This week the bite has been very good. Caught plenty of snook and jack crevalle on the back channels to keep us entertained. The story of the week was the monster tarpon caught on Wednesday the 27th. After a thrilling hour and a half fight, Capt. Luis managed to catch and release a huge tarpon estimated at 85+ pounds. One of the biggest tarpon caught this year.

Tarpon and Snook at the channels!
Mayo 29, 2016
Beautiful day with flat seas gave us the opportunity to do some early reef fishing to target the tasty King Mackerel and Yellowtail Snappers. To our surprise, the bite was very slow at the reef and after no action at the reef, we decided to target the tarpon and snook at the channels. On our way back to the channels, we found a huge bait ball in the middle of the Bay and managed to fill our two livewells with a single shot. We were ready for the tarpon! Tarpon were not rolling at the channels, but we knew they were there! 5 minutes after throwing in lines, we hook up with a huge snook that unfortunately pulled the hook after couple of minutes. They were biting! Next drift, we hook up with a decent 6 pound snook that gave a good fight and gave us the first catch of the day. On the next drift we were able to catch and release a decent tarpon as well. We decided to go back to the bay to target the elusive jack crevalle to complete our Inshore Grand Slam but no luck. We hooked up with another tarpon that pulled the hook after a couple of jumps. Overall, a successful fishing trip, happy clients and happy captain!
Tarpon, Kings, Mackerel HOT BITE!
Mayo 14, 2016
This week's fishing was lots of fun filled with lots of fishing action. Saturday Morning went out reef fishing early in the morning before the wind picked up and caught two HUGE Mackerels with live bait. The wind picked up later and came back to target the tarpon. Jumped off a nice one after a couple of jumps. Clients took fresh fillet to a nearby restaurant "El Pescador" and had a blast. Saturday Afternoon had a nice mixed bag action releasing a tarpon, barracuda and snappers. Sunday Morning was filled with action. Caught 15 Mackerels and a tuna out of 25+ bites! We also had the thrill to see a HUGE Barracuda attacking two of our hooked fish. We enjoyed a couple of spectacular jumps by the barracuda on its full wildlife behavior getting its morning breakfast! Clients had a blast and took home some dinner too!
Slow Bite this weekend but still FUN
Abril 23, 2016
Slow fishing this weekend but still managed to get a couple of fish and enjoy the day with our customers. Nothing beats a great day at the water catching fish. On saturday had to postpone our fishing trips due to rain, however on Sunday the day was sunny. Went out for reef fishing and caught a mixed bag of bonito tunas, mackerels and barracuda. We then went inland fishing and released another Monster Jack. Had a couple of tarpon bites but could not keep them on the line! On a side note, after the Saturday rain on the morning, went out with a couple of friends for a quick offshore fishing trip. Caught two nice mahi mahis in less than an hour of fishing. Enjoy the pictures!
