12/27/16 Christmas Week 2016 Fishing

Just got back in town last night and the snow birds are here!  At least the post-christmas ones that are on vacation.  We got out for a half day this morning and caught some mackerels in the gulf.  The fishing wasn’t as good as it was before I left, there was a lot of ‘green algae’ water out around the mackerel grounds, however after making the 50 minute run you are kind of committed.  Luckily we were able to pick away and probably ended up catching about a dozen nice size mackerels, as well as some blue runners and mangrove snappers.  All in all still a fine morning half day trip in the florida keys.  The winds were not too bad, maybe a 10-15 mph easterly breeze.  Tomorrow looks to be decent I’m out for full days the next couple days, but I still have Friday and Saturday available if anyone is looking to go!  Friday we look to be getting a decent cold front (finally) and it will drop into the low 60s perhaps, but it’s not gonna stick around long as it is getting back into the 80s a couple days later.
