Islamorada Key offshore fishing, Black fins, Wahoo, cudas, Robert Moore, Fred Hannon,

Feb 24th 2010

Last night I crashed at a house here in Islamorada, Key Florida. I met up with Robert Moore, Fred Hannon and their friends Chris and Scott from up north. The plan was to do some offshore fishing in the morning. The weather wasn’t so hot but we already had the plans.

We woke up at 6am to get out on Robert’s 23′ Andros Boatworks, a panga like hull. We got some ballyhoo and headed off to do some trolling. Fred had brought down some of the big offshore trolling Sebile Lures.

We got into some Blackfin tuna’s almost right away. The real surprise was getting a Wahoo on the troll using the Sebile in the mackerel color. A nice 30lb fish went into the box for dinner. We ended day using the same plug for cudas near one of the towers before the weather forced us in. For whatever reason they would eat the ballyhoo we had but didn’t want anything to do with the skipjacks we threw at them.

Photo notes: as you can see the skies were way overcast so the photos had gray tinged to them.
