Can't Wait to get Back to Fishing!

With lobster mini season and fear of Emily I have been spending way too much time working on the bus instead of fishing. I should have four day of fishing next week as long as the weather holds and it should.

It is August so it is hot. Compared to many places in the US right now it no where near as steamy. On the water it is not bad except for between about 1 and 4 when it is the hottest. That is a good time to do some fast trolling or run to another spot while blow drying. When you get back to the dock it feels ten degrees hotter.

Most of the buggers had good luck last week even though the water was dirty thanks to a little extra wind. Offshore the fishing has been pretty steady with nice size dolphin and a good many black fin tuna. The bite on the reef has been great though the fish are a little smaller than normal. The mutton bite on the deeper wrecks has be hot because of the spawn which is now tapering off. It is still worth a shot if you have good numbers and live bait.

Since it is pretty toasty outside, I switched my work on the bus to inside stuff. I replaced the flooring in the bed room with that Pergo stuff. That stuff is so cheap now that I am thinking about getting creative and using it for a wainscot and trim around the bed frame.

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,
