October Fishing Report

October Fishing Report

When ghosts and ghouls take flight, so too do our reels fly. With Captain Moe’s Lucky Fleet, we help you catch the most fish available during the year’s final months. While out on the water, you’ll be pulling in Shark, Barracuda, Snapper, Mackerel, Wahoo and Mahi Mahi.

Backcountry Catches

Shark Fishing Key WestWe take you a short distance away from the docks in our backcountry boats to catch the most Shark, Snapper and Barracuda. For years, shrimpers have been cleaning their catch and shoveling the remains overboard to attract these other species of fish. This helped to create a migratory path through Key West harbor, which we still use to this day.

Mackerel is King

With our light tackle fishing, we help pull in the biggest King Mackerel off the coast. Kings tend to hang with baitfish groups on nearshore reefs. Using a downrigger and cigar minnows, we get you to the depth needed to reach these fish and help pull them in.

Wahoo are one of the best picks for sport fishermen, providing a good fight on light to medium tackle. While trolling or deep jigging, we can find plenty of Wahoo to keep you entertained. Typically, Wahoo can be found at depths of 50 to 100 ft, along edges, deep water wrecks, weed lines and rips.

Where to Find Mahi Mahi

For bigger game fishing, you want to go for Mahi Mahi. By wrecks and in deeper water, you may also find Mahi Mahi by searching for driving and frigate birds congregating in one area. Smaller lures work better when trolling, attached with feathers, ballyhoo, cigar minnows or herring.
