8/21/14 Deep Sea Fishing report south of Key Largo

We get a lot of people who come down to go fishing in Key Largo, and they are more than willing to drive the extra 20 minutes south to where the best offshore fishing in the Florida Keys is! The fishing conditions are changing a little bit offshore now, with the mahi thinning out some, but the blackfin tunas becoming more reliable on the humps. There’s also some big sharks around too. We should see mahi and tuna the next couple months, but the mahis probably won’t be as good as they were in June and July. The swordfishing charters have been consistent overall this summer, We’ve been catching fish on about 75% of our charters, and some days yielding multiple fish. the biggest one we had this summer was 212 lbs, and most are 50 – 120. It takes patience though, because you are fishing for a bite or two all day. We had some big “slammer” mahi this summer, including a 57 lb bull on the Bn’M II. I have my boat, the Bn’M II,  1995 36′ Jersey Devil Express Sportfish boat for sale, if anyone is interested. If you’d like to go fishing send me an email at bnmcharters@gmail.com and I’ll try to get you out!
