Florida Keys Fishing

Bluefish

Bluefish

Bluefish are common around Florida Bay in the cooler months and are in the sounds of the upper keys all year. The bluefish that live down here don’t get as big as the ones up north , they usually are less then 5 pounds, but they are aggressive fish specifically when they are schooling. They literally chew baits to shreds, attacking baits almost as big as they are. They have sharp teeth so either a wire or heavy leader with a circle hook would be the preferred tackle. They are good to eat but have oilier, darker meat.
