Mid February Report

2192.jpg

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

Fall fishing is starting to show

It's still hot in Key West, but there is a noticeable change in the morning air.  A little less humidity makes it seem a little cooler.  It's a good sign that things are starting to change.  There have been more blackfin tunas being caught the last few days.  The tricky schools of small sailfish have also started to show. On the reef edge there has been a mix of snapper, mackerel, and the occasional dolphin swimming into the chum line. There has been a nice westerly current, very clear water conditions, and a light breeze. Winds are supposed to pick up this weekend,  and I can't wait to get some kites in the air.  Fall fishing can be fantastic the next few months.  Wahoo, sailfish, dolphin  and tuna will start to show up in better numbers closer to home.  If you're heading down this fall, give me a call at 305-923-6977 to schedule a trip.  Thanks, Capt. Taylor

Wahoo  caught on live bait

Welcome baby Ayla!

 After a long wait and what felt like an even longer labor, baby Ayla arrived on September 9th at 10:29 am!  She came in at 7 pounds 9 ounces and 20 inches long. Samantha and I are ecstatic  to have this wonderful baby girl in our lives.  Thank you to all of the nurses, doctors, midwives and family friends who have helped us so much along the way.  We couldn't have done it without you!  We can't wait to take Ayla on her first boat ride!  Needless to say I haven't been out on the water much lately.  I did get to take some friends from Coppertail brewing out during Brewfest for a nice half day.  We caught a few nice bottom fish in the deep water.  The weather was perfect for drifting live baits and the fish were on them until the tide changed at around 11am.  There has been some current out near the reef making the fishing more productive for yellowtail snapper,muttons and grouper.  Offshore there have been a few nice weedlines producing dolphin, a mix of blackfin and skipjack tuna, and an occasional wahoo.  I can't wait to get back out when we get settled in with our new baby girl!
