Some of the traveling trips to the Florida Keys fished this weekend aboard, said Capt. Joe Hughes from Jersey Cape Guide Service and Sea Isle Bait & Tackle. The anglers, Dan Rath and Skip Metz, landed a tarpon and had shots at several other tarpon. They also reeled in lemon sharks and bonnethead sharks to 50 pounds, mutton snappers, jacks, groupers, a bonefish and more. The fishing, on Florida Bay, was good, and shrimp on jigheads were tossed to the tarpon. Free-lined shrimp were cast to the sharks, on the flats. Jigs with shrimp or Gulps were thrown to the rest of the catches. Wind was severe on Sunday, but the anglers were able to fish, and that’s one of the good things about the trips. The Keys offer someplace to fish no matter the weather, from the bay to the ocean side to the Everglades on the mainland. Weather was good Saturday, with calmer wind, clear skies and 74-degree air temperature. The annual charters are offered each winter aboard, mostly on weekends. Anglers can arrive on a Friday evening, fish all day Saturday and part of Sunday, return on Sunday evening, and be back to work on Monday. Or they can fish on a different schedule. The trips can be like a mini vacation. See Jersey Cape’s traveling charters Web page. Keep up with Joe’s fishing on Jersey Cape’s Blog.
