These two youngsters fished with us today along with their parents Scott and Lisa. We caught over 20 nice fat yellowtail while feeding more than we wanted to a barracuda, a bull shark and a Goliath grouper. Beautiful day, nice family and good fishing. Doesn't get any better.
3 way split today, all guys. Had a little help from captain Herbie when he found a long line flyer that had a lot of mahi around it. He called us in after he had caught enough and we got a good start on the day. We ended the day with 30 or so mahi and 1 skipjack. Lots of fillets to take home.
Long day looking for mahi. at one point I was 34 miles from home and wasn't really finding many fish. I got some help from another charter boat who had found a big school but it wasn't till after noon that we found a decent school. Needless to say we were a little late getting home.
Adam and Jason with a double header of nice mutton snapper. 2nd trip this week for them, their family and friend. We also caught a bunch of yellowtail and vermilion snapper. more satisfied customers fishing on the Kaykiv.
Carson and his friend from Texas holding a couple schoolies. Carson and his dad has seen some great days on the kk so they understood a slow day can happen. They had more than they could eat for dinner tonight and know the next trip will another great fishing day
We caught this nice 25 lb mahi along with 40 schoolies today. Out with us were Penny, Al, Jason, Adam and Mike down from Roanoke looking to take some mahi back home. It was no problem at 24 miles where we found some huge schools. They are fishing again on Friday but we plan on doing the reef and deep drop thing.
Kevin, Russ and Adam were on board today's charter and although it took a little more of the day we limited out again. The mahi weren't eating as well as yesterday and we would only catch a few out of each school but when it was time to head back, we had 30. Russ is already planning his return.
Last day with my fishing friends of 20 years. Bob, Rick, Brian and Doug had another great Mahi day. Joe went home yesterday so we could only catch 40 mahi and we had close to that by 10 am. We looked for larger fish but there have been very few caught this week. Another great day on the kk.
Debra, Carlos and their family went out with us yesterday. A couple of them had gotten seasick on another boat a couple days before and they wanted to stay on the reef in the calmer water the day we went out. We yellowtailed to start and caught 15 or so even though the conditions we not great. After that we went out to a vermillion spot and caught around a dozen nice verms. no one got seasick and everyone had a great time.
After spending a week recovering from surgery, I was finally given the ok to go fishing again. I had return folks today from central fl that are in the citrus packing business. We spent the day catching mahi and ended up with close to 40 schoolies and 5 happy guys. Thanks Tom see you next year.
Tony, Wendy, Lotta and Lisa were looking for something other than mahi so we started with the yellowtail and went to deep dropping after that. We did well on both with 20 or so tails and vermilions, porgies and yellow eyes from the deep. Beautiful day and fun people.
Had 2 couples from the west coast of Florida on board today. We had over 35 mahi in the box by 10:30. Looked around for some big fish and then decided to run to the reef and yellowtail. We caught a few and per their request went home early to clean the fish and get them on the road before the traffic got too bad.
Seems like a long time but it's only been a couple weeks that the wind was blowing and the mahi were hard to find. Today the ocean was flat and the mahi were everywhere. Lots of schoolies with a few bigger ones mixed in.
School after school of mahi mahi, so many that I had to drive away from the last school because I knew we were at our limit. Hard to believe that 4 days ago it was difficult to catch a dozen in a full day of fishing We had Chris, Kenner, Joe and Greg from Memphis and Atlanta out today and I sent them home with a ton of fillets. More happy clients on the KKIV.
