Aug 24


Duane and family came fishing yesterday morning for some south Florida fun. It was time to try their luck deep sea fishing while here on vacation. Our first stop was to fill our 100 gallon live well with a few live blue runners and small bonitos as fresh bait for the trip. We started our first troll with two baits on planer boards. The planers are designed to bring baits to 65 feet below the surface. These deep baits are irresistible to king mackerel, wahoo, and blackfin tunas. We also put out four top baits, each skipping nicely across the top of the water. Today the fish were biting between 140 ft and 350 feet where a nice north current was running. We fished the edge of the current break and caught a few nice big bonitos, three kings and a feisty 25 lb wahoo. That wahoo was a nice end to the trip. Hurricane Irene is due to stir up the weather later this week so this turned out to be a nice fishin’ day.

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.
