Capt. Ted's Fishing Report for 11/15/2016

Greetings once again from the Florida keys, this is the fishing forecast of the father and son team of SkinsandFinsCharters captain Ted and Donnie Benbow. We fish out of postcard in hotel and marina covering Islamorada, Key Largo, and the Everglades National Park. 
Flats: In October/November up on the flats the bonefish and permit are two big targeted species in the keys. On days with a north west winds we are able to pull on the Atlantic side flats in just a foot of water. That is the preferred depth to find bonefish in schools either tailing or moving along the bottom. Throwing small blue crabs or  shrimp with a egg sinker are the most productive baits to use. Also for the more advanced angler throwing a crab fly with an eighth weight fly rod is also a lot of fun. In the deeper water the permit can be seen tailing and swimming along in the current. Tossing a live blue crab will get you hooked up with a fish of a lifetime. 
 Backcountry: October/November bring cooling water temperatures and this forces the fish into the deeper channels and runoffs. Redfish, black drum, snook, trout, and Sheepshead are all targeted species. We like to toss a jig head tipped with shrimp in the channels with moving current slowly bouncing the bait along the bottom. Along the trees rigging with pilchards as well as shrimp give our customers the opportunity to hook up with large snook and possibly a baby tarpon. Out on the edge of the gulf the cooler waters have brought in the Spanish mackerel, pompano, and larger sea trout. After putting out a chum bag the smaller bait fish bring in these fun fighting fish with lots of action.
 Well that's what will be going on the way we see it. Want to give it a try? Give us a call or check out our website. Until next time this is captain Donnie and Ted Benbow asking you to keep is in the shallow grass.
