Fantasy Fest and the rest of October

Fantasy Fest came and went but the winds are sticking around. We still have 15-25 knot winds out of the Northeast making it pretty rough around Key West.  It seems the clouds have  finally cleared out, and the sun is shining for the first time in 4 or 5 days.  It was a gloomy, windy week for Halloween, but we made the best of it.  I took the Overmans out for a 3/4 and had a lot of action on the reef with snappers, mackerels, yellow jacks, bonitos, and other assorted reef dwellers.  We did a few loops offshore in the rougher water and picked up a couple of decent sized blackfin tunas.  After that we came back and anchored up on the reef, caught some live ballyhoo and had more reef action on the live baits.  Last week I also took out the Debow family for a 3/4 day.  It was really cranking, and hawk channel was 4-5 ft.  We anchored well inside the reef line and had good action with groupers,snappers, sharks and porgies. We came back in to drop off a young one that wasn't feeling well and headed back out.  We hit 3 more spots, and caught a few more fish before calling it a day.  Offshore there are still a few sailfish around as I write this, and hopefully the winds will start to settle down soon.  If you are looking to book a trip for this fall or early next year, I can be reached at 305-923-6977.  This time of year fills up fast, especially around Christmas and the new year so try to book early.  Thanks, Capt.
