Alright this is just an RFI, a good buddy of mine is getting married. Looking at doing a fishing trip down in south florida or the Keys trying to get offshore. Looking in the Sep Oct time frame, what would we be looking at catching? Anyone have any recommendations on captains/charters/packages. We would like to get two days of fishing in if possible. Thanks for the info.
Mystic Rose, Black Dog (and others?) that go out of Castaways/Square Grouper
Stay at Sailfish Marina and charter a boat there
E Money might be a good hook up, he has a partner since you won't have a boat.
I think of mullet run a little later than Jim, maybe that is why I don't catch so much... But if it were me I'd think more Oct than Sept, at least early Sept is a lot like Aug...
Book a trip on the Yankee Capts to the Tortugas, or Pulley Ridge
Drive to Keywest, amazing fishing and premier bachelor party city.
EMoney is good fishing and leaves time to celebrate &/or recover.
1. Do a six pack charter to the tortugas. You would want to go with Capt Yuri (www.tortugasfishing.com) but he is booked a year and a half out. You can call capt Eddie Grifiths charters 305-587-3437 and request Shane as your captain. Shane is Yuri''s 2nd captain when Yuri takes time off. He is awesome as well. They do 2 to 4 day trips and you stay onboard and sleep in A/C cabins with a shower and fully galley.
2. Stay in a hotel and do day trips with any one of the following captains. They will fish hard and hook you up. They will fish the Key West area or take you to the Dry Tortugas and back the same day. They run 34-37ft open fisherman with multiple motor and get to where you need to go....FAST!!!
