The Florida Keys reopened during the first week of June. We have had a very busy charter schedule ever since. Historically June and July are prime time for Dolphin. This year that fishery has been a big disappointment. While Dolphin have been plentiful on many trips, the average size has been way down with many

While the Covid-19 pandemic has put an end to charter fishing over the last two months, we will be back in operation in early June when the Keys reopen for business. We have been getting out with family and friends. The fish are still here. Lets go fishing.....

Having fished in the Florida Keys for 40 years, I continue to be reminded of how fickle fishing can be. What worked yesterday will not always produce results today. Changes is wind direction and velocity along with water quality and the direction and amount of current all affect the wintertime fishing. Of late, it's been

As we begin the new year,  King Mackerel fishing has really heated up. We have been catching them both on the anchor and on the troll or kite fishing. Our largest so far has been 38lbs with several others in the low 30's. They provide great action on light tackle. We've also been catching Mutton

    We've been catching a mixed bag of species of late. Sailfishing is decent, most days we've fished for them we've caught them. There has also been a few Wahoo bites. Kingfish are starting to show up in greater numbers, and on the reef Yellowtail Snapper have been biting consistently

Fall Dolphin fishing has remained consistent over the last several weeks. We have found the fish on the reef edge chasing Ballyhoo some days, under frigate birds other days, or along current edges and around floating debris. Most of the fish are 5 to 15 pounds. Also getting some Sailfish bites both on the troll

After our annual fall boat yard trip we are back in the water to resume running charter fishing trips. There has been good fall Dolphin fishing with a few Sailfish bites mixed in.

Dolphin fishing has been our primary focus over the last month. This is typical for this time of year. Most of the action has taken place well offshore from the edge of the wall where water depths fall from 900' to 1500' out to 6-8 miles beyond the wall. finding Bird life and weed lines

Over the past month we have seen a steady improvement in the fishing. A distinct color change has been in place for three week, featuring green water on one side and bright blue water with strong east current on the other.

Fishing over the last month has been challenging. We have had an on going issue with scattered Sargasso weed which has been so thick it is often impossible to fish a given area. Water quality has also been an issue with a lack of the vibrant color changes we expect to have this time of
