Trip Info


This week here at Fish Key West Florida we have experienced some red hot reef fishing. With a good running west tide the Yellowtail Snapper has been really good. Along with the Yellowtail we have been doing well on the Mutton Snapper, and a few Grouper as well. I always tell people fishing the reef is where your going to catch your dinner. We had a charter on Friday the consisted of two women staying at the beautiful Hyatt Resort, whom wanted to book a sunset 4 to 8 charter with us. There goal was to catch some fish, and have the Hyatt restaurant cook it up for them we they got back in. Well that’s exactly what they did. Capt. Nick on the Coolcast picked them up behind the Hyatt (by boat) at 4:00 and went to the reef. Within a couple hours they caught their limit of huge flag size Yellowtail Snapper and were ready to come in for dinner. Once back at the Hyatt dock, Capt. Nick filleted the fish and they walked up to the hostess, gave her the portion they wanted cooked, and sat down for an amazing sunset dinner. It doesn’t get fresher than that.
