SPECIAL FOR THE MONTHS OF OCTOBER AND NOVEMBER 2019
Fishing Charter and Cheeseburgers in Paradise at World Famous Cabbage Key.
Leave at 7 or 8:00 Am for 3 hours fishing then a break for lunch. Buy the Captain a Burger and a glass of Iced Tea and he will add the time for lunch back onto your Charter. Then another 1+ hours of fishing. What could be better? Cabbage Key is listed in the National Registry of Historical places.
Shrimp are a great saltwater bait but Summer shrimp are always micro size at best. This season, as an alternative, we have been using 3" Gulp Mantis shrimp, new Penny/Chartreuse, under a small tarpon float, with a 3' leader & a Chartreuse 3/8ths jig head. The results have been astounding. Not only is there tons of action, it's more sport, casting, jigging & reeling.
Folks, we just got in 12, New Super Smooth, PENN, BATTLE 4000 II & 5000 CONFLICT REELS for your use and fishing pleasure, loaded with 40lb to 90lb POWER PRO braided line, all mounted on Incredibly sensitive and super strong, "BIG WATER" Ugly Sticks. You'll love the sensitivity and the feel of the fight.
750 Spin Fishers & 950 SSM PENNs for You Tarpon addicts. Custom, German made Marzulla rods. Call me today to book your trip. Season is just around the corner.
Family, Beginners and Children are always welcome.
So, You say You've Never Fished Before? I'll teach you, It'll Be Fun. I'll have you on the Pro team by days end. You Can Do This.
