March Fishing Report
Pack your rabbit feet and four-leaf clovers, because no other time of year is luckier than with Captain Moe’s Lucky Fleet! With a bit of the “luck o’ the Irish” and the warming temperatures of spring, you can expect excellent fishing off the coast of Key West. As the tropical winds usher in the migration of more fish, let us help you on your next adventure at sea.
You Gotta’ Permit?
As you cast your line out over the flats, be on the lookout for Permit. Warmer waters push these fish through shallower areas while on their way to wrecks and reefs. Additionally, while the Permit is popping, you’ll be able to pull in Redfish and Cobia.
Down Wind of a Great Catch
Don’t forget your jacket, because you’ll be facing some serious winds out on the open water during March. Fortunate for deep-sea fishermen, the winds also blow in Tuna, Kingfish, Sailfish and more. Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) will start to become more prevalent in spring, having an affinity for warmer waters.
Nab Some Tarpon
Get ready to jump into the backcountry, because Tarpon season officially begins in March. Utilizing live bait, chumming and other techniques help us reel in the biggest Tarpon of the bunch. Also, the backcountry is teeming with Redfish, Barracudas, Snappers and Sharks, all ready to put up a fight.
A Sports Fisherman’s Dream
As mentioned previously, Permit will migrate through the flats and into the wrecks and reefs. Once there, they begin to spawn, attracting other fish to feed. Among these fish, you can spot the always-exciting-to-catch Sailfish. Between both Permit and Sailfish, March is one of the most active months for sports fishermen.
