We fished yesterday with my friend Greg on his friends 36 ft c console. We left stock island on Atlantic side and hit two big channel markers for bait. With sabiki rigs we caught some sm blue runners and 20 threadfin herring. We ran SW off shore and got in 90 foot on the edge just at the color change. We anchored up and put in the chum bag and also started sand balling. We put a live runner out on a balloon with a stinger rig. Ten min later we caught a 20 lb king. Could get the y tails going but the ones we caught were nice ones up to 18 inches. Caught about a dozen but the sharks ate just as many on the way up. We also caught 3 more kings on the spinning rods. We then made a move inshore and fished a patch reef in 30 ft off Boca Grande is.  Machine was lit up thru the hook and chummed. And wailed nonstop for an hour on everything. Lots of through back grouper to 15 lbs. some y tails, lane snappers, big grunts porgies nice mangroves and I caught a nice 7 lb mutton that’s going to the hogfish grill fir dinner. We also waded thru 40 sharp nose reef sharks although pesty are a lot of fun on light spin tackle. All said another great day fishing out of key west.

If anyone is fishing in or around key west and has room for me on a trip please contact me at 516-885-1932 or [email protected] Thanks

PS – I am now booking charters in Montauk for 1-20 people for spring cod in late March and blackfish in April if we get a season.
