Sailfish time!

Had two clients out today and we got lucky with the weather. After days of blowing wind and watching the weather, we caught it on a nice calm day. We had a double sail hookup and landed both! To top it off we had a nice kingfish bite! After a few cutoffs and a few landed we called it quits and cruised in. Great day on the water!

Another great day off Boynton Beach!

Today we had a fun couple from NY join us. We were greeted with great conditions as we headed out from the beach. The seas were calm but the kingfish were not! We had multiple hook ups and ended the day bringing back kings and enjoying the gorgeous South Florida day!

Congrats To The Summer Slam Series Champion Rob Rodriguez!

Rob wins the $800.00 EKFT championship ring from Turbo USA. He had a total weight of 97.2lbs for the 2016 series. Rodriguez had a great year fishing in every tournament of the series including the new Summer Slam Part 3 in Corpus Christi, TX. Rob caught the heaviest Black Fin Tuna ever in the tournaments history weighing in at 30lbs back in June for the SUmmer Slam 1. Part 2 of the 2016 Summer Slam series was Rob's greatest victory in his tournament career. Rob caught two stud Wahoo tipping the scales at 33lb and large Kingfish for a total weight of 67.2lbs.

Rob wins 2016 Summer Slam Series Part 2!

Despite having to contend with rough seas on Saturday, tournament anglers caught some great fish.

​​The Extreme Kayak Fishing event out of Pompano Beach featured the biggest fish ever weighed since the tournament trail began in 2011.

Wahoo on a JimyJig and Sailfish!

Headed out today with a few clients. The seas were calm and so was the bite like its been most of the week. However the bites we found were quality!!! Robert from NY landed this gorgeous sail! Rob landed a 45lb Wahoo using once again a JimyJig DV superglow jig. After two more sails were hooked and soon after lost we called it a day to get that Wahoo on some more ice!

Queen Snapper in the Keys with JimyJigs!

Rob and I headed down to the Keys to meet with our sponsor and awesome captain, Ryan, owner of Jimy Jigs. We took a few Accurate reels with us to deep drop, manual style! We took an Accurate Valiant and Boss Fury 400 both paired with custom Adrenaline Rods. We headed out on his boat Good Karma with the plan of finding Queen Snappers and Captain Ryan did not disappoint! After spending our day in deep waters we came home with 10 Queen Snappers and also landed 2 Snowy Groupers. If you want a hell of a Keys trip please book with captain Ryan.

Lobster season is open!

Had a returning customer call us from NY and book a lobster trip for him and his wife. Couldnt have asked for a better couple to spend the day with. We met at one of our favorite dive locations to setup for the day and go over some lobster and spear techniques. After everyone was ready we paddled out for what turned out to be an action packed first dive! Lobster, Hogs, and Grouper all came home for dinner thanks to quick hands and good luck of two great divers. We headed in to grab a second tank and get back in the action.

David gets first kayak Sailfish!

David made the trip South with his brother Rich, a returning customer from NY to try their luck and get David offshore on his first kayak trip. David even though it was his first time kayak fishing trip did great! He followed my instructions to the tee after hooking into this beautiful sail. After 30 min of fighting and several close full aerial jumps David landed his very first kayak fish! Fishing was a little slow for the day but we were happy to come back with these pics!
