October was Good Fishing
We had some good days fishing in October with some mahi-mahi, tuna, and sailfish caught offshore. Closer to shore, the snapper bite has been very good on the reef!
With all these cold fronts pushing through recently, we should have a good patch reef bite coming for the mutton snappers and big groupers!
Also, the tuna and wahoo should be getting very good as well! After Fantasy Fest, now its time to get back to fishing! The good news for us charter boats is the Key West boat races are coming in early November which usually brings more of a fishing crowd.

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.
