South East winds again today due to impending cold front that we expect to get tomorrow. Every time the wind goes SE we have been catching  dolphin offshore. Today was no different. Nice Weed line and a slow pick of dolphin.

Unfortunately, we lost the biggest fish of the day. It was a bull dolphin
about 20-25 lbs.
The fish ate an artificial lure instead of a bait. The artificial lures are good for small dolphin, but generally speaking you don't want the big fish to eat them. They tend to get lip hooked on the artificial, while they tend to swallow the baits and get gut hooked. Less chance of pulling the hook  when they are hooked deep.

 Dolphin like to jump a lot, which is why they are so spectacular to catch. This big bull put on a great show and jumped over a dozen times before the hook pulled. The angler was doing a great job, no fault to him. Sometimes they just get off. I guess it just wasn't it's day to die.

January 18th, 2019

Nice afternoon trip today. Weather was probably the prettiest day of the week. Calm and sunny. Fishing was not red hot, but we managed to get more than enough for dinner. The first fish of the day was this nice sized Cero Mackerel. The Cero is a "Tropical" member of the Mackerel family. I don't think the even get them in Miami, judging by how unfamiliar even South Florida customers are with them. They are the best eating of the Mackerel also. Firm, white meat. This is a fairly big one as they only get up to about 12-13 lbs. World Record is around 15 or 16lbs.

Floating debris I ran over on charter fishing trip on the Reef near Key West

This was the "not so fun" part of my day! This was floating just under the surface and I ran it over on the way home on the edge of the reef.  It got wrapped up in the props big time. It is part of a net with stainless wire intertwined in the ropes. That means you can't cut it out with a knife. I had to jump over and spin the prop until I could loosen it enough to loop it over the blades. It would have been a very long slow ride home otherwise.

 

January 14th, 2019

Spent most of our day offshore looking for a Tuna or a Wahoo. Weather started out nice, but a fairly mild cold front gradually pushed through during the course of the day. It got colder,(65') and windy as the day went on. We had a few bites which might have been Tunas, never had a bite of anything I think was a Wahoo. We did manage to catch our limit of King Mackerel again and one lonely yellowtail snapper and released some bonitos. I have the same couple tomorrow and we're going to look for  a Shark. Then maybe try for a Wahoo or Tuna again.

January 13th, 2019

We got our limit on Kingfish again today and released a bunch more, then headed offshore looking for Dolphin, (Mahi). Found some floating debris and some weed lines and got some nice Dolphin especially for mid-January. Seas were much calmer today as compared to yesterday.

January 12th, 2019

Got our limit on King Mackerel today,(2 per person) and released a few more. I wanted to go offshore looking for Mahi afterwards, but it was surprising rough offshore and we opted to fish the reef instead to keep it comfortable for all involved

Tough Day Today

Went looking for Yellow Tail Snapper for Dinner. The Snapper where and biting just fine, problem was the sharks were there too.

The "Tax man" as they're called was getting about 9 out of 10 snappers. It didn't leave us much. We made 3-4 moves , but everywhere we went it was the same story

January 8th-10th, 2019

No fishing for a couple days

Took a quick trip to my hunting camp up in Glades County. Saw a lot of hogs and hit 2, but lost the trail and did not recover either. Hate to shoot something and not use it, but fortunately a dead hog is good for the environment even if you don't recover it. Weather was spectacular, but a bit chilly for someone that has been living the tropical life for almost 40 yrs. Still had a great time

View from Hunting stand when I"m not out fishing on charter boat Southbound
This is the view in the morning from one of my tree stands.
Didn't get a shot at a Hog this morning. Saw a big one, but he scented me and took off.
Watched a small heard of deer for about an hour. Spectacular morning

 

Visitor to my hunting camp when I"m not out on Charter fishing trip
Had a visitor for dinner.
Raccoons and Possums are common around the camp.

Moring temp at the hunting camp
Now I know I'm not going to get much sympathy, actually, probably none at all,
but after being in Key West for almost 40 yrs, (which in itself is amazing),
 40 degrees is pretty cold by my standards. Glad it's only a once or twice a year thing so I can enjoy it.
I would not want to have to deal with it or lower temps on a regular basis.

Yea, I know.........I'm spoiled

 

 

 

January 6th, 2019

Finally Got some "normal" January weather! Cool North wind, relatively cool temps, (low 70's) and some good reef fishing.

Caught this 43lb Kingfish on 20 lb spinning tackle using a live blue runner for bait.

January 5th, 2019

Unfortunately, this time of year, when you have a perfectly beautiful warm sunny day such as we had yesterday, it is usually followed by a cold front. The day before the front is usually the nicest. This front wasn't too bad and tomorrow will be cooler and dryer, but not cold. Highs should be in the mid 70's tomorrow. Not too shabby for early January!

