Heard the sailfish bite is on down in the Keys. Heading down to fish with Capt Tom aboard the ONAFILE. Anybody heard any different or the same. Booked my flight for the week of Feb 7th. Taking Dad on his first trip to see blue water and he's 68 years old. Here's praying that he can take the fight. :eek: Hoping to take a run out to Cay Sow Bank for some Wahoo and Blackfin also.

I have been seeing reports that it's getting pretty good. I hope so, I'm headed down to fish with the guys from Over Under Charters on Feb. 4th. Hope you & your Dad have a great trip, there's no place better to do nothing but fish & relax than Islamorada.:thumbsup:

is this buzz kill russ?
Dante',
I've never killed a BUZZ in my life. I breed them, care for them and they slowly walk away from me in the night. If I'm lucky, they do it while on Poverty Beach with a PBR in my hand, watching my surf rod and seeing the sun come up!

Ok now that I got that out. I think you may mean someone else, but it is nice to meet you. Unless I guided you on a Upland Hunt with my dogs, I may have killed your buzz with me telling you about your horrible shooting, Don't know?

How long you going to be down? Maybe we can meet up at the Zan Grey for a beer. Our place is right on the canal to the big water! We're heading out on the 9th for a yellow tail and black fin tuna charter. But most of the time we'll be fishin with my buddy Capt Tom.

Russ,

We'll be there from Tues. 2/2 to Fri. 2/5. If your there then let me know. We're staying right next to Lorilei's, so Zane Gray is walking distance. Keep me posted & have a great trip.

We were in Miami this past weekend and we got out on Mon and it was slooooow. We had one miss and 1 blackfin. We didn't hear too many guys catching. The water was pretty dirty and there were lots of dead fish floating around. We ran S. to find better water so the keys should be better off than the Miami area.

heard about the fish kill. Also heard of an A--Hole walking in the shallows catching by hand Snook that were too lethargic to get away. What scum bags.

Apparently people were free gaffing struggling grouper. It really effected things greatly.

Glad to hear things are getting back to normal. It got so bad for us we set up to try some reef fishing and that was even a zero. At one point a school of 10 cuda's came cruising by on the surface and we tossed a live bait to them, they wanted nothing to do with it. It seemed like they were up top trying to get warm.
