Key Largo Offshore Fishing
Did a late morning 1/2 day offshore trip with 3 anglers this weekend .Cold front shut the dolphin down that day. Found some scattered weed with some bait around but no mahi after trying even set a deep line with a downrigger got a 10 lbs king but that was it. Changed the spread over to target Black fin tuna (anglers were into sushi) and headed to some bumps out in around 400 feet of water. Close Flat lines went off as soon as we hit the first spot with a pair of Blackfins.Tuna continued to hit on every pass with Blackfin and skipjack tuna up to 16 lbs. Close flat lines got about 25% of the action but most of the fish were hooked on far lines (way Back) with Black and red Feathers being the hot lure. Most hook ups were singles but we did hit pairs at least 3 or 4 times. Constant tuna action on the troll not bad for such a bright afternoon.kept 6 for dinner and relesed a bunch.
First time offshore anglers from Texas
had a blast.
tight lines Capt Bob
