Back in the bay

What a difference a week can make in the Florida Keys. From the wind and rain of last week to the wall to wall sunshine and 30 degree temps and light winds for this week. So sorry but that is the luck of fishing but last weeks conditions were not normal but we still fished and caught every day. First day with Billy, Steve , Nick and John we all decided to go back into the bay and yes the Goliath Grouper mark, getting the pick right was a pain but it needs to be just right. First fish totally trashed Nick the power of these fish just leaves newcomers stunned but I am sure some will be near 1000 lbs and you will have no chance at all. Second big one we won and Billy had a nice 100 lb fish  by the side of the boat, poor Johns fish was an other monster and despite two people on 80 lb on lock down this fish made it back to the wreck. Rest of the day was fun wreck fishing with cobia, grouper, shark and the rest of the general fish and good first day and two people just shaking their heads in disbelief.

Second day was back out the bay and some more wrecks and the story of an epic fight by one man. Poor John was just jigging half a ballyhoo near a wreck when his rod went solid a big a very big fish just wanted a small snack. What happened for the next hour was just pure fishing, man and big fish just watching John was amazing. He was going to win an after nearly one hour the fish was to the boat a near 100 lb stingray. The fight from these fish is just amazing and they can bed down as this fish did to get their power back when ever they want to just leaving the poor angler to do all the work.

We are offshore at last to day and the wish list is permit, amberjack and dorado well all we can do is our best.
