Mahi have Arrived!
There is plenty of schoolies offshore right now. On occasion, we will find some bigger bulls and cows under birds or off floating debris. The Gulf Stream has been about 25 miles off of Key West so we have had to do a little more running then usual but it’s still about a 45-60 min run to get to the fish. Usually we see the stream come in about 10-15 miles offshore so hopefully that happens.
The reef has been excellent with big flag yellowtails and grouper consistently biting and of course the tax man – aka the big sharks – are around to take their share of the bounty!

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.
