Hey All

Fishing in the Lower Keys has been good. Jack crevalle to 14", 'cuda to 4', lane snapper to 14", cero macks to 22", and an abundance of spinner and blacktip sharks up to 6'. Here's a sequence of battle pix with a 5' blacktip. Got him boatside in about 20 minutes and invited him to dinner. He declined my invitation, and with one whoosh of his tail, totally soaked me and broke the line in the process. I hooked 4 sharks in about an hour that day. The spinners were extremely acrobatic, clearing the surface by 3 or 4 feet with their jumps, twisting and somersaulting the whole time. They were taking 100-150 yds of line with their initial runs, and dragging me all over the place. Come on down and get in on some of this Lower Keys action!

Sounds like fun. I'm glad the wind finally eased up a bit. Where exactly in the lower Keys were you fishing?

Great report, great pics Randy (ltns, how are ya?)... looks like a Scupper Pro to me (fishin from a Pro automatically doubles your catch).

Thanks fellas. I was fishing in Shark Channel, about MM11 oceanside. This was on Sat 12/16, a day of off and on rain, but light wind.

Cap'n that's actually a Prowler13. My Scupper Pro is still my favorite boat for fishing, because I can cover more ground with less effort, but I do like the P13 a lot. I've been doing eco-tours for years; I decided to start doing yakfishing charters this season, and got the P13 for customers as it's more stable for newbees, and will handle the big of butt with more comfort. BTW Cap'n, I didn't understand your acronym (ltns)? Also, if you need a new moderator for the lower keys, I might be interested.........

Hiya Randall - Long time no see.  Love the BT Action.  Great to swap rigging stories with ya !   How's the Charter Biz goin?  

Broward Piers have been HOT here last 2 months with Macs, Kings and BT's as well as Keeper Grovers and Mango snapper pretty regularly with some keeper pompano mixed in, though the numbers in the fall run never really showed strong.   ....something to do when the seas are blowin anyway...lol

Gotta hook up one of these days, but the newest "Catch" will be born in Feb, so not till late spring / summer at earliest.

Nice work  and Tight Lines man !
