with May being a good month for large Barracuda. We have moved into an exciting period for our offshore waters 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!
