Firstly, a Happy Christmas and a Good New Year to all our past, present and future customers at Fish the Dream. I hope I’ve made a few dreams come true and I’ll do all I can to make new ones come true.
Weather – back in the UK this sucks big time! Never seen so much deep snow and low day time temps.
As someone said, global warming where is it I want to go. Even had a few cold fronts in the Keys. If they aren’t too long it just fires up the fish and makes them move to find warmer water. With our boat it is always possible to go further offshore and find warmer water and fish.
Bach to blog title, the thing I love about the Keys is it’s always possible to fish despite the winds. It was on on such day recently, to get out of the wind, we went up a mangrove system. As regulars will know, I always like one big rod down in the Keys – there are some VERY big fish in very shallow water. With a live bait down, Brian sat it out while the rest of the party were having fun with the normal run of smaller fish in the mangroves. Then Brian shouts “fish on” and something very large starts to drag him around the mangroves. We had to up tie off and follow. After a very hard fight we got the fish to the boat, a huge sting ray well into the 100s possible 150+. Well done, Brian, and it’s always nice to prove a theory right.
We have managed to keep our prices down with no price increase for 2011. So, don’t just dream, come and Fish the Dream!
All the best again,
Rodney and Helen
