Rainy Day

It is a rainy day today so time for me to post up a little something about the fishing down here.  The main bite is still the snapper.  During the night bite the Mangroves are mainly caught on live pin fish or pin fish chunks.  The day bite has move to live ballyhoo back in the slick on a jig or knocker rig.  Three pounds is about the average size of the Mangroves.

The mutton bite seems to be slowing down a bit, but some nice fat fish are still hitting the dock.  Btw, while dropping for lanes and Muttons last week Joe boated a white Margate the when about 10 pounds.  Now that is one big Grunt!  During their trip Joe, Jordan and Grant boat some nice fish including a couple keeper red grouper, several 20 inch Lane snapper, some Mangroves in the 18 to 20 inch range and a few good size Cero mackerel.  Overall it was a slow trip for this crew.

Offshore is still spotty.  Some good catches and some long boat rides.  The flats guys seem to be doing well and there are still plenty of tarpon around.  Have not heard any bone fish or permit reports.

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,
