Keys Fishing Reports
DECEMBER FISHING REPORT BY MANAGING DIRECTOR, SHELDON SUGA December 9, 2013
From the Desk of Managing Director Sheldon Suga
Welcome to the islands! Relax, enjoy your stay, and don’t pass up the chance to hit the water and experience the world-class fishing, diving, and watersports only found in the Florida Keys. For you anglers, December marks the beginning of our wintertime fishing season. This is an excellent month to head offshore in search of hard-fighting pelagic fish including wahoo, tuna, and one of my favorite species to catch, sailfish! Just hook up with one of our professional captains down at Hawks Cay Marina, and they’ll help you hook into a fish of a lifetime!
Inshore, December still offers a chance at bonefish and permit on the flats (weather permitting), as well as exciting fly and light tackle action for big barracudas. In the backcountry, expect a good bite of snook, speckled trout, and redfish, with a shot at tarpon as well. Don’t forget that December is also the last month to keep grouper until the spring! Ask your captain about fishing the reef for delicious grouper and snapper.
For you thrill seekers, December can be windy at times, making it an ideal month for kiteboarding. Hook up with oTHErside board sports and they’ll get you set up with all of the instructions and gear you’ll need. Also be sure to check out oTHErside’s Cable Park on Grassy Key, where overhead towing devices pull you across the calm and protected waters. Wakeboard, waterski, or kneeboard!
Tight lines and good fishing… Sheldon
