Mo' Fishing 101

A new crew is in town just in time for the full moon.  The full moon doesn't really kill the fishing but it does make catching a bit more of a challenge.  On the Bayside spot the wind and current where just a little off, normally not a big deal, but yesterday the bite just shut down.  Same at the bridge and the rockpiles.  Catching didn't start until we hit the patches and the reef proper.

Yellowtail in 65 foot were respectable but not monsters and stayed way back.  It took a while to get the crew into the subtle art of "tailing, but once they got the hang of it they could have limited out in a little longer than normal time despite the moon.

The patches where a bit slow as well but the slow bite fish, Porgies and Hogfish, are often worth a bit more wait than normal.  The crew is on their own today so we will see how well they do sticking to one flavor of fishing instead of the typical Fishing 101 whril wind tour of stuff.

Weather is looking great for the next week if Windfinder is to be believed.  That should open up the offshore parts of the Fishing 101 which are closed most of the winter.

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
