Kings and Mangroves

Tuesday was a good day on the water.  Light winds, warm temperatures and plenty of fish to play with.  Mike from Maryland just wanted eating fish and was not that particular.  The Mangroves, yellow tail and porgies were not all that impressive size wise.  They are tasty though.  Mackerel were the main event with a splash of cobia that were just short making it interesting. 

The Kings were not monsters.  The largest in the box was only 15 to 20 pounds.  There were several larger fish that took a hundred yards or so of line before becoming unbuttoned.  There was of course bigger fish that took what they wanted from the fish Mike hooked up as well.  Chumming one spot on the reef most of the day we had constant action with about ten different species of fish. 

After a day off to recuperate, Mike is ready to give it another shot.  Live bait is a bit hard to find still, but we will take a quick look.  We plan to hit a few deeper spots early before setting up on the reef.  There are a few dolphin in close that may want to play and a mutton or two for photos would be nice.

My photos turned out crappy so this is one from Captain Pips Facebook.  Don't know why blogger will not allow me to show the Facebook photo with a link so you will just have to click the link to see the fish.

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
