A few sailfish showing up with the changing season

As the water starts to cool off here in Key West we see an increase number and sailfish pushing down some of the color changes. We were bottom fishing on a wreck in 190 when we hooked this beautiful sailfish. We also landed multiple mutton snappers , sharks, and a few really nice amber jacks before heading home on a 6-hour charter.

Changing of the seasons

The temperature has finally broken here in beautiful Key West. We have finally left the ’80s and are now continuing to linger in the mid ’70s on most days. This change in temperature is what gets the fish really going this time of year. We will begin to see more fish coming back up onto the reef from the deep. We will also see more sailfish coming through and lots and lots more tunas.

Big Jacks

Today we headed offshore to do a little mahi fishing. Then why he bite was much slower than we had hoped for so we came in and started fishing on a deep wreck. We hooked multiple jacks over 50 lbs and caught a few Bonita’s before heading home.

Fall time is Tuna Time

With fall starting to set in and the temperature breaks from the summer heat we start to see more and more blackfin tunas here in Key West Florida.

On my last few trips we have gotten quite a few nice blackfin tunas along with snappers, jacks, sharks, and barracudas. As the water temperature begins to cool the fishing will get hotter and hotter book your charter today by calling me directly on my cell at 574-238-8963.

Black groupers on the menu

Had a great day full of action today. We hit the reef for some yellow tails then hit a wreck for some barracudas.

I then moved on to a deeper wreck where we drifted some live baits for some big groupers We ended up landing three with one of them being eaten. We also landed some amberjacks and then set up on one final wreck where we caught lots of sharks.

 

Elsa is gone time to fish on

With tropical storm Elsa gone it’s time to get back out there and start fishing again. This was just 2 days before the storm. If you are ready to fish I’m ready to go. Let’s make some lasting memories on the water.

Snapper season in the Keys

It’s snapper season here in Key West Florida. We are getting lots of nice Yellowtail snappers on the reef in about 70 feet of water. Our Mutton snapper a heating up as we close in on spawning season. Wreck and reef will be the way to go till mid to late May when the Mahi mahi start migrating through.

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 170 feet. We had all the action we could handle. Landing monster Amber jacks one after the other. We even landed 2 big Black groupers. With time for one more drish Alex (a 16 year old boy) asked if we ever catch Goliath grouper? I said oh yeah!! We put our biggest bait on our biggest rod and boom fish on. With a lot of power, luck, and determination we had him.

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. After a long fight we had our prized fish a big Hammerhead  shark close to 250 lb. After getting a few pictures with the shark we let him go then went to a wreck in 190 feet where we caught a few more nice sized amberjacks all over 40 lb. It was really a perfect day we caught lots of snappers for dinner some big sharks and some strong amberjacks to finish off.

More action on the shallow reefs

Today we headed out about 4 miles and settled on one of my all time favorite shallow reef spots. We caught so many fish it was hard to keep up with these young boys. Just such a great day on the water 🙂
