If anyone has seen my Facebook page, you probably know that I caught some incredible fish last week. If you haven't seen my page, all you need to know is that I spent a few days tarpon fishing down in Key West. It was truly the trip of a lifetime and I crossed off one of my "bucket list" fish in a big way. Unfortunately, the story is not mine to tell. You're just going to have to wait a couple of weeks until a good friend does his magic with the video editing. I promise to post it on my site once it's live.
What I can tell you is that if you're ever looking for a charter in Key West, I would HIGHLY recommend contacting Captain Mike Weinhofer of Compass Rose Charters. I have fished with dozens of captains and guides, and I can say without hesitation that Capt. Mike is in league of his own. He has 5 vessels including two immaculate Sea Hunters, a bay boat and a gorgeous flats skiff. His 25 years of fishing Key West have made him an expert from catching anything from sailfish, mahi and tarpon to permit and sharks. Without his guidance, network and expertise, the outcome of our trip could have been very different. A special thank you to Mike, Joe and the powers at be at F&S for allowing me to be a part of this most excellent adventure.
