12/3/18 December Full Day Florida Keys Fishing Charter

Fun day with Krystal and Jon visiting from Canada. We had a late departure as their flight was delayed. But no matter… We still crushed the fish! Saw a few tarpon early on but they were not responsive, water is still a little chilly but it was flat calm. We did get some nice blacktip sharks though. After that we found some redfish and a few snook. Still really good fishing reds on almost every cast on our artificials! Nice to see these fish in the bay again. Later on we ventured further out and found some tripletails which are fun sight casting too. My buddy Capt. John was battling a nice Goliath grouper and we got a picture of them. We tried some other areas for tarpon but still no luck though we did get a big sting Ray. We caught a few more snook in another spot and then tried one last hole where we get a few big critters on occasion and got a nice Goliath for Krystal ourselves to finish out our day! We followed one of my fellow captains in as he had some motor trouble but everyone got home safely.
