The month of July has been nothing but stellar. Stellar fishing offshore, stellar fishing on the reef, stellar fishing at the bridges and backcountry.
You cannot go wrong.
Offshore we are catching anywhere from 4lb to 15lb. Mahi. This is anywhere from 600-1200 feet on the weed lines. Wahoo, Marlin, Mahi are all showing up and there is a nice amount of action offshore.
The reefs and wrecks are holding very nice mangrove snappers, mutton snappers, lane snappers and yellow jacks.
Chumming, live and cut bait seems to be producing a nice amount of fish.
The bridges at night are a pretty much guarantee for big mangrove snappers.
Shrimp, Pinfish or cut bait brings the fish to the boat.
Florida Keys Mini Lobster Season was an amazing success.
We had a total of 10 guys and 2 Boats.
We limited out both days by 1:00 p.m. and celebrated over at our favorite place, Geiger Key Marina.
That brings us to the opening of regular lobster season.
Opening August 6th. The numbers look very healthy and the sizes we are seeing and harvesting are indeed a beautiful sight.
August and September are going to be great months here in the Florida Keys.
Hope to get y’all out on the water.
