[Miami,FL] Winter fishing is starting to get in full swing. Today we had the pleasure of fishing with ex Marine, Gulf War Veteran, Daniel Garcia. We loaded up on Bait at Bugs Light and decided on heading to Fowey Rocks and start our drifts between 70 and 300 feet. We managed a descent King Mackerel bite early in the morning that lasted till about 10:00 AM. During one of the drifts we possibly lost a Sailfish. After we decided to head north to fish some of the wrecks of Key Biscayne. On the way there we observed a nice rip and managed a small Dolphin.
