Jacob and the Balleyhoo

Thanks to la nina the winds have been abnormal this season. Southeast 20 knot winds in July just ain't fun in a small boat. Most of my die hard client are just a bit miffed. Then along comes Jacob and his sister Megan.

Young kids just want to catch fish. Bait like Pinfish and Balleyhoo are great kid size entertainers that the parents can trade in for something more challenging. Jacob pictured and Megan caught plenty of bait which they and dad traded in for a variety of sharks, barracuda, snapper and mystery fish. Mystery fish being critters that spool your light tackle when you are expecting something smaller. All of the action was within two miles of the dock in sheltered water.

Add a trip to a deserted island with a nice beach to explore and the kids were nearly as impressed as the parents.

Marathon in the Florida Keys should be your next fishing vacation destination. Join us for charter fishing, fishing guide trips or our fishing 101 so you can fish on your own with better success.

Tight lines,

Capt. Dallas

  1. Hey Capt.,

    I found you on CP's website. I read your charter fishing article, commented on it and then find out you are in Marathon!

    We stay a week or two at Hawk's Nest on Knight's Key there in Marathon. In May '09, if nothin' don't happen, you can expect a call from me for a charter.

    I want to catch some Dolphin and I do not mean Flipper! Maybe you could put us on some Mahi-Mahi too! ; )

    Take care,

    Jax, FL
