August 2018 Outlook

Here we are into August coming out of perhaps the nicest July I have ever seen here in the Keys.  August has a lot to offer, but it is all about being prepared and playing the heat and day to day conditions.  The past month I have had many conversations with customers that ask me what the weather is going to be like a month, a week or 4 days ahead of their scheduled trip.  I don't know.  I hav...

July Outlook 2018

If you missed fishing in the Keys in June then you missed out on some outstanding catching!!  July brings some changes good and less than ideal, so I have a lot to talk about. If you read my last blog or checked my rates, then you have seen there is a new boat coming into service for early July.  It ha...

June Fishing Report, Lots of BIG News!

Never have I missed a monthly report, but May fell away from me for good reasons.  May was an excellent month for all the types of fishing I offer and I kept very busy despite an abundance of rainy and windy days.  Conditions were often close to no go and luck played into my hands many times, but we got all but a few scheduled trips in with the exception of the passing of TS Alberto on Memorial ...

April 2018 Report…….Awesome!!!!

Here we are wrapping up an incredible beyond incredible Spring Break and rolling into another busy month full of fishing and adventure opportunities.  Thank you to all my customers for keeping me on the water every day having run 32 trips in March...yes, just me!  We had all good to excellent trips.  As always, conditions and my crew determine where we go and what we do.  The nicer the weather...

March 2018 and Spring Break

We just finished a warm February and we are heading into the March Spring Break transition. Right now we are deep into some great fishing opportunities and Spring never disappoints with the opportunities of getting in on a wide variety of adventures. It is just a matter of figuring out what your group wants to do and having the right conditions to get it done! It’s difficult to predict what we w...

February 2018 Outlook and Update

Turn the page and we are on to February!  It is a big deal here because each month we are better off than the last, stronger than before and get a little further from where we started.  Where we are in relation to how far we have come from the storm is a positive.  Everything is falling in line for better and better things to come.  More businesses are open, more is available for our visitors ...

January 2018

Often I find it difficult to find a topic to begin a blog because I am technically writing about the future with the knowledge of what is currently happening.  The fishing is pretty good, so maybe a local status update and some operational information would be most helpful.  Fishing report at the end. Certainly you are all aware we had a historic cat 4 hurricane roll through here less than 4 ...

December 2017 Update

When I think of December many thoughts come to mind.  So many things are happening, big changes are coming and it all culminates with a busy holiday week to finish the month and year.  Thankfully, the weather has been warm here and many opportunities wait for you to take advantage of.  From fishing to snorkeling to nearly anything you can think of, now is a great time of the year to give yourse...

Newvember 2017 report and outlook

A new month is approaching and November brings good changes.  I think we just saw our last tropical system for this year/season and hopefully the weather becomes a little less abrasive.  Our local water temperatures before the storm were in the low 80's and following this tropical storm we are in the low 70's.  That's a big change!!  This should trigger a rapid migration of fish from the north...

October 3 Update, Hurricane Info and More

Today is a new day in the Keys.  Not because it is a new month or season, but each day we end we begin the next day better off than the day before.  We are fortunate to be attached to the continental United States and the help and resources are lifting these islands back up quickly.  From the Red Cross to the National Guard to hundreds of church groups helping locals clean up, collectively, the...
