Upper Keys Labor Day Weekend Report


Author: Jack Shealy

           Over the past weekend I had the pleasure of fishing the upper Florida Keys, specifically the Tavernier area. While the mahi bite off Miami continues to dominate the southeast region there are still fish to be caught else where. This weekend they were cruising around 800 feet concentrated in the current rips and weed lines. The majority of fish were small gaffers in the 5-10lb range and luckily we spotted a frigate bird and came across this beast. On the reef the yellowtail bite was consistently good with fish all in the 14-20 inch range, early morning and later in the afternoon seemed to be the times they were most active but the real key was finding good current.

On the reef the yellowtail bite was consistently good with fish all in the 14-20 inch range, early morning and later in the afternoon seemed to be the times they were most active but the real key was finding good current. Killer Bait's 25 pound chum block with handfuls of oats mixed in brought them up to the boat. While summer time is fun the real work is right around the corner, winter fishing is fast approaching and in our next article we'll show you what we're doing to get ready for this years sailfish season see you there!
