Mid February Report

It has been mostly tunas for me offshore, but other boats have also done well with wahoos and dolphin. I haven’t been offshore the last few trips as the winds and seas have been substantial. Hawk channel has provided steady action with snappers, groupers and sharks. Hopefully the winds will subside this week and we can get back out to the blue water. If you’re looking to get out, I can be reached at 305-923-6977. Thanks, Capt Taylor Williams

April 30

     Fishing has been good the last week of April with the Tarpon bite kicking into high gear yesterday.  The mass of fish in the harbor finally decided to start eating. It has been difficult to get bites the last few weeks as the school was settling in, but they are finally ready to feed. Offshore fishing has been pretty steady with dolphin, with the majority of the fish being caught a good distance from home.  The gulf stream has been 18-20 miles offshore, and the fish are a little further that that. There have been some sails and tunas mixed in also. The reef has been great with lots of nice yellowtail and mangrove snappers, and the occasional mutton;    There is good current and dirty water which makes bottom fishing productive. The permit spawn is happening now. This is a great time to catch one if you never have.   Also the South Atlantic Grouper season starts tomorrow.  It really is the best time of year for fishing right now with so much going on. The weather has been good with some wind to keep the temperatures down.  The forecast is steady at 10-20 from the southeast for the next few days with little chance of rain.   If you would like to get out fishing, give me a call at 305-923-6977.  I had a group cancel this week due to family illness, so I have openings.  Thanks, Capt. Taylor

Awesome fishing and diving

Another great four days fishing and diving with the crew from Tampa!  We caught lobsters in the gulf the first few days, then switched it up and went fishing on the south side.  The reef bite was on fire with mangrove snapper, sharks, cudas and jacks.  We quickly filled the cooler with snappers and three big yellow jacks, then headed in to do some diving.  Hawk channel was clear and we hit a few coral heads in the 15-20ft range.  We found some big lobster, hogfish and also shot a nice black grouper.  It was still early, so we decided to head to a Ballast Key and have a few cold ones before heading home.  Big thanks to Rob and Britton for joining the crew this weekend!
