Over the Rail
The summer months have seen some decent fish coming over the rail. We have had a mixed bag of tuna and mahi offshore. The deep wrecks have been doing well with snappers and triggers. We have new regulations on tilefish and deep water groupers. No snowy groupers, grey tiles, or golden tiles allowed. Will have to wait for the season to get our hands on these delicious fish! Fish to look forward to coming up in October and November should be tuna, wahoo, and dolphin deep sea; and a continuing good snapper and grouper bite inshore. For a bonus, the lobstering has been great lately!

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.
