Blackfin Tuna Bite
March continues to be great for the blackfin tuna bite! The Gulf Stream has been moving closer inshore so the pelagic fish have been closer to Key West! Along with tuna we have been getting some mahi. The wahoo and sailfish bite should continue getting better till the end of April – so that is something to look forward to! On calmer days, our specialized custom trips we have had some luck with swordfish one of the most prized fish among anglers. The inshore fishing has still been producing some tarpon and the reef has been producing some nice size yellowtail snappers.
April is looking very busy so far so make your reservations soon!

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.
