Hello everyone, and welcome to Fish Key West Florida, where you can experience all the thrills of deep sea fishing in Key West and then some. We hope that your holidays were everything that you wanted them to be– full of love, warmth, relaxation, and family. Ours certainly were, but we also managed to squeeze in quite a bit of fantastic winter fishing between all those moments of good cheer. You can read all the highlights right here in our December 2016 Fishing Report.
December’s a Great Month for Unforgettable Key West Fishing Vacations
The weather came in calm and beautiful this month and looked to be heading toward a typical Key West Christmas in the mid to high 70s. And even though the first week of December is supposed to be slow fishing here in Key West, our captains still somehow always manage to find the perfect spots to give clients the action-packed time of their lives.
This December was no different, with one client after another going out on the water and coming back with smiles on their faces, great memories, and plenty of Key West fish for dinner. Captain Derek helped get things started off great when he took some local clients out for sunset fishing just ahead of a storm. Sunset fishing down here means Blackfin Tuna and plenty of it. Captain Derek saw to it that these Key West residents pulled in plenty of them and, as you can see on our Facebook page, he even managed to snap a gorgeous picture of the sun sinking below the horizon just ahead of that storm.
December continued to be a great month for Fish Key West as Captain Rob took a split charter out on the Coolcast for a whole slew of gorgeous winter Mahi. A split charter is a great and inexpensive way to get in a lot of quality fishing time, especially on the Coolcast. At 36 feet, the Coolcast is the largest fishing boat in our fleet and can do a little bit of everything.
Captain Cory helped bring the first week of December to a fantastic close when he took out some repeat clients for a half day of porgies, snappers, and groupers. As usual, these clients sailed back in happy, tired, and with plenty of tasty dinners. This is how the first week ended here at Fish Key West Florida.
