Trip Savers

With all the Permit on the wrecks and Tarpon at the bridges I thought I would have an easy day showing Juan how to catch some neat fish and spots where he could take his kids for fast action.  Wrong!  We didn't see a permit or tarpon so we had to settle for a couple of Muttons.   It was one of those great days to be a diver not so great to be an angler days.  We did spot a few new rock piles in Hawks Channel since we could see the fish that weren't biting in over 30 foot of water.

The Muttons are a classic example of knocker rig with live shrimp saving the day.  We did get some balleyhoo in the slick for a moment but the wind/current shifted just enough to freak them out.  So it was a gorgeous day to be on the water but slow action even in the kiddie pools that normally produce lots of legal but not spectacular snapper and porgies.

 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
