The Winds are Back
The winds are back!!! Unfortunately, it has been a couple of weeks of bad weather squeeezing in trips when we can. The good news is the weather has started to improve again.
The offshore fishing has been picking back up with more blackfin tuna and more sailfish moving through. It is that time of year again where we should start seeing more and more sails coming.
On the wrecks, the amberjack and snappers are still biting. Reef fishing is still good with a consistent yellowtail bite with muttons and groupers being caught on the bottom. The backcountry is still good for sharks and snappers and the tarpon bite has picked up.

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.
