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.
