Caught a nice mahi mahi, mackerel, and tuna offshore today. We left the dock and headed straight south to start looking for some good fishing grounds. The water started to look blue and very rich with nutrition so we decided to throw the baits out. Soon after a nice mahi or dolphin fish jumped on the hook. After a couple of acrobatic jumps we landed the fish. The water starting looking poor again so we reeled in and drove more to the west. Had three nice pulling fish on, probably a wahoo or barracuda.

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.