Cold Front approaches Key West as we head out for charter fishing trip

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We slept in today so everyone could enjoy New Years Eve and the fishing trip. We left at noon and tried to get some live bait. Bait has been extremely difficult to find this year and unfortunately today was no exception. We anchored and put out some chum in an area where another boat claimed to have seen a good school of Ballyhoo yesterday. All we saw were Hound fish. We caught a couple of Yellowtails and went to trolling.

We were hoping the Back Fin Tuna would bite just before sunset and the did. Not crazy, but we got a few before we had to head in.

One of the "benefits" of a late trip is we
usually get a nice sunset on the ride home
 

 

Dec. 30th, 2018

Half Day Today

We stayed in close to keep it comfortable
for some of the group. I had hoped to head
offshore, but we opted for the calmer
waters over the better fishing areas.
Sometimesyou have to make that choice

2 Trips Today

Morning was a little quiet. Seems like it has been a bit slow in the mornings the last few days. But the afternoons have been busier. Released a few bonitos in the morning and caught some Mackerel and a small Dolphin, (Mahi) for dinner. In the afternoon we found a school of King Mackerel. We got lots of bites trolling very slowly, but when you are trolling that slow, (about 3 kts), it's hard to keep the fish on so you lose a lot of them. We kept 5 for dinner. The afternoon group was supposed to go last Thursday, but the wind was blowing 25+ and it was very rough. I'm glad we were able to reschedule for today. It was calm, warm and sunny. A much nicer day. The weather is something you just have to deal with, but luckily it worked out this time

Dec. 28th, 2018

Fishing was a bit strange today. Started out good. Caught a bonito and a nice Black Fin Tuna right off and then nothing. Not just for us, but from all the boats I was talking to on the radio, it seemed the bite just shut down for a couple of hours. Then, just before it was time to come home and probably having something to do with the switching of the tide, the fish started to bite again. We ended up with some quality fish, a big Black Fin Tuna and a Sailfish, but not a lot of fish. Just a few Bonitos other than the 2 "good" fish. That's the way it is sometimes. I wish we had more time today, I think it was going to start to get busy and from the reports I got from a couple of guys that had afternoon trips, it did. But some days you have to catch what you can in the time you have and that's all you can do

We postponed the trip

 

Dec. 26th, 2018

Half Day Today

A bit "sporty" offshore today. Winds were about 16 when we left the dock, but picked up to around 25 after the sun came up.

Merry Christmas to All

No fishing today!

 

 

 

Dec. 24th, 2018

Still cool and a little breezy

A couple of Bonitos offshore, but no Black Fin Tuna today.
 We didn't have a lot of time to spend offshore because
it was only a half day trip.
We headed to the reef to get some more action.
Got some nice barracudas and a couple Cero mackerel.
The Barracudas are catch and release,
but the Cero mackerel are excellent
eating as well as fun to catch

We were hoping for a few more Black Fin Tuna.
They bit well yesterday, unfortunately but not today.
We managed to get a couple.
We did get and release a bunch of Bonitos
 and got a nice King Mackerel on the
Reef Edge toward the end of the day

Black Fin Tuna are excellent table fare and stron fighters. Always fun to catch on Charter fishing trips on the Southbound

Released some bonitos and kept a couple of Tuna and a Kingfish for dinner in Key West fishing on Southbound

Afternoon

Released some Bonitos. They are in the Tuna family,
but not considered good table fare.
They can be a lot of fun to catch,
but we keep a few for bait and
throw the rest of them back most of the time.

Bonitos are fun to catch, but not good table fare. Generally, we only keep some for bait and release the rest on Key West fishing trips

Late afternoon charter fishing trips sometimes include a beautiful sunset

It was a long day.
I left the dock on this mornings trip just
before sunrise and we fished this afternoons trip
right until the sunset. It was a long day,
but I know how lucky I am to see
this as often as I do, so I really don't mind the long day

We got lucky and got a dolphin for dinner. Not a big one, but it's enough to feed the customers a great fish dinner
Got lucky at the end of the day.
Caught a "keeper" dolphin for dinner.

 

Dec. 21st, 2018

I thought it was going to be a bit "Sporty" on the water today. The winds did drop dramatically over night. Only blowing about 10-15 this morning. I did expect to see a large swell from the west. That usually happens if we have a strong West wind like we had yesterday. We did have the swell, but it wasn't near as large as I expected and the sea was relatively calm otherwise.

And the fish were hungry!

Dec. 20th & 21st, 2018

No fishing for a couple of days. Its blowing a gale.
Winds of 30+mph from the South and then the west
are preceding a strong cold front that is coming.
Winds are supposed to die off quickly on Saturday.
Hopefully we'll be able to get out and find some fish

 

Dec. 19th, 2018

2 Half Day Trips  Today

Mostly Reef Action this morning! It was a trip with a bunch of interruptions.
Customers forgot their food  so they had to run across the street to resupply.
We got off the dock about 30 minutes late. No big deal and I was glad to wait for them.
 I would rather they had what they needed instead of wishing they had
brought something they didn't have.

