Just a quick note to let you all know that we had a great outing. I was on Southpaw with Captain Brad & 1st mate Heath. Not only were these guys friendly & jovial but their professionalism was clearly evident in the level of preparedness of tackle, bait & boat! All day long they put

Winter time fishing is getting good

We have had enough cold fronts and wind from the N.E. to really spark up the fishing action. The Sailfishing is getting very consistent- we've been catching them virtually every day. Blackfin Tuna are also showing up in pretty good numbers. There was a Wahoo bite on the full moon; quality fish in the 40-60

Good fishing in windy conditions

Over the last several weeks a succession of cold fronts has brought lots of blustery weather to the Key West area. Inspite of windy conditions the reef fishing has been very productive. Black Grouper, Yellowtail & Mutton Snapper along with Cero, Tunny and King Mackerel are all being caught with regularity. Many of our clients

Summer Time Dolphin Fishing

By |2011-08-11T02:17:10+00:00August 11th, 2011|Fishing Reports|

For those who regularly read my fishing reports, you might recall that back in May I complained that Dolphin fishing had not lived up to expectations during what is usually peak season. With the benefit of hindsight I can now say that the season was simply later than usual this year. We have enjoyed outstanding

Most fishing reports either posted in the newspaper or on private websites are relentlessly upbeat.

On the wrecks, the Amberjacks are
