Catch of the Day

Looking for a Sailfish Today

Looking for a Sailfish Today

Many of my customers are not particular about what they catch. Some just want "action" regardless of the type of fish. Some prefer to catch something they can enjoy for dinner at the end of the day. Both of those options leave me with a variety of fish to try to catch...

Mixed bag of great fishing

Mixed bag of great fishing

Today we didn't have one main species of fish we were catching. Instead, we had a mixed bag of great fishing. We missed a couple of Wahoos yesterday inshore so I decided to start in that same area today. I'm glad I did! We were only trolling for a few minutes when we...

Dolphin and Sailfish

Dolphin and Sailfish

We had a full day trip today. My group was a Bachelor party most of whom were from Louisana. I needed action and some good eating fish for the group and possibly a trophy fish. Some days, things just work out right and today was one of those days. I figured I would...

Good Action Today

Good Action Today

We had a mixed bag of fish today. No one species of fish were really biting. Some days are like that. You may want to target a particular kind of fish, but if it's not biting, you have to start looking for other species to keep people busy. We had hoped to fish...

Wahoo!

Wahoo!

In my last post, I mentioned the conditions were getting "right" and I expected the fishing to "bust loose" soon. We are coming up on a full moon and this time of year that means the Wahoo should be biting. Well, believe it or not, I was Right! Hell, maybe I'm...

Conditions shaping up

Conditions shaping up

Fishing is not "red hot" right now, but I have to think it is going to get better. Conditions are shaping up the way they should this time of year. We haven't had a "cold" front yet, but it is cooling off. Both the air and the water are starting to cool,...

Good Fishing Today

Good Fishing Today

We had a full day trip today. Our target species was Dolphin and it was good fishing today. I know most of the best fishing has been out deep lately. 750 ft of water or deeper. I figured if we were going for Dolphin there was no need to spend time inshore looking for...

Nice Dolphin Today

Nice Dolphin Today

Still catching some decent fish offshore of Key West. The Sargassum weed we had to deal with and complain about through the spring and early part of the summer is gone. Just a few scraps around. Without the weedlines to fish, we have to look for other indications of...

Still catching some Dolphin

Still catching some Dolphin

Fishing is still worth the effort. I won't say it's red hot, but we are still catching some dolphin as the summer comes to an end. Most of the fish are out deep. Usually in 700-800 ft of water. It's tough to get there in a half-day, but if you have a full day or a 3/4...

Weather is beautiful

Weather is beautiful

One thing about the weather this time of year, Usually it's calm and sunny. The fishing can be up and down like any fishing can, but most people really appreciate the beauty of being on the ocean when the weather is beautiful and the seas are calm and the water is a...

Where did all the weed lines go?

Where did all the weed lines go?

For most of the last 5 months or so, we have been inundated with a large amount of Sargassum weed floating in the waters off Key West, Flordia. Some days it was just scattered out. Some days it was in nice lines, and some days it was in big huge patches. It would...
