Small Dolphin Today

But We did See a Whale

Sperm Whale South of Key West, Florida

It’s hard to tell from the pictures, but this whale is about 34-40 ft long.
It only let us get within about 100 ft before it dove, but it was very cool just the same.

My “whale identification” skills leave a lot do be desired,
but from the people I’ve checked with, I believe this is a Sperm whale.
We were about 25 miles South of Key West in about 2,100 ft of water  when we spotted it.

Bonitos, a couple of Cobias and a Kingfish

Last year these folks caught a 54 lb Cobia and it went nuts on the deck. My mate, Eric had to knock it out with a 2×4.
It was quite a show.
 So they brought me this custom Cobia “calming device” for any future cobias that get a little crazy on the deck.

It’s also the new “Customer Complaint Dept”
