The weather has been hot, but perfect lately. The fishing has been a little slow. We met up at the Inlet Marina and decided to go a little further out and try for some Dolphin. We slow trolled a weed line and caught our fish. There was a little bit of action. I even got to get into the mix and got to catch a decent fish. We were using light tackle which made it even more interesting. We did a few bottom drops at a couple of different spots. Seabass was the only thing biting, seems to be the norm lately.
It was a great day today. Great fishing and great people! thanks Jose for fishing with me again! I always enjoy our trips!

The weather has been nice the last few days. The winds are calm and the ocean is flat. The visibility is still dirty and there is another big swell on the way. I picked Jesse, Kevin, Alex, and Jason up at Capt. Hiram’s in the morning. We caught plenty of small croakers then headed towards Bethel Buoy. There were small Sardines on the buoy. They were good enough for our share of Kingfish. We slow trolled the ledge and caught 7 or 8 Kings before we moved on and fished the bottom.
Once we started to bottom fish, they were catching Seabass one after the other. Jesse caught three Red Snapper, Two of the three would of been keepers. Alex caught a keeper Mangrove. We fished a few spots from 90ft to 60ft. Along the way we came across a log that had some juvenile Dolphin. We played for a bit catching and releasing. Overall it was a good day. A cooler full of fish, good laughs, and Rednecks!!! Thanks Jesse, Kevin, Alex, and Jason it was a pleasure fishing with you guys. Hope you guys had a great time as well.

Gary from N.Y. The weather has been HOT! The winds were calm and the only breeze was when we were running. Gary being from N.Y. was struggling a bit with the heat. The bait was thick on the beach. Greenies and Sardines still holding strong. We fished for about an hour along the beach and no luck. In 55ft. there were some schools of blue runners on the surface. We trolled a few lives. Gary caught 3 or 4 nice Kingfish. We lost a big one close to 50lbs. It skyrocketed on a bait and we were hooked up! About 2 runs in to the fight the fish broke my rig. #4 wire. It was a big fish! We bottomed dropped in 90 and caught few Seabass and a decent dolphin, about 7 or 8lbs. There were two nice size Cobia that swam up to the boat, they wouldn’t eat a thing. On the way back in we played with a few more kings and called it a day. Thanks again Gary it was a pleasure fishing and getting to know you. Hope your keys trip went well!!!
