Hello everyone, and welcome back to this week’s report from the Upper Florida Keys!  Consistent fishing this week and fairly consistent weather for this time of year.  Fishing continues to hold on with a nice bite of Kings, a few sailfish, and a few blackfin tunas.  Throw in plenty of groupers that are closed for the season, a couple mutton snappers, and an african pompano here and there and that is what is going on.  I suppose a bite from the yellowtails when the current is moving as well.  Nothing crazy to write home about, but the good news is that the water is warming and things are slowly coming back to life.  It is really feeling like once we get through this new moon we will be back on track.  Need the water to warm up just a little and I think all will be good and just right for the spring fishing to take off.  Bait is still pretty tough, but we have been getting what we need.  At least enough to make the day and not spend a crazy amount of time each morning catching it so we will take it.  Looking forward to some  nice weather for the weekend, and hoping the rain stays away.   Check back next week for a new report and what has been happening in the Upper Florida Keys!   Thanks for reading, and be safe out there!

Tight Lines,
