Catch of the Day

SAILFISH!

SAILFISH!

To be honest, the last couple of trips have been tough. Not a lot of fish or bites. Today was one of those days. On the bright side, we did catch and release a Sailfish. On the "not so Bright" side that was all we caught. It was windy, It was rough and it was slow....

Offshore Fishing Today!

Offshore Fishing Today!

We had a full day trip and decided to go offshore fishing today. The wind has been East or Southeast for the last few days. Even though it's late in the year, a Southeast wind might mean some Dolphin,(Mahi) around. With a Southeast wind, any debris or weed floating...

Half Day Today

Half Day Today

The boat had a half-day fishing trip today. I was traveling north, so Capt. Craig Jiovani was running the boat for me. Capt. Craig was a long-time owner and operator on Charter Boat Row. He had the boat called The Ultra Grand Slam for many years. He recently sold the...

Yellowtail Snapper Fishing Today

Yellowtail Snapper Fishing Today

My customers wanted to fish the reef today. Our target species was Yellowtail snapper. At first, I was a little apprehensive. It was blowing a bit in the morning, 18-21 mph but it was supposed to calm down as the day went on. I figured we would give it a try so off we...

Tougher day today

Tougher day today

I know I have a great job. I get to go out on the tropical waters of Key West, Florida every day. That is my job. That is what I do for "Work". Granted, it is work when your day is 12 hrs long and you sometimes 7 - 10 days in a row. But generally speaking, I get to...

Looking for a Sailfish Today

Looking for a Sailfish Today

The customers I had on board today have already fished 2 full days this week. We did well both days. On the first day, we caught 3 wahoos up to about 35 lbs and about a dozen "keeper" dolphin. On the second day, we caught a 30lb Wahoo and some reef fish. So they have...

Another Wahoo Today

Another Wahoo Today

We have been catching a lot of Wahoos the last week or so. I think we've had over a dozen in the last couple of weeks. The last 2 days were tough fishing. I had shorter trips and the Wahoos didn't bite. Unfortunately for the Wahoo fishing, the water color is changing....

Fishing for the wrong fish

Today, I think we were fishing for the wrong fish. There are many different species of fish here in the waters of the Florida Keys. Different species provide different angling experiences for different people. Some fish are "food" fish. They are sought and caught for...

Every day is different

Every day is different

Fishing has been very good the last week or so. We have had a run of late-season Dolphin, some great Wahoo fishing and a few Sailfish. But it is fishing and every day is different. We started looking for the Wahoos that have been stacked up south of Key West....

Whacking the Wahoo!

Whacking the Wahoo!

  Fishing has been good and we have been "Whacking the Wahoo!"  the last few days, (get your mind out of the gutter). Wahoo are a tough fish to catch. Normally you lose about half the Wahoo that bite and you don't always get a bite from a wahoo. Lately, we've...

Looking for a “Big Fish” today

Looking for a “Big Fish” today

If you think about it, "Fishing" is a broad term. It can mean many things. I've had people book my boat having no idea of how an "offshore" boat works. Trolling with rigged baits and lures is definitely different than using bobbers and worms for bluegills in the pond....

Half Day Today

Half Day Today

Just a 4 hr fishing trip today. We had the same customer as yesterday and we were still looking for a Sailfish. Because of the shorter trip, I didn't think it was worth stopping to get live bait. It would take too long and we had hooked Sailfish trolling on recent...
