Good news the weather gods have shined on us and we are able to do are outing .
Herman and I have decided the best way to go is if we all caravan from Jacks bait and tackle shop which is on Dixie highway right before you get in the keys meet up time is at 6:30.
For you guys planning on buying bait there are tackle stores on the way down that you can go to Dons Bait and tackle 90 N Homestead Blvd , Homestead ,Fl 33030 .
You can always pick up your bait at Jacks Bait and tackle where we will be meeting. Bait of choice and the easiest to deal with is Live shrimp expect to buy a good amount at least 8 dozen if the Mackerel fishing is good you might be getting a hit every cast.
Strips of Ballyhoo work well also if you can catch lady fish or pin fish behind the boat you can always strip them up and use them.
On the artificial side of baits Mackerel jigs work well tipped with shrimp also spoons work well.
It is a good time to use fly rod for the Mackerel a sinking line is suggested for this type of fishing and fly’s with a long shank hook work well, If you cannot find a fly with a long shank a wire trace to a fly will work also.
We will be launching out of SeaBird Marine 69501 Overseas Hwy,Long Key , Layton, Fl 33001 305-664-2871.
We will be following Herman out to the Mackerel grounds.
If you have any questions do not hesitate to call me 786-525-7034 or Herman 305-972-4209.
Please try to make the outing it is going to be a lot of fun.