We had to stop for fuel on the way out. A quick detour that took about 20 minutes. 

We finally got offshore and we had just started fishing  when my good friend and former 1st mate, Capt. Brice on the Double Down called.
He had blown a hose to his transmission and was dead in the water.
He was only two miles  away so we picked up and ran over and gave him some oil and repair tape
 in the hopes he might be able to fix it. That took a little more than a half hour but, again, no complaints.You have to help other boaters when you can.
He could not get his boat fixed and another boat came out and towed him in.
He left his anchor on a buoy, which we picked up for him on our way home.
 With all the delays involved, we didn't get in until about 1:30 on a trip that was supposed to be from 7 am -11 am.
 I don't mind being late, (ask my mates, I usually am even without delays ;-)
I always want to make sure the customers get their full time.
My customers were very understanding and I really appreciate their patience.
 They were fine with the delays and rescue missions. I know some people would not have been so understanding.

On top of that, they were a fun group and I hope they will come back again soon!

Afternoon
Family picture time. Barracuda caught and Released in Key West

This picture has the whole family, Not all 8 went fishing, but it makes for a nice end to the day of charter fishing in Key West
It was a late trip, Supposed to be from 2:30 - 6:30
 but we didn't get off the dock until almost 3.
 Sunset was at 5:41 so we didn't have much time.
 We were hoping the Black Fin Tuna
would bite just before sunset as they often do,
 but it didn't happen this trip.
We got some good action with Barracudas and Bonitos.
We missed a few fish, but nothing I thought was a Tuna

 We enjoyed the Sunset and called it a night

 

 

Dec. 15th, 2018

Cold front came through this morning
I thought it might mess up the fishing. But it was a mild front. Some rain, (we dodged most of it) and not too much wind. Still got some nice dolphin, some Black Fin Tuna and Bonitos and one Skip Jack Tuna.

Black Fin Tuna ! Fun to catch and great to eat. One of the favorite fish to catch in Key West on a charter fishing boat

Tough Day Today

Customers were great and very patient
But Mother Nature was not cooperating
Fish caught in Key West with charter boat Southbound
Saturday, we had a warm SE wind, Nice lines of Sargasso weed
pretty blue water and some great Dolphin fishing, (Mahi-Mahi).
How quickly things can change.
Today was the pretty much the opposite.
We had a
Chilly NE Wind up against East Current and  a residual SW swell. It made for a very
confused sea. On top of that there was a ton of Bay grass all over the ocean
making it very difficult for 1st Mate Ben to keep the baits clean. (fish don't like salad)

Also the water color was not good  or clear and did I mention the cold dreary intermittent rain?

Oh yea ......fishing was pretty slow also.

Some days are just like that

We had a cold front come through the area on Friday. It was the first cold front of the year and we need the cooler weather to make the fishing "right" this time of year, but unfortunately it made the Black Fin Tuna stop biting , (for now). So we went to the reef and caught some grouper and mackerel for dinner.

Few Barracudas on the reef,
but not as many as I expected and not many big ones.
This cold front should "push" the bait out to the reef
 as the shallow water gets cooler.
That should get the action going!

Groupers, Mackerel and Kingfish caught fishing in Key West fishing on Key West charter boat Southbound
An excellent Dinner awaits! Black Grouper
is considered the best eating of the
Groupers we have in these waters.
 I rarely get to eat it because it is so good
I always encourage my customers to take.
The only fish I think I like better may be
Mutton Snapper, but it's real close
 and you can't  go wrong with either.

I've been in and out of town a lot the last few weeks. Just got back from a father- son weekend at the hunting camp with some of the kids my wife and I have been sitting for the last few years. They're growing fast and it was time to take them on an "adventure" in the wilds of central Florida. The Dads got to hunt and the boys got to ride on and drive a swamp buggy, shoot BB guns and Crossbows and see some really cool wildlife.

(which is good),  so it could change back any day

July 8th, 2018

Mother Nature said "NO"
Just a few Thunderstorms around when we left the dock.
Usually we can avoid them by going around to the north or south. It started out that way and we were just starting to catch some nice Mahi when they started to build up. I don't mind the rain so much, and my customers can stay dry in the cabin, but the big "Sparks" have to be respected. It got the the point where I couldn't see an opening between the squalls to head for. This squall started out relatively small, but built up as they can do. We were a couple miles away and the winds were blowing 30-35mph with LOTS of lightning.

Time to go!

No fish is worth the safety of my customers,
so we came in early
