Florida Farewell

I headed down to the keys last week to fish for a few days with the family and get the boat. We had a blast and head great site fishing on the flats. We caught a bunch of lemon and bonnet head sharks. The fish of the week was Patty's hundred pound lemon shark she caught on 10 pound test while sight fishing. We also had lots of jacks, snappers, and a bunch of other fish. Both boats are now safely back in Sea Isle City. It has been cold but the fish I'm sure will be ready to go very shortly. Pro Tip: When casting for accuracy, over hand is best. Side arm casting typically results in many missed opportunities.

Tarpon

Fished with Mike and Mike in Islamorada last weekend. I mixed up my days and said the monster cuda was on Saturday but it was on Sunday. Mike also had a nice tarpon sight fishing on the flats on Saturday. Sunday also produced a bunch of shark releases plus a bunch of nice jacks and snappers. A great weekend over all with nice weather! Pro Tip: Let sharks discover a bait on their own. However, if they are having trouble finding the shrimp, bumping the bait slightly sometimes gets their attention and results in a bite.

Sharks and Cuda

Fished with Mike and Mike in Islamorada last weekend. We had great fishing. On Saturday we had amazing action on the flats and we had over fifteen lemon and bonnet head shark releases. We also had a monster cuda eat a plastic bait. That fish put in quite the show. We rounded out the day with jacks, snappers, and blue runners. Quality and quantity. Pro Tip: Tilting your head from side to side with polarized sunglasses will help you see into the water better at certain angles. Try it and you'll see the difference.
