Fishing News & Report from the Deck of  Good Karma Sportfishing
September 14th 2014

Blackfin Tuna Time!


The Blackfin Tuna showed up in full force last week. In less than 45 minutes we had our share of sushi and spent the day releasing our catch.  We did not spend much time looking for dolphin(mahi mahi) offshore as we were having way to much fun catching tuna fish.  The snapper and grouper bite is pretty good right now. If dolphin is your fish of choice they are still out there.






If you are thinking about booking a trip please feel free to give me a call or send me an email with any questions you may have.


Tight Lines,

Capt. Ryan

Grouper Season is Open!

If you love catching and eating grouper as much I do then give me a call.  I will teach you about the Good Karma "Grouper Bomb" and hopefully make your arms very sore from fighting these monster fish.  








Check out this rare Hammerhead Shark that swam up to our boat in 55 ft. of water. Anything can happen out there so bring your cameras!

New for 2014!
Florid Keys Deep Dropping
(Weather & Sea Conditions Pending)
 Are you up for deep dropping for Snowy Grouper, Silky Snappers and much more?  Good Karma is now fully rigged for deep dropping. She equipped with a couple of the best electric reels on the market today for deep dropping, the Tanacom Bull 1000 Electric Reel made by Daiwa. Pending the weather we can now add deep dropping to the list of options. If you still want to reel the fish up manually from 400-600 ft then that is completely up to you.  Ask me about deep dropping when you e-mail or call.

Reef Fishing in the Florida Keys

Just a short 10-15 minute ride from Tavernier Creek Marina on the deep reefs we will anchor up & chum for Yellowtail, Mutton Snappers, & Groupers. These fish really like to eat when presented with the right bait and chumming techniques. On 1/2 day trips I like to get you fishing right away, therefore I have fresh bait already prepared for the trip.

 
On all trips to the reef I am targeting  snappers and groupers. On all trips I am fishing the deeper parts of the reef for big snappers and groupers.    I use commercial fishing techniques and other fun “stuff” to get the snappers and groupers to eat.  If you love to have your hands on the rods and reels at all times then this is the trip for you.  Fishing the reef is a the perfect trip for first time fisherman & families with young children that want to stay active.





 




Swimming with Mahi Mahi in the Florida Keys







Offshore (15-20 Miles) in the Upper Florida Keys


On nice days we will travel offshore targeting Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, and Marlin. 


Offshore fishing requires a lot of patience; remember we are big game hunting. Some days the fish will literally eat anything, but then there are other days where it takes time to find the fish. Most offshore fish such as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish and Tuna don’t take up full time residence in our waters. Check out our Florida Keys Fish calendar before planning a trip or just give me a call at 305-619-2126 & ask me what’s happening offshore in the Florida Keys.



Good Karma Sailfish Release January-2014


Wahoo Fishing 


 Wahoo fishing requires running baits down deep for the big fish.  Good Karma is equipped with electric reels and a electric downrigger.  We are equipped with reels and rods that can handle big winter wahoo, kingfish or other sea monsters that want to eat.   





  

 




 


 

              








 
About the "Good Karma"
Customized Sailfish 2360 Open Deck Center Console
We will take up to 4 Adults Max
"Good Karma" is fully rigged for offshore/reef fishing. "Good Karma" is a customized 2008 2360 Sailfish open deck center console with over 35 rod holders.   Good Karma is powered by a reliable and well maintained F250 Yamaha 4-Stroke outboard. We have new Taco Grandslam 280 Outtrigers for offshore trolling.    For customer comfort Good Karma is equipped with a customized spray curtain pilot house. The enclosure is designed to keep my clients dry and comfortable on windy and rainy days.


Good Karma is set up for the ultimate night time fishing adventure.





Seadek Customized Fishing Deck/Platform








I take my customers comfort level very serious.  Good Karma now equipped with a new SeaDek fishing deck/platform.  The anti fatigue properties and shock absorption cushion provided by the new SeaDek have taken our offshore fishing  & reef fishing to a whole new comfort level. Our new SeaDek is kind to your legs and helps circulation and reduces muscular stress. This is great for fisherman of all ages especially when hooked up to a big fish! 

SeaDek provides not only an exceptional traction surface but also lessens the fatigue brought on by prolonged standing while fishing.  If you have knee or back problems then you are going to love fishing on Good Karma.  Below are some key points about SeaDek:

  • Exceptional traction even when wet
  • Unparalleled comfort when standing, walking or leaning on the surface of the boat
  • Shock absorption, which decreases fatigue during a day of fishing on the reef and trolling offshore. 
  • UV Protected



Mike Meier, owner of Xact Canvas Boat Covers and Upholstery did an amazing job of installing the customized SeaDek. Xact Canvas is located at Tavernier Creek Marina. So if your looking to have Sea Dek done on your boat I highly recommend giving Mike a call at 305-852-3639.   


Garmin "Chirp" Depth Finding

On each trip we run 2 state of the art Garmin depth/chart plotter systems with one being the new 2013 Garmin "Chirp" system. We also utilize the Garmin GHP 10 Autopilot system to keep us dialed in on the fish.

 

Garmin GXM/Sirius Radio, Weather and Sea Surface Imaging(SST Charts)

Having updated weather and being dialed in on the sea surface temperature is critical.   Good Karma is equipped with a Garmin GXM 51 XM/Sirius weather/radio receiver.  We are now getting continuous weather feeds & have and have updated real time Sea Sea Surface temperatures at our finger tips. Having sea surface temperature imaging on our Garmin screens allows us to see dynamic changes in offshore waters.
