April Full Moon

I fished yesterday but didn't post. Why? Because I sucked! After talking to a few captains that fished yesterday I feel better about posting. Because I wasn't the only one that sucked.

The full moon does weird things to fishing. I know that and have written about it before. Avoid the moon if you can. This moon though was really weird. Twenty five mile west of Marathon the sailfish bite was awesome. Some boat leadered over 40 fish. Where I fished it sucked. We saw a lot of fish that would not eat. That is subject to change. We had green water off the reef Key Weird did not. That may explain the weirdness I encountered yesterday. Anyhoo, the big dolphin are moving in and there are a ton of sailfish in the area. Let the moon get a little darker and things are going to happen.

Rick the Pips dock master was the high dolphin hand of the day yesterday. He boated a 28# cow and a 45# bull just two miles East of me. So I zigged when I should have zagged. Close but no cigar for Capt. Dallas.

I hate posting stuff like this, but it is a real world. I don't always catch. I had to use all my jokes and resort to flats fishing for 'cuda to put smiles on faces.

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
