Where should we fish in the Keys in August?

Florida, as you probably know is the fishing capital of the world. Fishing is excellent year round, but August is one of the slower months for fishing in Florida. However, we still have plenty fun species of gamefish to catch.

I would definitely pick the Florida Keys to fish, and for a few reasons. It is by far the most diverse fishing you can ever find. You have so many options right in the Keys, such as the Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico, Florida Bay, etc.

You have inshore, nearshore and offshore fishing with hundreds of species to choose from. You also have Lobster (“bugs” as we call them) season at this time. So, hands-down it’s the Florida Keys.

Have a safe trip and let us know how you do. Thank you for sending in your question to The Online Fisherman. Please send us some pictures of your trip!
