Catching fish has never been so fun
Fishing charters provide the best of all adventures, as you get an ocean voyage, learn about big fishing boats, engage with a local captain, and even later eat your catch! go
Fishing has been pretty good in general the whole month of August. It's really fun to go fishing in southwest Florida, whether it's here the Florida Keys or over around Naples and even Pine Island. I think the best thing is going on the Flats fishing trips where you get to look down and see things in the water. Make sure you know your fish sizes and limits as it is critical to understand what to catch and what to release back nice and gently. On top of your list might be trying to catch a mighty tarpon. Whatever your target it is good to have plenty of water and a big giant hat, as the sun will take over and make that trip not so good even if you're catching a lot. Nothing is worse than coming back and looking in the mirror and seeing a fried chicken wing! I started adding to my Tackle Box this year and have more lures, plus every kind of circle hook size you can think of. For safety I would tell everybody to make sure you have a small compass, just in case you lose power and are floating out in the Atlantic Ocean. It's nice to know which direction we are floating while you're waiting for help! Good luck catching.
Tell Big Pine Key kitty he has gotten tender loving care all week, and that you need to rush off. He will understand that you are traveling south and need to go early! We have to be ready for the Tortuga Party Fishing boat early in the morning. The Florida Keys yellowtail are biting big time.
