September Success And Updates

I've rewritten this blog a few times. Many reasons, but September is the hottest month of the year with the highest chance of things unfolding incorrectly if anything is off. Nothing that a high level of preparation, strategy and determination can't change for a positive outcome. I believe you are looking to read about what makes me tick, how my business operates and wh...

June Activities and Update

June and July are great months for being in the Keys. Most of my June is booked, so I will focus on both months since they are similar. Each month I spend time writing these blogs to give you the most current information relating to the activities I offer. This information needs to be read because it is all designed to help you.

Welcome! Lots of info to go over. First, some updates to alert you to some changes. Grouper season has opened!! We have one more species to target!! My May is pretty booked up. Based on what I see, I do not want to offer any half day 4 hour AFTERNOON reef trips going forward. It can be done. It just will be hot and a fraction of what you would catch on a morning tr...

Preparing for Preparing in September

A little back story to start. I created my business to offer you the best things I know how to do on the water here in the middle Keys. I am a good teacher and I have the ability to do all of these ocean activities that are super fun. Over the years I have engineered systems to almost guarantee you have a successful outcome on the trips I offer. I built this website t...

Lobster Mini Season July Report

A rainy tropical wave put an end to my 49 day charter streak since we have reopened, allowing me to post an update. Yes, we have been busy, like as busy as we can handle for 2 months busy. I'll try to keep this report simple and informative.

The basics, we passed the last test today for closures. No, we will not close...
