Florida Keys Winter Time Fishing Options – Marathon, FL.
The cooler months of November through March the fishing in the Florida Keys is controlled by the weather. One day it can be flat calm and 85 degrees and the next it can be 65 degrees and windy. There are many different options as to what to fish for and how to do it. Your charter boat captain can recommend several different options and species to catch generally 2-3 days before your scheduled charter. 99.9% of the time we are able to get out on the water and have a great day no matter what the weather is doing. It is very rare that we have to cancel a fishing charter because there are so many different areas to fish here in the Florida Keys. For example: If the day of your charter happens to be really windy we might recommend to fish in the backcountry area of the Gulf of Mexico that way we will be in shallower water and can even hide behind the flats and mangrove islands so the water isn’t too choppy. Or if the day of your charter happens to be really calm we might recommend to fish out on the reef or even some deeper water wrecks. Winter time fishing is all about the weather forecast. Here at Angling Adventures we watch the weather constantly. Not exaggerating at all we probably check the weather forecast 10 times a day even on the rare days we don’t have a charter. Trust in your captain to make the right call on where to fish that particular day. We have been doing this a very long time and we always want our customers to come back to the dock with smiles and pictures to brag about their awesome day with us.
