First time client John Wilber along with his son and friends had a great day on Friday October 28th. The day began with plenty of action from late season Dolphin along a weedline and color change in 250′ of water. Most of the fish were in the 10 to 12 pound range. In the afternoon we worked a strong color change right in front of Sand Key Light in depths from 170′ to 190′ and caught 5 Sailfish including a triple header. We saw a total of 9 Sails in two hours and had bites from 7. These Sails are the typical small fall fish we see every year, average weight about 20 pounds. What they lack in size they more than makeup for in aggression- often attacking the baits in groups of 3 or more.

TheÂ SOUTHPAW is back in the water after getting refurbished in the boat yard. Projects included fresh bottom paint and zincs, new cushions where needed, new paint below decks,
fresh wax on the hull,Â and the installation of a new Simrad chart/depth machine. All in all the boat is looking better than ever. We continue to be Key West’s best Charter Boat! On the fishing front, late season Dolphin and early season Sailfish are here. For those with a taste for Snapper, the Yellowtail are also biting well. The included pictures are from a recent Tuna trip to Nova Scotia- 34 giant Bluefins caught in 10 days of fishing.
