Back from key west. , 3 days fishing , caught a wide variety. Fished wrecks , rock piles and the harbor.
The list , mutton ,yellowtail and mangrove snapper, black grouper, permit,jack cravelle,ladyfish,
Tarpon , barracuda, and a baby ( 35 lb est.) Goliath grouper.
Lost several fish to the wrecks. I went one for 7 on tarpon , Bad average for me compared to other trips.
Broke hooks, broken leaders , cut off by a line from another boat, wrapped around a marker bouy..
The only tarpon I got to the boat , Captain Paul touched the leader ( considered a caught fish at that point)
Took almost 2 hours, estimated 175 lbs . We cranked down the drag and broke it off, did not want to wear it and me out completely.
The thing I love about Key West , We never traveled more than 10 miles from the dock.
