The early day started with fog and lots of it! As we safely made our way to the fishing grounds we couldn’t help ourselves to have a feeling we would get a shark. After catching a mutton snapper and some more yellowtail snappers reef fishing we moved into the back country. Fish after fish ranging from jacks, grey snappers, mackerels, and the last fish was a nice size black tip shark! lots of action on this half day trip.re.
Back Country Fishing
About the Author: KW Fish Charter
Growing up, I always looked forward to all water activities - whether it was swimming, scuba diving or fishing. I visited Key West and was mesmerized by the warm weather, laid-back lifestyle and the beautiful waters - where the ocean meets the gulf. I packed-up my things and moved to the southernmost city. At first, I held multiple jobs got on the water as often as I could. I was fortunate to have some local watermen take me under their wings and show me the art and science of offshore fishing. I quickly progressed from deck hand, to mate, to captain. It was a great experience and I still help them out to this day. Nowadays, I still love fishing and spend most of my free time fishing. I will go out and try different techniques or try to find new spots. In the slower season, I spend much of my time under the water studying the fish behavior and how they are affected with the tides and moon phase. As I progress as a captain and angler, I always try to push myself into more challenging situations.
