December 8, 2011


Today was a fun day for me as I ran the cockpit while my mate Drew ran the boat during a full day charter. We ran north 20 miles and got to our fishing spot right at about 8:15 a.m. We had just gotten our first two baits on the kites when our client Mark hooked a sailfish! I quickly grabbed a spinning rod and bait from the well and pitched it towards a second fish for another quick hookup. It seemed like we released both fish within two minutes! I reeled in the second kite bait and we ran a mile south to get ahead of the moving fish. We set six kite baits back out and Mark hooked another saifish, releasing it in 5 minutes. A few mahi-mahi were boated during the next hour, then we got another sailfish bite. All of the fish we were catching were moving between 130 – 150 feet of water, and there was about a ½ knot of north current. We ended up catching 6 out of 8 sailfish, 5 mahi-mahi and a silky shark. Not a bad day of fishing, and we were back at the dock by 2:00 pm!

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.
