Fishing Reports (where the stories begin!) January 2015 -
January 17,2015 First trip of the year with Erick and son Victor- was brisk this morning with moderate winds from the north. We went to a favorite Spanish mackerel spot and hit a decent one but action was hit or miss. Headed into the channels and had solid action of snappers, groupers, and was treated with 2 beast of the mountain!- We hooked a huge barracuda on a live blue-runner ( he earlier cut the fish in half) and then later hooked into a large lemon shark- both broke the lines... Yes- they were that big.. Pictured below is a red grouper with Victor..
February 23,2015 - Had a nice charter with Walt and his son Phil from chilly Chicago. They booked the paradise trip and the weather was spectacular but the fish were in a deep freeze. We hooked a small mutton snapper but the water temps were in the mid 60's. Fish usually aren't active when they are used to temps in the 80's and above. We fished real hard hitting inlets and even heading off sure a bit by the Fowey Lighthouse but the bite was a bit off. However, they were treated to a beautiful day at Boca Chita Key for lunch and soon after, we went right back out fishing again- Phil had a nice fish on but the giant got wrecked up. Can't wait to see them again in March. Tight line folks!!
March - April 2015 - Had taken some clients on full trip excursions to grill wade in the tranquil waters of Biscayne Bay
June 2015 - June had a fellow captain invite me to go offshore fishing and gave the inshore fishing a break. My back was aching but the fishing was awesome- Check out this video when we encountered a pod of dolphin
July 2015 - ventured out to the everlglades- The famous Flamingo boat launching area- you can fish the gulf of Mexico or you can go to the back-bays. I checked out both locations- and it was purely amazing to see what primitive Florida looked like before man invaded..
July 2015 Had a night charter with the girls and yielded some postive results.
August 8, 2015- headed way down south toward Key West- the Marquesas island- this truly is a fishing paradise. Amazing sights! Enjoy!
August 12, 2015- Had a very nice charter with Yvone and family- I sure hated for the trip to end-- the kids had a blast
August 27, 2015- changed gears and took a friend for look for lobster--I'll let the pictures do the talking..
September 2015 - did another Marquesas trip with the locals- what a fun time again! Can't wait to hit them again!
October- December- a great season coming to a close, I reflect on another great year God has blessed me and my family and look forward to 2016! I hope we can get together and make memories of a lifetime for you and the family! Happy Holiday! Its time to make Sicilian blue-claw crab sauce and pasta! Mangia!
