Island to Island Charters,
Key West: Daily Updates

Great day fishing in Key West!

February 19th, 2014

Started the day looking for rolling Tarpon just off Key West.  We were successful in that pursuit, but just couldn’t get the Tarpon to eat!  So we tried fishing a wreck nearby for Mangrove Snappers.  When I dropped the anchor we noticed a large Barracuda near the wreck.  My client, Derrick, casted a few times, but the Barracuda was  clearly aware of us being there.  We did catch some grouper & snappers, but only kept a large grey snapper.  One of the largest I have seen in awhile.

We then continued to travel West of Key West in pursuit of Jack Crevals.  We landed a few Lane Snappers, Mutton Snappers, and a good size Bar Jack who put up a strong fight.  Quite fun and enough to feed their family freshly caught fish that evening.

  • It was such a beautiful & calm day.  We saw several Sea Turtles cruising the channels.  We didn’t see the dolphins around Key West, but we were so happy with our  great day light-tackle, backcountry fishing, it didn’t matter.   I forgot to mention how much they enjoyed the space and comfort on my 23 foot Hurricane deck boat.  Perfect boat for both channel and shallow water fishing.
