Hooray, Hooray, it’s the first of May, Grouper fishing starts today. Islamorada is the best place to fish for grouper. We have been catching and releasing a lot of them. Starting today we can keep some. They are probably the best eating fish around.
The first day out we got a couple nice black grouper and a scamp. The black grouper are the best eating of all of them.
Joe and Angie came all the way from Missouri to do a little fishing. It was windy, but they were pumped up to go. We went and had a great day. Angie got a chance to wrestle with some big fish with Joe looking on.
We started on the reef and were doing well on the snappers , when the sharks moved in. We were unable to get another fish to the boat and had to leave.
We got a report that dolphin were in the shallow water and headed out. We managed a nice catch of dolphin up to 18lbs. We also picked up one blackfin tuna and a barracuda.
Had a great day with the newly weds and there children. We had a lot of fun with barracuda, cero mackerel and a nurse shark.
5-17 Missed a week rebuilding a transmission. Had a good day today and was happy to be back. We got a bunch of dolphins and a couple of skipjack tuns.
Had a great couple of days. A large variety of fish, plenty of snappers on the reefs, shallow water blackfin tuna and plenty of mahi mahi.
What a great day. The weatherman missed the forecast and the day was great. We ended up 2 fish short of the mahi limit, got some blackinfin tuna and a sailfish for Skinny, Frank and Todd.
On their second day we stayed on the reef in the morning. 2 nice sized
s and a beautiful black grouper and 20 some yellowtail snappers were boated.
We had ballyhoo in the chum slick , so we threw a net and we had fresh sailfish bait. We found 5 of them and one decided to take a fresh ballyhoo. Todd got his first sailfish, what a beautiful thing.
