Hogfish and Porgies are playing again

 Ldy Catherine in booking more family fun half days than anything else lately and luckily, the Hogfish and Porgies are back to normal along with the mystery fish that get new comers to the Keys excited.

This was a pretty good catch considering we had a few barracuda and big shark changes during the morning half.  Had quite a few not quite legal mutton snapper releases that would have been legal last year.  Good thing they haven't raised the Hogfish size limit or these would have been released.

Speaking of regulations, the kindhearted idiots are back in action wanting to "protect" more species that aren't in any particular danger.  This "legacy" style of regulation, you know getting your name on some piece of crap that costs working folks money while proving to the world you are a visionary, needs to be nipped in the bud.  If species are doing fine without regulation, then leave them alone.  Hook and line isn't depleting Hogfish, spear fishing is depleting hogfish, so I think we should make the Keys a no spearfishing zone if spearfishing start impacting my livelihood.  Ouch right?

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
