Mike Spaeder and son this weekend fished on traveling charters to the Florida Keys aboard, said Capt. Joe Hughes from Jersey Cape Guide Service and Sea Isle Bait & Tackle. On Saturday they nailed jacks, mangrove snappers and a 17-pound permit. That was Mike’s first permit, and on Sunday the anglers beat jacks, mangroves, mutton snappers and a shark, and jumped a tarpon. The plan was to do more sight-fishing that day for sharks and tarpon, but clouds and wind made that difficult. Still, the trips caught a ton of fish, and fishing for permit and tarpon has been good aboard this season, so far, like it was last year. The trips fish the Keys each winter, mostly on weekends, until Easter, before Joe turns all attention back on fishing from Sea Isle City, after the holiday. The Florida trips can be a mini vacation, and can target a large variety of catches from jacks to sailfish. That’s from the Everglades to the bay to the ocean side. No matter the weather or wind direction, there’s practically always a place to fish. See the traveling charters’ page on Jersey Cape’s website. Keep up with Joe’s fishing on Jersey Cape’s Blog.
