Looking to turn heads? Interested in standing out from the crowd? Why pay the high cost of a custom paint job when you can get the hottest thing to hit the water since 4-stroke outboards – a boat wrap.
Tucked far from the hustle and bustle of every day life, lies a small piece of utopia frequented only by a privileged few – a magnificent angling Mecca beckoning visitors to test her waters.
In my logbook of life, any time of the year is a good time to venture to the islands. So back in the spring when the idea of a quick, 'Out Island' getaway came up, Rum Cay stood out as the perfect escape from the craziness of civilization, without getting too far from civilized life.
Southwest Reefs & Wrecks - How far offshore is far enough?
Long renowned for its normally calm seas and superb offshore fishing, Florida’s Southwest Coast finds its treasure and allure not in the legends of lost pirate’s booty, but in the vast abundance of reefs and wrecks scattered across the ocean floor.
With strict Bahamian bag limits currently in effect, many anglers are turning to the Florida Keys' deep, dark depths for relief from the heat!
Over the last few years, deep-dropping has emerged as one of the most productive fishing methods available to Florida's resident and visiting anglers. Some have even gone as far as calling the technique “catching” rather than “fishing.”

Captain Ron Hamlin, the first captain to hit 20,000 billfish releases during his illustrious 35 year career, stood up and told everyone at the prestigious Miami Beach Rod & Reel Club that circle hooks would help anglers catch more sailfish.

Often overshadowed by natural baits and traditional
trolling lures, deep-diving swimming plugs remain
#1 on my wish list of favorite lures!
For just about as long as i’ve been fishing, i’ve always
stashed an assortment of reliable deep-diving plugs in
my tackle bag. I often refer to them as “skeletons in my
closet.” Reason being; i keep them a secret.
