Mark's Custom Harley a Winner

With not to much going on with fishing this week with all the bikers in the Keys for the Phil Peterson poker run, I am going to talk about Mark Rowden's success yesterday at the bike show in Key West.

Mark and Johnny at Captain Pips started a little custom bike shop called the Little Shop of Choppers. Over the past few years Mark has gotten pretty good shooting paint and building bikes.

While his bikes have done well in shows, this is the first time one of his bikes took first place in the Sportster division. He enter another bike in the Softtail division and that one took second place. Pretty dang impressive if you ask me.

I write for Associated Content so I did a little interview with Mark that I have published there.

Key West Poker Run: Mark Rowden Built Custom Chopper is a Winner
Phil Peterson's 36th annual Key West poker run was special for the Little Shop of Choppers in Marathon Florida. Mark Rowden and E. R. Burk entered custom Harley Davidson bikes they built and walked away with first and second place plaques.

Fishing has mainly been Yellowtail Snapper and Cero Mackerel time. The offshore bite has been slow since the full moon. There are Dolphin around they are just finicky. The dolphin bite should pick up some, but we are in the tween time when the snowbird fish haven't moved in and the summer fish haven't moved out. So offshore will be a little slow for a while.

The Bayside has been pretty good. Nice catches of mangroves, starting to see more Mackerel and we have been jumping some Black Tip sharks that are a bunch of fun. The bridge has been a little flaky due to the moon and Ike's winds. It is still worth a shot, but the bite is slower than normal.

I expect my Hawk Channel spots to start heating up pretty soon. When that happens you should see plenty of good eating fish.

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
