Offshore 23 May


 The weather guy lied a bit but we were able to troll out today in confused three plus footers to see what was going on offshore.  We missed two fish then boated these two gaffer dolphin.

Added a Blackfin Tuna appetizer trolling back in.  We had plans of fishing the reef but it was too sloppy for the crew, so I showed them a Bay Side spot and called it an early day. 

Winds are supposed to lay down Friday for a few days so we might get some more offshore fishing in this weekend. 

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.

Poor photos but happy customers



The photos suck, but that was part of a half day Shark/'Cuda trip.  I love bucket lists because there are so many people that still have a Shark or 'Cuda to scratch off.  Most of my regulars are caught up there, but I know one crew that is pretty ticked off at Barracuda still :)

In spite of my "trash" fishing adventures there are "family" fun adventures that involve snorkeling, beach combing and some fishing.  These don't produce many good fish photos but they do help with the bills.

"Real" fishermen have been slaying Grouper, Snapper and Tarpon when the weather permits plus getting a few nice Dolphin aka Mahi.  Tuna have been a little slow since I wrote about how good they were :)

The real good news is it is May, so you can keep grouper which opens up a few areas I don't like catching grouper when you cannot keep them.  May should also mean better weather, so with any luck today might be my last over 20 knot day for a while.

My last half of May bookings look pretty good and July is starting to get more interest, but June is lagging.
