Seasonal changes ahead

In the interest of providing an accurate fishing report, I wanted to pass the information about what's going on in our paradise...For the past few weeks, the mahi bite has riddled the waters along the east coast of Florida as well as the lower Florida keys. Frustration sets in when you know the bite is "on" everywhere but your hometown fishing grounds! Recently, in the past few days, the mahi have officially shown up in islamorada...but not the typical schooling swarms, instead, small pods of bigger bulls and cows that seem to have been running somewhat independent of each other.
 
With that said, sometimes, I get excited during the change of season and all I can think about is catching a specific species upon its new arrival to the area. As a captain, it's easy to forget that it's not up to me and the customer is the boss when on the "Selfish!"
 
For this particular trip, I met my customer who introduced himself as Bill from Vermont. He knew me by reputation but that didn't stop him from vetting me in a thorough interview prior to booking his trip. He was a smart man to do so and I'd encourage anyone who's looking for a charter to do their homework! Bill was focused on one thing and one thing only...TUNA! Despite the recent mahi migration, he indicated that blackfin tuna was his target so after catching 7 1/2 blackfin tunas, the entire party was smiling! If you're wondering what that 1/2 of a fish was, welp we had a bit of a shark attack when reeling in the last tuna...haha!

Is it Spring yet?

Sometimes I feel like we have been jockeying from left to right only to dodge the next "cold" front that this winter has brought us! This past week, we were able to find a small window to get out into the offshore bliss with some great customers!
In offshore fishing, if the captain is passionate about what he/she does, they typically take the time to find a niche' and/or educate themselves in a specific area that will set them apart from other charter captains. Having this area of specialty usually brings options to the table when weather or seasonal migration runs interference with the game plan that you thought was going to be put into play!
This past week, that concept came into play when the weather window began to close and the plan to shoot offshore had already been launched... With a slight side step, we were able to get off shore after flexing the time window a bit. Once offshore, we spent some time deep dropping and mustered up some golden tiles and black-bellied rose fish...by that time, the sun had passed over and the day began to calm and that only means one thing....ITS TUNA TIME!!! With the weather cooperating for the first time in as far as I can remember, we scooted over to a different depth and were able to slay some tuna that later served up as dock-side sushi for everyone!!!
For your next adventure on the water, book your charter with Anglers Answer Sport Fishing!
