Lately we've been doing a lot of mixed trips depending on the weather. The reef has been the most productive area, but if there isn't a breeze it's been hot! Yellowtail snappers, sharks, jacks, barracudas, groupers and muttons have kept people busy lately. Most people are opting to catch some dinner and go swimming to cool off. Lobstering has been good also this year. Offshore there have still been a few dolphin and tunas, but it's hit or miss lately. If you want something big, there are plenty of sharks on the reef lately, and the tarpon season is still going also. Give me a call at 305-923-6977 to schedule a trip! Capt. Taylor
Its been rainy, windy and generally crappy down in Key West this past week. The tropical storm is out of here, but the wind and rain continue. It looks like it could clear up by the weekend and we can all start fishing again. Before the main bulk of the storm last week I had a few trips offshore and inshore. The Tarpon were more active, and the offshore fishing while rough was really good. Sailfishing was as good as it gets, and mahi were caught up to 60 lbs. We'll have to see what the conditions are like after all this rain and wind. If you are looking to get out I have days open this week and weekend. Call 305-923-6977 Thanks, Capt Taylor
This week has been windy (again) but the fish didn't seem to mind. I had some great trips with the Matts, and Burys. Offshore fishing has been slower, but the reef fishing has been good. The yellowtail snappers seem to like the wind and waves, and the inshore fishing has also been decent. We had good action this morning on the reef with yellowtail and mangrove snapper, a 40 lb amberjack on 15lb test, and a big hammerhead. If you're looking to get out, give me a call at 305-923-6977. Happy Thanksgiving! Capt. Taylor
Offshore fishing has improved since the last front went through. There have been more sailfish, dolphin, wahoo and tuna caught this past week by the fleet than previous weeks. We have been getting some wind and rain the last couple of days, but the forecast looks like things will clear up this weekend. The tarpon fishing has also been good. There are plenty of fish in the harbor, backcountry, and atlantic side.
I've got a bit of tweaking left to do on the boat today, as I just installed a new hydraulic steering system on the boat. After finishing the electronics, I noticed the steering ram was starting to drip from a corroded fitting. Rather than patch up a 20 year old hynautic system, I went ahead and ordered a new ram, hoses and helm. There's nothing like new when it comes to equipment. Hopefully this system will last as long as the previous one did.
I have availability this coming week for private trips and also a split half day trip Tuesday the 26th of April and the 27th of May. Split trips are for up to 2 people and the cost is $300. I can be reached at 305-923-6977 or email Tay87@aol.com. Thanks, Capt. Taylor
