Snappers on the Wrecks
The offshore bite is staying steady with blackfin tuna running most active towards sunset! The wrecks have been good as well with amberjacks, yellow-eye snapper, American reds and vermilion snappers being most of what we catch.
In the backcountry, the shark fishing has been very good. The blacktip sharks and lemon sharks have been easily excitable with long runs and toothy grins to make some good pics!
It’s starting to get busy give us a call for tarpon and mahi season it is just around the corner!

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.
