Last week Gus and the gang at GTB Boat Sales in Key Largo delivered my new 25 Contender. The guys at the factory outdid them selves with a few new custom options. If your near the Lorelei any afternoon and want to come check it out just give me a call. If you really want to see how amazing it is lets go fishing. Here are a few photos from Tarpon under a bridge to Mutton Snappers out on the reef. This boat will do it all, its my second Contender Bay Boat and my 3rd Contender since starting my charter business in 1989 and honestly they are the best boats I have ever owned!
Mahi Mahi fishing with the crew from the Islamorada Beer Company over the weekend in the Skippers Dolphin Tournament was a ton of fun. We had way too many laughs and caught a few fish along the way, our star angler was Emma who weighed in her first mahi mahi and her first tuna. Its always great to see a clild catch their first fish. We fished aboard the Beer Boat a 39 Contender & handed out a few beers to all the anglers in the tournament.
My good friend Vern and his wife Buffy got into town from Seattle just in time for a rainstorm that lasted a few days, but we manages to get out on the water and find some sunshine and a few fish... The fish are already wet so lets go fishing!
Its spring anf just yesterday I was out fishing with my longtime fishing client James who comes on a yearly trip from the UK, we have been fishing over 23years and I can honestly say we have caught so many great fish and had so many great memories together. We started out the week fly fishing for Tarpon in the backcountry and ended the week looking for the early migration of tarpon and were lucky enough to see the first ocean tarpon of the season yesterday afternoon. I wish I had a photo to share but we were too busy fishing! Check back for photos soon its spring and the silver kings are here!!!
Here is a longtime fishing buddy with his first Mackerel on Fly, we have been fishing together most of his life and he just has caught the fly fishing bug. Its great to see young anglers pick up fly fishing!
Here is a photo of the Hillbilly Deluxe a good friends 39 Contender headed down island as the sun was coming up.....
I had the chance to go fishing on the new GTB demo boat a beautiful 39ft Contender Fish Around which is a center console with a cabin. I need to buy a lottery ticket because I WANT ONE!!!! If you want one give Gus at GTB a call www.gustoybox.com
The cold snap hit the Florida Keys this morning and we had to cancel our trip due to an all day rainstorm and winds up to 25mph. We are going to get back out there tomorrow so check back later in the week for a fishing report... gp
Just finished up a few fun days of fishing with Christy & Terry Kirk who are great friends and longtime clients. We caught lots of fish and had lots of laughs, below are a few photos from our fun. If you can get away from the shopping malls this month give me a call and lets get out on the water...
I got a call from an old friend and client who wanted to surprise her son with a fishing charter for his 17th birthday, we booked the trip and he brought along his best friend for a fun day out on the water. Hunter & James started the day throwing the new for some pilchards and then we ran to the Everglades for a Snook & Redfish trip. Happy Birthday Hunter it was great to spend the day with you guys.
