No mad dogs but we did have 2 men and their wives from the UK on board yesterday.
Caught some yellowtail and had two teen mahi swim up to us while sitting there on the anchor. We did a little bottom bouncing after that and caught more yellowtail and mutton snapper. Didn't see a sailfish but caught a decent blackfin tuna off the top.
We cleaned the fish for our folks and sent them off to a great fresh fish dinner.
8 year old Char saw 2 really big bull sharks this morning while she was catching yellowtail with her dad on the KK. The sharks only got a few of her yellows due to her expert angling abilities. She caught her limit and helped her dad catch his limit too, all in a couple hours.
Nice job Char see you real soon.
Bob's wonderful wife set up a birthday fishing trip for him and today was his day.
20 knots of wind didn't discourage him this morning nor did my realistic description of sea conditions. He handled the rough seas well, catching a handful of mahi, a couple of triple tails and assorted other fish.
A good half day.
Brian and Mike bounced the bottom with us today catching a nice rack of yellowtail and mutton snapper.
We had the ballyhoo out all day looking for that sailfish but never saw one.
Mike said that they would be back next year in June for the tarpon and mahi bite.
Looking forward to it Mike, see you then.
Still windy today after a week of 20 to 30 knot wind but it is definitely coming down.
Shawn, Mike, James and Jim from North Carolina fished with us today and with the notable exception of James had a great time catching kings, jacks, yellowtail and mutton snapper.
we are being told that weather is finally going to get nice on Sunday, a little late for James!
Took this picture a few weeks ago. There is a lot of wind in that waterspout and we have a lot of wind out on the ocean right now. 20 to 30 knots off the reef at the moment..... had to cancel yesterday and today, may have to cancel Wednesday, but with all the nice weather we have had this fall we probably shouldn't complain too much.
Otis and his friends had me booked for Fri and the wind and rain gave doubts to whether leaving the dock was a good idea.
Going turned out to be the right decision as the seas were only 2 to 3 ft and we never saw a drop of rain.
These guys were so much fun, the fishing was fast and furous and the only casualty was Otis who never got a speck of sympathy for his weak stomach. Would have thought since he was getting married today maybe he'd get cut a little slack. Fun and more fun with a great group of people.
Grant and Nate fished us for the 3rd time on Thursday and although we didn't bring a lot of fish back to the dock we kept them busy.
Between the sharks, bottom fish and kingfish there wasn't a whole lot of time the boys weren't hooked up with something and they had a ball.
They are planning a Feb return to the KK. Looking forward to it guys!!
Two very enthusiastic young brothers (Nate and Grant ) and their dad caught a bunch of fish with us today.
We tried the Tunas to start but but only caught one so we headed offshore, found a weed line a proceeded to catch 20 mahi and a shark. Dad wanted to have the boys to see what deep dropping was all about so we stopped at a couple spots on the way home and caught grouper, tile, porgies and vermilion snapper.
Another beautiful day on the water.
We had Tim, Dave, Eddie and Collin on board today. They are from the Houston area of Texas and this was their first time fishing in the keys.
We found a 2x4 board at 14 miles and caught 20 mahi off it up to 20 pounds.
Stopping at the little hump on the way home on our 3/4 day, we caught some vermillion snapper and a 30 lb amberjack.
Tim is already talking about bringing his 2 older sons down in the near future.
Matt, Mark, Doug, Dave and Brian had a summer catch today on the KAY K IV.
We started with the tunas and vermillions but couldn't get a tuna passed the sharks and had to trade a lot of rigs for a dozen vermillions at the hump.
Found a weedline a couple miles passed the hump that had a lot of gaffer mahi on it and ended up with over 20 nice fish.
A beautiful light wind day to go with our great catch.
