“Though the tourism never really slows down in the Keys anymore, I remember a day when it did, but we still could always count on a day of fishing filled with a variety of species”, said Capt. Rush Maltz of Local Knowledge.”Yellowtail, mutton and Florida red snapper get anglers primed up for the challenge of horsing big grouper and jacks from their tropical dens in the reef.
A pinfish trap glittering with bait gives hope to the day’s conquests.
Whether its deep dropping, deep jigging or fishing the reefs, there is always something to fish for in the variety of habitats that the Florida Keys offers”, continued Capt. Rush.
