November 2020 Fishing and Activity Report

November is a highly anticipated month here in the Florida Keys because it marks change. The breaks in the heat are becoming more frequent, the water is cooling off and we are seeing the beginning of the migration of our winter species. The true challenge is describing day to day what the weather is going to be like or what species we will be targeting. There are so man...

Spring Break and March Funsies

It is late 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 great diversity 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 will catch...

The past few weeks my groups have been focusing on fishing the deep reef for yellowtail snapper.  It is more of an early bite, but when we have the ri...

Oh February, Pleasant or Punishing?

I was so happy to put January behind me for all of the weather challenges we encountered.  We had many great trips and epic catches, but the stress of juggling the constantly changing weather and keeping on the fish in comfortable conditions was wearing on me.  February begins today with what was a great forecast on paper, but heavy rains and howling winds clearly show that more of the same is s...

Christmas Week Update

Welcome back everybody!!  By the looks of the traffic on US1, it seems we went from nobody here to full on return to season in a flash!  It's great to have all of our winter visitors back, but our weather is handing us another big let down for one of our busiest weeks of the year.  Like much of the country, we have been experiencing record warmth and the party just came to an end with the arriv...
