I was looking at the fish box when we got in the other day and couldn’t help but think about how good we have it. It is amazing that 1 mile off the beach you can catch all of the species seen here. Blackfin tuna, wahoo, skipjack tuna, kingfish and bonito are just a stones throw away. I have been all over the world fishing and I can tell you from experience that we have a pretty darn good fishery right here in our backyard. The crazy thing is as I drive up and down the intercoastal waterway I noticed that most boats never move.

There are millions and millions of people in South Florida and to be perfectly honest with you there’s relatively not much fishing pressure for the amount of people that live here. Most people judge fishing pressure from the days Saturday and Sunday. People don’t really realize that during the week there is relatively very little fishing pressure here. Many times we are the only boat out there!

A lot of people who shop at our store mention the fact that they just love being off land without the pressure of society and I got to say that I agree with him.

For those of you who have boats and read this article but never bother to fish I would suggest giving it a go! You may just find that you really like trolling around out there and seeing a rod bend over with dinner on the end.

If you’ve never fished I need some assistance let us know!

This weekends fishing should be great as we are in full swing on meat fish season. Take your pick from the picture above and go bend a rod.
