Two cool days November 30/December 1, 2021

I had the pleasure of spending two days with Chris from Indiana as a first time client.  Chris had spent a lot of time in Biscayne Bay in the past so it was cool to show him around again.  The first day we bounced around different spots and ended up bonefishing where Chris got his first bonefish in a while not long after we started bonefishing.  On day two we focused more on just throwing lures and that was even more fun.  The total tally at the end of day two was pompano, mackerel, bluefish, ladyfish, horse eye jacks, jack crevalles and barracudas.  Chris went through a streak of fish on every cast for a good while.  Winter is almost here and the mackerel, bluefish and pompano provided that today.

Sunday Double Header November 28, 2021

Sundays is the busiest boating day of the week and I don't like running two trips on a Sunday but the weather was chilly so I figured it would keep most boaters away and it did.  In the morning I had Dave from Idaho and he wanted to try bonefishing.  I set up on one of my favorite outgoing tide spots around Key Biscayne and enjoyed the weather, the conversations with Dave and we waited for fish to move through.  Just as I told Dave we would change spots in a few minutes a bonefish moves in and Dave hooks up landing his first bonefish.  Nice!  Things got slow so we wrapped it up catching jacks on every cast.  

My afternoon trip was with Mark from MD and he also wanted to catch bonefish.  The bay was largely empty still with all my bonefish spots open with no one around.  Cool!  But, they all proved slow except one that had a school of big bonefish move through but not eat.  Then Mark asks if there are jacks round. "Well, there are!".  I took him to the morning jack spot and there he caught a bunch of jacks and yellow jacks, the yellow jacks were a nice surprise.

Dinner and a shark November 27, 2021

 I fished with Stefan once before and he was back today with his friend Eugene and his 10 year old son Marlon.  They wanted dinner so we looked for pilchards but they were MIA, hmmm that stinks.  No worries I had plenty of live shrimp and they wiped out about 10 dozen shrimp catching dinner for several days and releasing the rest with constant action on yellow jacks and snappers.  Then we hit the flats and they each caught a shark before we headed back.  They're eating good tonight!

Black Friday Fishing November 26, 2021

Another two boat trip today and I had the girls, mom Julie with Rebecca and Amanda while the "boys" were in the second boat and once again they wanted to stay close to each other.  This worked against the boys as the girls outfished them 5 to 1 catching a variety of species such as mangrove snappers, yellow jacks and more.  Then we hit the flats for sharks and a few come in but don't eat our baits but one moved off and ate a bait from the other boat and the guys finally scored as the lemon shark kicked their butt.  It was hilarious and great to watch!

Thanksgiving Day November 25, 2021

I was hoping to take Thanksgiving day off and work the day before BUT my two charters for Wednesday cancelled, one due to weather and the other due to illness so I ended up working today.  On the brightside I got to fish with Scot and his family again on a two boat trip.  I had the "kids" and the other boat had Scot and his wife and we stayed next to each other during the trip.  The kids were a blast and they caught tons of snapper, yellow jacks and lost a few really nice fish, all the while giving each other a hard time.  If I have to work on Thanksgiving day, these are the folks to fish with.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Two Days on the Fly November 22/23, 2021

 I had the pleasure of fishing with David for two days for his first time fishing in Miami/Biscayne Bay.  Since we had two days to work with we mixed it up.  On the first day we had perfect November conditions with clear skies, cool weather and almost no wind.  On our first day David missed a bonefish eat and then the snook got nasty and he lost three snook on fly through no fault of his own.  As the king tide came up and filled the bay with about 3 feet of extra water I changed it up, caught live bait, pilchards, and hit some wrecks.  Oh man!  The live chum worked as it should and David was catching fish on every cast, mainly hard fighting yellow jacks.  Staying too far away were massive mutton snappers crushing the live chum, some of the biggest I've ever seen in the bay! 

Day two was the opposite witht he wind howling 20-25 MPH we hid in creeks and in the leeward side of points fishing for bonefish and snook and while we had some takes it was a tough day.

The snapper charter November 21, 2021

 I was with Kevin today and the last time Kevin and I fished it was an epic day.  Today, not so much.  fishing was generally slow with no help from the weather.  While November is our best weather month, we've had tons of wind, rain and overall tough conditions.  Today wasn't horrible though but the fishing definitely needed some help.  It seemed like the snook and bonefish were MIA and in their place were mangrove snappers and jacks and while they're fun it was not what we were looking for.
