2022 Mission Fishin’ Event

Every year we look forward to seeing our friends from Mission Fishin' and spending time on the water with them. We just had the honor of hosting this wonderful organization again last week.

Greater Amberjack Tag and Release Program

Seriola Dumerili, AJ, Reef Donkey, Rock Salmon, Yellow trevally, Jenny Lind. Whatever you call it, the Greater Amberjack is a special fish. It's funny how iconic species of fish that have a significant impact on the lives of us humans seem to go by so many names. The Greater Amberjack is just that; it is the unsung hero of both the commercial and charter fishing industry.  Commercial Value Greater Amberjack is fished commercially throughout the South Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico and is often served in restaurants. The species doesn't get much credit; it is [...]

On July 17th, 2022, Captain Marty Lewis was a man on a mission. That mission was to help Vinny Yeager, age 66, catch his first Dolphinfish (Mahi-Mahi). Just eight months before, Vinny had the trip of a lifetime along with his son Nick aboard the very same vessel. Captain Marty helped Vinny catch his first Sailfish. In fact, Vinny also caught his second and third Sailfish that day!

Main Attraction Vacation Break – Fishing Report Fall 2021

What do fishermen do on their time off? Why we fish, of course! Our crew worked hard this past summer, and we thought everyone could use a couple of weeks off to relax, fish, and spend time with their families before the holiday rush begins. It was a fantastic past two weeks, and for the most part, the weather was sunny and warm. Once Hurricane Ida passed below the Florida Keys and headed for New Orleans, it left lots of floating debris in the ocean, which is never bad for Mahi fishing. Natalie poses [...]

Barrelfish, Rare Creatures Of The Deep – 2021 Fishing Report

Earlier this week Main Attraction had a day open for the Main One, their 49-foot sportfishing vessel. Owners Captain Marty and Katie Lewis decided to take it out for a day of fun fishing with some crew members, friends, and family. They headed offshore on a very calm day and decided to drop some baits down to the bottom in deep water. Katie’s friend Carlin, father Fred, and son Alex had never caught a Queen Snapper and wanted to cross that species off their bucket list. The Queen Snapper have been chewing pretty good lately, and [...]
