King of the wreck

Today was a day to remember. Everything went exactly according to plan. We started our day getting some nice Yellowtail snappers for lunch. As we’re catching our snapper we also caught Bar jacks and Speedos to put in the livewell. With both the cooler and livewell packed full we headed to a deep wreck in […]

Hammer time of year in Key West

Today we started out on the reef in about 60 ft looking for some yellowtail snappers. As we’re yellowtailing we also put down a shark rod in hopes to catch something big. Little did we know we’d hook into something really big that we fought for just about an hour before finally getting boat side. […]

Inshore is every bit as fun as offshore

Today with the wind blowing 25 to 30 knots offshore we decided to stay inshore near Key West in the nice calm waters. We started our trip off in about 30 ft on a area of  heavy reef. After catching five months and snappers and putting three in the cooler we decided to switch up […]

Sharks don’t play nice

Today we started our day on The reef catching yellowtail snappers one after the other. We lost quite a few big yellow tails and a few other nice snappers on the reef to the sharks. We moved out to a deeper wreck and 180 hoping that the sharks would give us a break. Sadly the […]

Meat Mayhem

Last year I had fished the Meat Mayhem King fish tournament here in beautiful Key West all by my self. I called up a good buddy of mine Chuck and asked if he would join me for the touronaut this year. Chuck was in and we were a go. Chuck garbed a few buddies and […]

Big Snappers in the deep

Today I got to take Dave and his son Scott out fishing on a 6 hour charter. We skipped the reef and went straight out to the deep. We started on a wreck in 220 feet of water where we had constant steady action. Starting the day off with a few nice Porgy and Vermillion […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
