FLORIDA: Great Florida Keys Fishing – Reds & Macks!

Capt. Rick Stanczyk took his father out, Capt. Richard Stanczyk Sr., along with family friend and photographer Ron Modra for some Islamorada fishing.

They had a late start around 9 am, and got back to one of Richard’s old favorite spots around 10. They stopped to catch a few pinfish at first, which came right up with a little chum. We stopped in a runoff creek and caught a handful of nice trout as well as some jacks. Putting up a little further (upon Rick’s suggestion) they got into a huge mess of redfish! It was action every cast, some eating bare jigs! Probably caught 75 in total in about 2 hours. Also caught a nice bluefish on a pinfish as well as this nicer red .

After the tide quit falling we ate some lunch and ran out into the gulf. Not much happening out there, though we did see shocked permit swimming around, threw him a shrimp which he boiled on but wouldn’t eat. After this we ran back towards home and stopped at a favorite mackerel spot. Caught about 25 mackerels, with the little chum we had, and a nice one that was close to 8 lbs

Had a good bite on the shark rod though that we missed, and called it a day!

Gorgeous weather, some clouds and rain around though that didn’t bother us.
