Sept and Oct are great months in the Florida Keys for mahi, tuna, billfish, wahoo, yellowtail, mangrove, mutton, grouper, permit, snook, redfish, AJ, yellow jack, deep dropping, trolling, chum a lot when anchored.
Fishing has been pretty good lately!! Lots of Vermilion snapper and triggerfish biting near the bottom and a good number of Kingfish, Sailfish, Cobia, Cudas, and more trolling near shore!! Also the mutton snapper and African pompano out in 130ft
People often have the misconception that it's to hot to be in the Florida Keys is the Summer time which is completely false. As central and northern Florida has daily average temperatures reaching 100 plus degrees the summer time average in the Keys is right around 85 with light breezes and perfect sight fishing conditions for Bonefish, Permit, Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Sharks and so many more. From mid August to mid October is the quite season here in South Florida so come enjoy some fishing and resorts all to your selfs.
Looks like the unseasonal wind is finally subsiding. Mutton snapper has been the highlight bottom fishing. King fish bonitos and mahi are around. I've been finding some Goliath grouper and large snook for the Instagram bros. Mullet run is right around the corner. Then the tarpon ,snook,Jack, and blacktip sharks will be abundant. When this happens we always seem to find mahi offshore.
