This is such a great time to fish in the Florida Keys. Less crowds, no traffic, cooler weather, more fishing. This week we hit the water for our limit of lobster and as a bonus, 4 nice hogfish with the spear for dinner. Here are 2 great lobster recipes that Chef Debi wanted to share with y'all. Lobster Ceviche 4 lobster tails Sweet (orange/red/yellow) peppers small assorted pack Cilantro, onion, lime, orange, s an p Jalapeños pineapple saute lobster Chop into small pieces or use processor. Chop peppers small, cilantro, onion. Salt pepper to taste. Add lime Mix well. Chill. Lobster Huevos Rancheros small tortilla refried beans eggs cooked lobster shredded cheese hot sauce chopped jalapeno guacomole sour cream salsa heat oven 350 place tortilla on baking pan spread refried beans to cover tortilla shred lobster on top of beans crack egg on top sprinkle cheese on top add hot sauce bake 15 minutes until egg is cooked garnish with sour cream, salsa, guacamole. Enjoy! Now on to the fishing! We landed 2 juvenile tarpon using a small live crab. The tarpon are hanging around. Fished inshore a bit for grouper and ended up with a non keeper gag. It is snook season and we have seen and caught a couple back in Flamingo. I was there yesterday and also caught a couple reds. Catching large snapper in the backcounrty boat wrecks using live shrimp. Permit and bonefish are showing up and they are waiting for you! Get out and fish!

Sailfish, Wahoo, Mutton Snapper, Kingfish and Tuna are the mane if the game right now! Come experience what winter fishing is like in the Florida Keys. Quality bait is in the tank healthy and being fed to produce baits better than they were when I caught them! There is nothing better than seein a Sailfish eat a bait on the surface while kite fishing!Continue reading
Winter Fishing Update
November 26, 2022
The fishing has been very good in all areas. The offshore has been producing very well with catches of Sailfish, Wahoo, Kingfish and still finding a few Mahi. Live baiting has been key!!! Fresh caught live Goggle Eyes and Pilchards have gotten the bites. It the time of the year for BIG FISH and SCREAMING DRAGS! The reef bite has been solid producing great Mutton Snapper, Grouper, Yellowtail, Cero and Spanish Mackerel on Live Pilchards and cut bait for Yellowtail. I personally go out at night to catch the quality bait that sets Boneafide Charter apart and above other boats on the water. I cannot stress enough that great bait produces great catches. Give me a shout to experience the best the Keys has to offer! Capt ZachContinue reading

This is a great time of year to be on the water in the Lower Keys!Continue reading
