Mahi Coming Over the Rail

It has been a very busy year and all indicates it’s going to stay busy.  Usually august and September are our slow months here in Key West.  This year already we have 3/4 of august filled and some dates in September. So please if you are planning a trip try to book your fishing and excursions as early as possible.

On to the more exciting updates.  The offshore fishing was good. We saw many mahi coming over the rails. Not many monsters but a couple for sure.  It seemed that most of not all trips ended up securing a dinner or two and having plenty of action. Last year august and September was actually better for mahi then in May and June so we may see that again.  The Fishy Business team fished 4 tournaments this year securing some nice trophies including biggest wahoo and 2nd overall ladies division in the Key West Marlin Tournament. We have had shots at some bigger marlin this year and had one on during the tournament.  As fishing goes we couldn’t get the leader touched before it spit the hook!  Hopefully next year!

The reef has been producing the usual yellowtail snapper and groupers. I try to recommend these trips to families that want more action or have younger anglers tagging along. While fishing the reefs or wrecks we have a vast amount of species that can be hooked. Snappers, groupers, mackerels, sharks, barracudas, amberjacks, and cobia.  One thing that we hear all the time especially from anglers that live up north is that they have never seen so many different species.

Looking forward to fishing with you.

About the Author:

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.
