Key West Fishing 02-02-16
With the winds coming from the south, fishing on the north side of Key West was nice this past weekend. King Mackerel were especially active, hitting the live Blue Runners with gusto. Capt. Tony, our expert skipper on the Coolwater, lead a client into the shallows to hook a fierce predator: a 225-pound Hammerhead Shark.
After a dreary day of rain yesterday, we enjoyed a particularly calm day on the Atlantic side of the Keys. Our savvy captains headed south from Key West to fish for pelagic species, with some nice success. Both Capt. Damien and Capt. Bill guided clients to catch Sailfish on our beautiful fishing vessels, the Coolcast and the Outcast, respectively. Bill's client asked us if we could lead him to finally hook a Sailfish. After a lifetime of unsuccessfully catching a Sailfish with other charter companies, this client was smiling from ear to ear after reeling in a seven-and-a-half-foot Sailfish on 20-lb. spin. On Thursday, conditions should once again be excellent for hunting Sailfish on the Atlantic side, with winds blowing from the east.
