First Real Front of the Year

We had an afternoon half day yesterday on the Lady Catherine and the winds had. just shifted to the Northeast.  With the shift the ocean side gets less sporty which is great for the Lady Catherine which is docked on the ocean side.

The trip was just a fun fishing trip with two young anglers doing the work and the women folk doing the chillin' and photography.  We caught dinner but the Spanish Mackerel and Ladyfish were bait for some larger toothy critters.  We boated a Blackfin and Sharpnose for on the water pictures and had a few larger sharks spin up and break leaders, but the big nurse shark which is a lot easier for a novice to handle was the hit of the 10 to 12 year old angler set.

Even in Hawk Channel we could have done pretty good on the Spanish if that was the plan and the mangroves and yellow tails were respectable for the area we fished to stay out of the wind.  The Ladyfish were a welcome surprise because they get aerobatic and make great bait.

I didn't take any pictures as I was more busy posing fish and replacing rigs with all the toothy critters around.  A few boats made it offshore and seemed to do well plus there were some cobia caught on the further than Lady Catherine can run Gulf wrecks.  So it looks like the Bay Side winter fishing complex is open for business.

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,
