People like Pictures, I like catching fish

After three trips where my cellphone battery died pre-maturely I have mental pictures but not real pictures to post.  A couple of customer promised to email me photos but that is pretty unlikely.

Yesterday, we did a combo offshore and reef trip on the Lady Catherine.  but we only put a handful of keepers in the box.  Offshore was slow for big dolphin even though we found a prize floater.  Lots of undersized fish.  On a full day offshore we probably would have found some bigger fish a little deeper, but  we can back to the reef.

The reef proved to be interesting.  There was a big shark encounter that blew wind up a few skirts plus some nice 'tailing.  One 26 inch Yellowtail and we lost a few that were bigger thanks to the bottom and Mr. Shark.  When your biggest dolphin and biggest Yellowtail are the same size, it was an interesting day. 

Prior to yesterday we had a few family fun trips and fishing 101.  Good fishing with 'cuda/shark encounters that made a few people's day.  Not lots of big bragging fish, but solid 'tails, Porgies and Mangrove depending on the location. 

It is just a bit hot out so plan on bringing plenty of water and me talking you into heading out early and getting back early.

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
