   Yhewww! has it been hot! and the fishing has been pretty spectacular as well. This week we accomplished a little bit of everything, plenty of Snook around the flats to be caught with a few nice Mangrove Snapper and flounder in the mix to take home for supper. There is also plenty of action on the bay reefs with a lot of Spanish Mackerel being caught. These fish are an absolute blast to catch, such an aggressive and fast fish. I also like to make Sashimi out of the larger Mackerel, very tasty.

   There are a ton of Tarpon and also a lot of boats fishing them. We managed to jump a few this week but none have been landed. Konnor did managed to get a huge Barracuda while we were tarpon fishing, every bit of 4 ft long. Konnor did a great job of sight fishing this cuda with a lure as they can be very finicky, they usually just follow the bait around but getting them to actually commit and eat the bait is a great feat. 

   If you are thinking about going on a fishing charter this a great time to go if you are after “The Big One”, there is just so many opportunities to take advantage of. Come check us out at Keyes Marina to get booked or for all you fishing and marine needs. Catch Em’ Up.
