Pat and Nolan Wenning from MN and Peter, Christian and Emil Hanson from Denmark fished a three quarter day with Lethal weapon Charters this morning. We released a small Dolphin and a Barracuda and 15 year old Nolan fought, captured and released a 7′, #75 Sailfish. Great job Nolan! Tight Lines & Screaming Reels, Capt Ted

Inshore Bluewater Fishing

Inshore Bluewater Fishing

Jonathan and Nicola Vilma, Jesse and Jesse, Jr. Perez and Mark Borter and Jeremy Jones from Tampa fished with Lethal Weapon Charters today. We changed it up today and stayed inshore between 200′ and 300′. We caught this huge Bull Dolphin, 6 or 7 Schoolies, a Blackfin Tuna, a Kingfish, a Bonito and several Barracuda. It was an awesome trip and a great time was had by all. Tight Lines & Screaming Reels, Capt Ted

Elusive Marlin Strikes Again

Elusive Marlin Strikes Again

Chris and Mike Pappas, Dave Cron and Joel Ackerman from Potomac, MD fished out of Sunset Key on Lethal Weapon Charters today. Today was a very exciting day on the Lethal weapon. We found a floating Woods Hole marine research buoy. We also found an abandoned makeshift Cuban raft. Countless small Dolphin and Jacks were released on the trip. We kept 4 nice ones including a #22 Bull for dinner. We had 2 Marlin lures out all day when we were just discussing catching one when a #200 Blue hit the right rigger, ran off 100 yds of line and jumped and spit the hook. The Pappas group went back to Sunset Key with plenty of stories to tell. Tight Lines & Screaming Reels, Capt Ted

Mahi Mahi Bonanza

Mahi Mahi Bonanza

Matt, Owen and Parker Smith from Leutz, Fl fished offshore with Lethal Weapon Charters today. We found a monster weed line in 820′ and had non-stop action for hours. The boys were great catching huge Blue Runners, Blackfin Tuna, Skipjack and countless Mahi Mahi. It was flat calm and the water was a gorgeous deep blue. We saw the most bait today that we’ve seen in years. Tight Lines & Screaming Reels, Capt Ted

Banner Dolphin Day

Banner Dolphin Day

Jay Dye and Jody Williams from Greenville, SC and Ashley Reynolds and Pam Burba from Dallas fished a full day with Lethal Weapon Charters today. There was a monster weed line on the edge of the Continental Shelf absolutely alive with Mahi Mahi. We kept enough for several meals and countless others were released to fight again another day. It was almost impossible to get more than one line out at a time. We also spent a little time bottom fishing and were seriously spanked by a big fish. A great time was had by all.

Surprise Birthday Fishing

Surprise Birthday Fishing

Rene & Jo Schackai from Houston and Dave & Tina Billiot from New Orleans fished offshore today with Lethal Weapon Charters. Dave & Rene are life-long friends and Tina surprised Dave for his birthday with a fishing trip on the Lethal Weapon. Dave didn’t have a clue what was happening until he and Tina met up with Rene & Jo at the airport. We had a great day today releasing countless small Dolphin and keeping 6 for the freezer. It was a wonderful birthday surprise. Tight Lines & Screaming Reels, Capt Ted

Key West Deep-Dropping

Key West Deep-Dropping

Phil, Glenda, Tom & Jackie Nisa, Tom Mulrooney and Glen Hasell from Ft Pierce fished offshore with Lethal Weapon Charters today. The fish were so widely spaced and apathetic that we had nary a bite while trolling on a full day trip. We did stop at the Middle Crack in 1300′ for some bottom fishing. We did manage 6 nice Rosefish and Tom fought a huge Shark from the bottom all the way to the surface where it got away right behind the boat. The fight lasted almost an hour and a half in record heat. Too bad we lost the fish before a photo could be taken. Tight Lines & Screaming Reels, Capt Ted

Key West Deep Sea Fishing

Key West Deep Sea Fishing

Sharon, Mark and Griffen Williams and Cannon Crane from Atlanta, GA fished with Lethal Weapon Charters this morning. The boys had never fished in the ocean, were very excited and had a great time. They both caught several Bonito and Barracuda and we also had one Blackfin Tuna. Here’s a photo of the boys with Griffen’s trophy-sized Barracuda. Tight Lines & Screaming Reels, Capt Ted

Key West Wreck & Reef Fishing

Key West Wreck & Reef Fishing

Dale, Carrie, Dale Jr. and Ashley Ferguson from Troutman, NC fished on Lethal Weapon Charters today. We tried one of my favorite spots in the Key West Harbor for Bull Sharks. We lost one, caught some Yellowtails, Red Groupers, and Grunts. I didn’t have a good feeling about where we were so we headed out to one of the big Gulf Wrecks where we were one for two on Goliath Grouper. Here’s a shot of Dale Jr.’s #150 fish at boatside before release. Tight Lines & Screaming Reels, Capt Ted

Dry Tortugas National Park

Dry Tortugas National Park

Repeat customer, Bruce Burdick, from OK brought his father, Henry, down for an overnight trip to the Dry Tortugas National Park. The fishing was spectacular as advertised. Some of the species captured include: Bonnet Shark, Lemon Shark, Nurse Shark, Tarpon Barracuda, Tuna, Yellowtail Snapper, Mutton Snapper, Blue Runners, Cero Mackeral, Dolphin and Rainbow Runners. The best fish of the trip, Henry’s 150#, 6′ Tarpon, can be seen on our Facebook page, jumping in the Garden Key Anchorage of the Dry Tortugas. Henry and Bruce had the trip of a lifetime and Heath and I enjoyed ourselves as well. Tight Lines & Screaming Reels, Capt Ted
