I just thought drop a note and let everyone know whats happening in this part of the world. went bottom fishing with friends early in the week and had an incredable varity of fish, grouper, jacks snapper, and a few I couldnt identify. The sailfish have moved down here from West Palm and the boats off of islamarada released over 100 on tuesday. I went out today with Rich from Capt T,s Bait and Tackle in Bayport and we had over 40 Spanish Mackerel in about 4 hrs. Rich dragged his 25 ft. Key West down for the winter. We are going out tomorrow for dolphin and sails. First I have to put in some drag washers after dealing with these little torpedos today. Weather was around 80 degrees with a 5 mph breeze today with more of the same promised for Monday. Eat your hearts out.

Spygull,

Thanks for the post. I'm flying down Wednesday for a couple of days of Sail fishing. I'll be in Key Largo at the Ocean Reef Club, slightly north of Islamorada. I usually go down 2-3 times a season (I'll be back over President's week) Anyway let me know how you do tommorrow.

I was there from 12/26-1/2 and stayed in Key Colony Beach which is south of where you are by about 28 miles. Fishing was great! Fished the gulf one day, Spanish mackeral, 3 Cobia, Blacktip sharkthat broke off and 1 breakoff that was probably a large grouper. Devil Rays jumping about 8 ft. out of the water, what a sight. Everything was on light tackle, mackeral were on Penn 4500 spiner, what a blast for my 10 year old. Dad handled the Cobia which where in the 35-40 pound range.
Another fast trip on the ocean side on the reef and did ok, 1 keeper grouper and lots of grunts. This was a spur of the moment trip only for 2-3 hours.
All in all was probably one of the best trips we had.

You guys must be getting a kickback from the airlines, you have my mouth watering for some Keys fishing.
Guess I'll go over to the Southwest Air site and check a few flight prices ! :)

Hey Stiper,
I would book online and use the promo flight. Fiy on M,T or Sat. Leave McAthur at 650 am 1 stop in Orlando and layover for 45 minutes. Arrive in Fort Lauderdalr at 12. Return on 4:15 flight nonstop to McArthur. $ 116 rounf trip. Leave and reutrm before 2/28 I think the promo is good for. Lots or websites for info. Fly cheap but hold onto your socks for lodging. What ever it is go for it you won't be dissappointed.
Tight lines.

Check JetBlue - excellent prices - beats just about everybody else. I don't know if they go into the Keys - but I know they go into Lauderdale & I believe Miami.
You could always arrange transport from there.
