red hot reef action

This morning we left Key West on a little half day trip at 8am. We headed to one of my favorite Yellowtail snapper spots and never had to move. We caught lots of Yellowtails along with so many awesome bonus fish. We caught Bonito, Barracuda, sharks and even a few big King mackerel. We had nonstop action catching fish after fish. You could not ask for a more perfect half day of fishing.

Sun up to sun down

Today we fished all day long. We fished on the reef on the edge of the reef. We fished some deep wreck and even drifted a few really deep wrecks. Hooking and landing a few really nice fish at each spot we went. Sadly no spot stayed hot for very long so we bounced around a lot. By days end we had a cooler full of fish and we were all tired and ready to get back to the dock just as it was getting dark.

Little bit of everything

Today we had one hell of a day today fishing with Donald and his family. We left Key West on a full day 8 hour charter at 8 am and headed south west. We started fishing on the reef in about 60 feet where we caught some monster Yellowtail snapper and one big Mutton on light tackle. After the reef we moved out to a wreck in 130 feet where we had lots of success. We caught 2 big Blackfin tuna, Mutton snappers, Sharks, and even a big Black grouper. Today went exactly to plan and was one hell of a good time.

Today I got to take out my friend and long time customer Will. He brought a few of his buddies along with him this time. We had a great time catching fish all day. We hooked and lost a Sailfish and caught a few King Mackerel along with a monster Blackfin tuna. When the later part of the trip came around we stopped on one of my favorite wrecks in 120 feet just off the reef edge. I had hoped we would catch some nice Mutton snappers but the Black groupers had a deferent plan. We caught 5 monster Black groupers one after the other. All the  fish were over 25 pounds. It was a crazy bite and so fun to be apart of. Sadly we had to let them all go but we had enough meat in the cooler anyway so it was all really just a bonus.

Big snappers and grouper on the half day

Today Scott his son and I headed out from Key west on a half day fishing charter. We headed straight to a wreck in 150 feet and never needed to move. We caught our first Black grouper of the new year. Witch we safely released. We also landed lots of Barracudas. Half way through the trip Scotts son Matt hooked a huge shark that took the both of them and about 30 minutes to land. In the midst of all this action was our coolest fish of the day. Scott hooked and landed a beautiful Cubera snapper in the 20lb range. Cubera are one of the toughest fish to not only hook but also to land.
