Dolphin Tourney and Boat Races

Saturday I guided a crew from Miami for a small corporate dolphin tourney out of Hawks Cay. The weather reminded me why I don't fish many tourneys. With the winds over 20 the seas were pretty sporty. We and every other boat fishing took quite a few waves over the bow. We found fish everywhere, but the biggest we got in the boat was a 15 pound bull. The other boats had trouble finding the bigger fish due to the conditions. The winning fish was 34 pounds with second a 28 pound cow. Our 15 pounder was the third or forth largest brought to the dock.

Fishing in 5 to 7 foot seas was very wet which my cellphone couldn't handle. It was a good phone. The crew I had had very little fishing experience so I will call the trip a tourney fishing 101. They did well and learned a good deal.

After Saturday's soaking, I enjoyed a relaxing day waiting out the rain to watch the boat races. The 7th annual Marathon Superboat Race was today and very enjoyable with a few rum and cokes. The start was delayed an hour and half to let the rain which we sorely needed, to pass. My thanks to the crews of the Blue Magic and Celia Pearl for great drinks, snacks, music and company.

Tommorow is supposed to be another dolphin trip if the weather cooperates. A lot of rain is in the forecast so we will play it by ear.

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
