Posts Tagged ‘Florida Keys’
We had a very good first week of operation in the Florida Keys last week. We ran the Big Bite down from Delray Beach on Wednesday and arrived at the LoraLie on Wednesday afternoon. We spent Thursday cleaning the boat up and getting it into A1 condition for a charter that we had for Saturday. On Friday we picked up some live ballyhoo off of Snake Creek and bumped our way down to Alligator Light. One sailfish was hooked that ran off towards Africa performing jumps worthy of an Olympic medal. On Saturday we had a delightful young couple from Sweden fish with us. The sailfish were slow to bite so Captain Stewart headed offshore in the afternoon with a resulting catch of 5 Mahi mahi in the boat which they had for dinner at the LoraLei later that evening. The weather was perfect and the Seas were calm. The sunset at the dock was memorable for all later that evening.
