Tilefish Trips in Spring 2020 on the 44FA

Hey guys just want to give you guys a heads up. We will be wrapping our winter season in Miami next month and have the 44FA back to start Tilefishing trips in April for Golden's, Have the boat tuned in with brand new props so we will be cruising between 55-60 mph, so we will be on the tile grounds in less than 2 hours. We will have the option to use the Hooker electrics or hand crank with Shimano Tallicas. With the length of 44 feet we will be able to drift 6 guys with no issues. Once boxes are full will be hitting deepwater wrecks for Jumbo Cod/Pollack. Call me directly for any further details. 732-672-1561

Florida Keys Recap

John Toronto recap for the week. Made our way down to the keys on Wednesday-Sunday. Trip down was awesome and accommodations were amazing, Beachfront House with 5 rooms and all of the amenities. Thanks Capt Curt. Fishing around the weather we fished all facets of the keys from offshore which I would have liked to do more inshore/reef which was nonstop action and back bay which was cool but a bit unnerving in 2-3 foot depths the trip was a success eating our fresh catch every night. Good time with John and his team of hardcore fisherwomen!

First Florida Trip Recap

Hey everyone back from Florida/Bahamas, spent a week with the new boat and it was an eye opener. First day cruising to Bimini from Miami was sketchy first few miles with seas 3-5 with an occasional 6-7, had doubts, but as I settled into a groove  She just wanted to eat. To my surprise as we got closer to the Gulf Stream it got better, last half of the trip we were cruising at 55. First leg little over an hour. Next 2 days of fishing were fantastic from drifting for deep water, bottom fish, to high speed trolling at 20 knots she was stable, dry, and just plain comfortable. Time to come home, weather window was closing fast and either leave Saturday or be stuck in paradise till middle of the week. Made the decision to come back.  Seas were challenging but again the Boat proved to be a beast and handled everything Mother Nature through at us! Had a lot of technology and comforts that made the trip easier, 72 mile radar, Nite track vision, advanced GPS, most comfortable Helm chairs, and stadium seating for rest of the crew keeping them dry. Sunday morning was our last day of fishing and decided to Sailfish for a few hours before taking flights back. Had Capt Raul up in tower and I was working the pit, man do I miss that. Fed a bait to nice sail and had her boatside within minutes for a healthy release! Wanted to thank Mat, Adam,  And Mike for taking lead in the pit so I can focus on finding the fish. Thanks to remaining crew of Jeremy, Dave, Ed, Pat, and Larry for pitching in when needed and hopefully all of you guys enjoyed this adventure as much as I did!
