Good Fishing Offshore
It looks like we are going to have an exciting year if this keeps up! Have had a wonderful offshore bite! The blue water is close – 8 miles offshore. We are catching dolphin (mahi-mahi), blackfin tuna, wahoo, and sailfish while deep sea fishing off of Key West. The snapper bite is still picking up gradually, and of course, the grouper bite will be good because the season ends December 31!
In the upcoming months, I hope to see more blackfin tuna running with sailfish and wahoo offshore. Nearshore, the mutton bite and yellowtail should be good according to past years! And of course, the Tarpon season is coming so book for the silver king early as we do have a bay boat and flats boat available!!! Hope to fish with you 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.
