First of double Half Days

Today I had back to back half day fishing charters. We headed out at 9 am due to some rain first thing in the morning. We didn’t let a little rain stop us as it was still sprinkling as we left Key West and headed south in the Atlantic Ocean. We made our first stop on a wreck in 90 feet but after a few small fish we soon moved out to the edge of the reef.

We had far better production on the edge of the reef. We landed 3 big sharks all over 100 lbs along with 1 stud Mutton snappers. We later set on the reef in about 60 feet where we landed some huge yellowtails before heading back to Key West to clean some fish before turning around and doing it all again.

4 hour reef/wreck action

Its always great when clients of mine come back to Key West a year later and the first thing on there list is to fish with me again. I had a blast taking out Jamie and his wife out again this year. We started our day on the reef with our focus on yellowtail snappers. The bite was great but after catching a hand full we set our sights on some bigger snappers and groupers. Turns out that’s exactly what we found. We headed to a somewhat shallow wreck in 90 feet where we landed a nice horse eye jack and on beautiful black grouper. After a few more minutes we landed a beautiful mutton snapper before heading in for some fresh caught fish for lunch.
