Shark fishing in Islamorada Florida Keys with Captain Steve Murray

Shark fishing in Islamorada Florida Keys with Captain Steve Murray at
Steve is a great guy and friend of mine.I miss fishing with him terribly. Steve and Eddie Gad owner of Sure Set Tackle taught me everything I know about salmon and steelhead. Years back Steve moved to Florida and has been rocking the guide scene down there ever since. Below are some of his experiences.

This next one is getting better on the edit.  It's two days worth of footage.  The audio isn't the greatest.
These guys come to the Keys and fish with me every year.  They are from Michigan.  This is a typical days fishing in Islamorada Florida with Captain Steve Murray.  A mixed bag of fishing for Mangrove Snapper, Speckled Sea Trout, Snook, Redfish and Shark.  We hooked up on the Stingray while shark fishing and we hooked up on the Goliath Grouper in a Snook spot.  It just goes to show you the diverse fishery we have.  When you are targeting one species there are a number of "other fish" you usually encounter.  

This next one is my best edit "so far".  The audio problem solved.  Two days of fishing.

These are two of my regular clients.  This is a typical afternoon/evening charter. (3pm-10pm) with Captain Steve Murray in Islamorada Florida.  This trip is very popular during tarpon season (April through June).  Tarpon are nocturnal I run evening charters for them.  These tarpon average 100-150 pounds this time of year.  We start out getting some "eating fish" for the guys to bring back for dinner (trout and snapper), then a little shark fishing and then transition into the evening tarpon fishing.  You notice while we are trout and snapper fishing we encounter several ladyfish and jack creval.
