Mako Fishing Funament!

We got a chance to participate in a tournament over the past weekend sponsored by Bass Pro Shops.  Given our home port in Islamorada at World Wide Sportsman and our relationship with Bass Pro, this was a good opportunity to compete against some great anglers! Catching bait was a challenge for everyone and with the mahi being scattered, it seemed the blackfin were a popular target! Our boat continued to lead the pack, holding our own with tuna on deck but the surprise came when a sailfish hit our feathers that were meant for a different target! Prior to seeing the sail dance, there were many different opinions as to what took our lure but we’ve been here before…knowing the difference of how a specific fish fights may save you from making epic error during a tournament!

When season splits, we catch fish!

We have come to the time of the year where we are "in between" seasons and offshore fishing becomes challenging. Chasing the elusive dolphin that are beginning to migrate and waiting patiently for other pelagics, such as king mackerel and sailfish, to make their way to our coastline becomes a tedious waiting game! The frustration of the aforementioned, coupled with battling daily thunderstorms, is discouraging to most charter boat captains. These times call for creative thinking and a skill set that requires specific equipment. If you're not a captain that possesses either these traits or equipment, mastering the deep drop is impossible!

At Anglers Answer Sport Fishing, we have catapulted our customers into a menu that very few have ordered from. Boating such white meat as yellow eye snapper, golden tile fish, grouper and the monster barrel fish has filled our fish box more times than we can count- even in this gap of season that skunk most boats! Our state of the art electric reels bring our customers into the modern age of technology where there is less "fishing" and more "catching!"

Give us a call and let Anglers Answer Sport Fishing broaden your horizon with putting meat on the deck from the finest of menus!

What type of fish are you seeking?

Fishing in water 600 feet and deeper isn’t the same as dropping bait over the side on a shallow reef in search of common snapper or grouper. That’s a relatively easy task, but when you’re seeking fish that live in total darkness and frigid temperatures a quarter-mile or more beneath the surface, you need to be prepared.

Deep dropping for tilefish and grouper is becoming more and more popular by the day. Faster boats with longer range have now made fish like snowy grouper, yellowedge grouper, longtail sea bass, barrel fish, tilefish and others easier targets. The problem is, recently the government has placed parameters and restrictions on certain species of fish that are harvested in the deep drop venue. Such fish like Blueline Tilefish and Snowy Grouper have been closed until the turn of the year. This may not seem like a huge issue, you may think its easier to just fish for something different...but you can’t pick and choose what eats your bait when it’s a half mile deep! The problem arises when the fish surfaces. More often than not, the fish blows up due to the sudden pressure change and then if not vented properly (and sometimes even when vented properly) the fish dies. I know that it is imperative that our fishing industry preserves the sustainability of these fish but it sure is a bummer to have to throw a dead fish back into the water!

There are various deep drop techniques that will help you find these fish in 400–1,300 feet of water. At Angers Answer Sport Fishing, we use the finest equipment and tackle that is sure to put meat on the deck!
