JANUARY FISHING REPORT BY MANAGING DIRECTOR, SHELDON SUGA January 2, 2013
Happy New Year, anglers! There’s no better way to kick off 2013 than to spend a day fishing in the Florida Keys.
Inshore, January is a great month to fish the waters of Florida Bay and the
Florida Keys backcountry. Both areas offer plenty of action and can provide comfortable fishing conditions if the brisk winds of January blow through the islands. In the Bay, it’s a great time to target snapper, cobia, grouper, kingfish, and Spanish mackerel. There’s always something biting, and you shouldn’t have to wait long for your rod to bend.
Further out, in the protected waters of the Everglades backcountry, you can find a variety of species hungry for a bait or fly. Sea trout, redfish, snook, jack crevalles, sharks, and even smaller tarpon can be caught in good numbers all January. Stop down at the dock and let one of Hawks Cay’s world-class inshore guides introduce you to the amazing fishery and scenery of Everglades National Park.
On the Atlantic side, January is a prime month for sailfishing! As temperatures cool more and more, sailfish will push into the Middle Keys, giving you a shot at catching one of these hard-fighting and truly incredible billfish. Best of all, sailfish can be caught just a few miles from the Hawks Cay docks. You’ll have time to try and hook a sail, and then spend a couple of hours on the reef catching delicious snapper for dinner. Stop by the Dock Office inside the Dockside Store or call ext. 1921 to book your fishing adventure.
Tight lines, and great fishing in 2013!
