A September Update

I am still alive and kicking. Actually feeling pretty good since I quit taking one of the friggin' blood pressure medications. I think the doctors were trying to kill me with some of that crap.

Fishing wise things are pretty good. The dolphin bite is still on with plenty of good size fish to 15 pounds coming to the dock. Not many big fish, but plenty for the freezer. The Yellowtail bite is pretty strong and the Mangroves are biting good almost everywhere. The mutton bite in Marathon is a little slow but that may be because there aren't that many people targeting them now that the spawn is over.

With the new moon we have been having some wicked high tides. The highest I have ever seen down here. The tides haven't effected the fishing very much but watch were you park or you may have to wade back to your car. The high tides do make it a little easier for the shallow water guys to chase bonefish and permit. Both of which are biting well in the warm water as usual.

Other than the Peterson's poker run there is not a whole lot happening in the Keys. Lots of bikes down here right now if that is your kinda thing. Fantasy Fest is coming up the last week of October. So if you want to get in a little fishing and naked lady ogling that is a good time to come down.

I have one more week of real work at Boca Chica then it is back to scrounging around for odd jobs until the season gets rolling again. So far it is looking pretty good. I have been getting a few calls from customers instead of bill collectors for a change. By the way, Doc and I made the center fold of the Southern Most Flyer newspaper with our little temp job.

If you have the time, pop on down to do a little fishing or bring a bottle of Scotch and just shoot the breeze. The weather has been pretty tame this year so it is not a bad time to do a little catching.

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
