January 2019 Report and Outlook

Here we are heading into a new year full of new opportunities and possibilities.  I have been sooo incredibly busy and fortunate to be so in all the right ways.  We are coming off our first real test, as rebuilt islands following Hurricane Irma, serving the massive tourism boom that comes seeking refuge from the wrath of cold winters elsewhere.  I hope the new and returning visitors see the amo...

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 ...

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 ...

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...

August 2017 Outlook

I want to start out by thanking my customers for an incredible July for the record books. I had 27 very successful trips and the weather and conditions were insanely perfect nearly every day. We're rolling into August now and we are pretty much on track for what we typically see this time of year. Things slow down a little and kids go back to school soon and we catch our breath a little. Fishing t...

Quickie Early July Update

I just wanted to keep everybody in the loop. I've been on the water every day and it is hard to get to the calls and questions that come my way. This is the best way to tell you how it is! Lobster Mini Season is coming and I am booked. I might add a second boat next year if this year goes well. No I don't know who else is open, probably nobody to be completely honest. You waited too long. ...

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...
