Finally a Fishing Report!

Photo thanks to Ray.

The wind cut us some slack yesterday and we actually got to fish. The water was still churned up around the bridge so the bay side was the only place to go. About eight miles back in the bay the water was clear enough to get a decent mangrove bite. Closer in the water was still off color with a weak bite.

The mangroves we got were very respectable in the 2.5 to nearly 4 pound range. We lost several larger fish to the wreck which would have made it a great trip had we boated them. Other than the Mangroves we had a few porgies, cero mackerel and jacks to pull the lines. The balleyhoo were thick and that was the bait that caught the bigger fish as usual.

We did have a first yesterday. One of my clients fell overboard. While there was abundant beer on board the cause of the MOB appeared to be more excitement related that alcohol related. Scott of course had his cell phone in his pocket.

The bite that we had ended as soon as the current started to slow down and the wind shifted to the west. So the afternoon part of the trip sucked other than poking fun at Scott.

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.
