November Offshore/Deep Sea Fishing Report—For today's action call 866 259 4205

November brings awesome offshore action for the Key West angler. This is the real beginning of our fall into winter trolling well offshore on the weed lines, color changes and rip currents.

Our offshore fishing is rapidly and vastly improving for light tackle action. The iconic Sailfish begins to come to life and the rare but possible Marlin remains "possible but not likely". Nothing epitomizes sport fishing like a "tail walking" billfish. As we say farewell to our summer time species we welcome several exciting pelagic species. Big "Smoker" Kingfish schools provide excellent action well offshore. The Mackerel family is in huge numbers in general with quality size Cero and Spanish. November is an excellent time to target the action packed Black Fin Tuna. There is nothing better than crossing paths with a school of Black Fin on the chaos but remarkably fun. The elusive Wahoo during November produce memorable takes, and long line stealing runs not soon forgotten by anglers. The apex predators remain active with November being a good month for large Barracuda although numbers may be down somewhat well the angler simply trades quantity for quality. Sharks commonly cruise weed lines etc. and are only there to feed so when we cross paths lightning strikes! The 1/2 day offshore charter can work but does limit the actual "lines in the water" fishing time due to 30 to 45 minutes travel times required to and from the fishing grounds. Our recommendations are to book at least the 3/4 day (six hour trip) with the full day giving us all the tools to work with for you. For November: Excellent-Good-Fair to Poor

Sailfish-Good (improving daily)

Marlin-Fair (always elusive and very "hit or miss")


Spanish & Cero Mackerel-Excellent

Black Fin Tuna-Good moving towards Excellent




Dolphin-Poor Let's go Fishing! Call Key West Pro Guides today to book your charter 866 259 4205 daily 8 AM to 9 PM. We look forward to your call!
