Big Mahi and Lots of Kingfish On The Reef

January 17, 2017

As I write this I am sitting at the dock and have noticed the flags are standing still. Finally it is calm! It seems like the wind was going to blow forever, but I am happy my customers this week get to experience calmer seas and good fishing.  With all this wind, there has been current too, and that means the fishing has been really good.

While each day has been different, the one thing that has been consistent has been the Kingfish bite on the troll and on the kites. Seems like this one of the best kingfish seasons I have seen in about 5 years.  If you have never caught a kingfish, they are known from their screaming first run right off the bat.

Also recently, we have seen an influx of mahi on the first and second reef.  We have had some awesome fish pushing over 30 pounds lately and just when we think we have caught the biggest mahi of the season, we go ahead and get another bigger one.

For those looking to get out this week, I have several openings and some great deals starting at just $35.  Whether you are looking to take the kids fishing or put some meat in the cooler, we have great fishing for everyone.

TESTIMONIALS

What An Adventure!

I never leave reviews, but we had such a good time, I wanted to share with others. Captain David and his guys are top notch, you can tell as soon as you pull up that you have booked a great trip. We went out with them in April 2015 and we were told this was one of the best months for fishing off South Florida. The captain decided to fly kites (amazing!) to dangle baits so that the fish can’t see the hooks. I have never seen this, but it was amazing to see them do it. Within a few minutes we had a first sailfish on and then another hit. A double header! We landed both fish and the day went on just like that. We were watching the baits dangle on the surface all day.  Other boats in the area were “trolling” and weren’t catching any. David said it was because the water was so clear that it was important to kite fish.  I highly recommend booking them.
