Florida Keys Fishing Report – September, 2020 – Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo

Florida Keys Fishing Report - September, 2020 - Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo The Florida Keys are still pretty busy, which is a surprise. Typically, every year once the kids go back to school, the Keys will see fewer visitors, making it our off-season.

Woohoo it's Wahoo! Florida Keys Charter Fishing When people think about Wahoo in the Florida Keys, they often think about high speed trolling or jigging under large floating debris miles offshore, typically while Dolphin Fishing in the late spring and summer. The wintertime, however, also presents some fantastic opportunities for anglers to land these highly prized, delicious, sushi-grade fish.
