|Silvia and dad Mike with one of the plentiful Black Tips at the Bridge.|
After showing Mike a good Cobia time a few days earlier, it was tough when this and a few mangroves was the best I could do yesterday. The wind shifted and picked up just enough to limit the opportunities and my old friend the Seven Mile Bridge was not a nice as usual. Had the mutton snapper we caught been larger and the wind not against the current, things would have been more interesting. Not every day is a winner though. The blow continued today so my first day at Pancho's was also slow.
Tuesday, I took Justin and Sally from Colorado out for a fishing 101. They learned most of what they wanted plus caught a fair mess of Spanish Mackerel during the sight seeing, bait catching and fishing tour, but the wind that day was just enough to keep us on the Bay side. The wind is supposed to lay down a little during the weekend to a more reasonable 15 to 20 than the 20 plus than makes anchoring and fishing a lot less fun.
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.
