Florida Keys Fishing Report – January 2, 2020

It has been a very busy week for us at Main Attraction. Our boats have been running double charters to accommodate everyone during one of the busiest times of the year. We had a huge weather front blow through on December 18th starting in the afternoon and lasting until Sunday evening December 22nd. We tried our hardest to get these charters out, but for the safety of our passengers and vessels, we had to cancel or reschedule most of those trips. Once the weather let up, we were back on the water, fishing our awesome clients from all around the United States.

As we expected from previous experience once that rough weather moved on, the fishing has been consistent. While there have been winds between 10-20 mph,

that hasn’t stopped our anglers! Most of us know how fishing goes, some days are better than others, but overall our vessels have been catching some great fish.

While the wind picks up this time of year the bait moves in closer as well as the Gulf Stream. This allows us to fish offshore without having to go nearly as far out as we do in the Spring and Summertime. Because of this, we can offer 4-hour half-day Offshore trips this time of year. Of course, as always, the more time you give our Captains to help you put together a great catch, the better.

Our crews have been catching a wide variety of species utilizing different techniques. They have been catching large Yellowtail and Mutton Snapper on the reef

as well as a variety of Mackerel. The reef has also been offering some nice sized Black and Red Grouper but the season recently closed so they had to be released.

Offshore has been pretty good as well, catching Sailfish, Dolphin Fish (Mahi) and Blackfin Tuna mostly in the kite. We have also been catching Wahoo while high-speed trolling. We had a boat that caught 6 sailfish in one day a few days ago. A 40-pound Wahoo was also caught 2 days ago with our repeat customer, Mark, and his family. This very morning the Main One caught 2 large Wahoo over 30 lbs each while high-speed trolling.

Provided are some recent photos over the last few days of our catches. If you wish to book a trip with call us at (305) 289-0071 or visit our contact page.
