Kevin with Captain Chris Butler of Paradise Fishing Charters

Kevin Redding went trolling on the Atlantic and bottom fishing at the Reef with Captain Chris Butler of Paradise Fishing of Key West. The day started with a pod of dolphin (porpoise) following the boat on our way out “The Humps”. At one point there was a fish one every line on the boat. Brian dropped his camera and I put the mic down as we each had to grab a pole. Brian caught and released a barracuda. I snagged a Mahi that Jeff and Jason were nice enough to let me keep (it was delicious). Thanks to Captain Chris, First Mate Jimmy, Brian Nelson the cameraman, Andy Perkins from AP design ( for working on the photos, and Jeff from Atlanta and Jason from Tampa for letting us crash their charter. Call (305) 395-1416 and ask about going out with Captain Chris if you want to catch some fish. Be sure to tell them you heard about them from if you want the royal treatment! Please like us on face book (under the weather) and thanks for listening! with Sunset Watersports at Smathers Beach

Tales from Paradise

I had no inclination as to what, where, or any knowledge of even how to get to this tiny island. I packed a few things to stay for a week or longer and set our for paradise. As I landed in the Conch Republic I was captivated by the lush vegetation and colorful homes that lined the quaint streets and lanes. This tropical island is bordered by the most vibrant shade of turquoise waters I had ever seen. I visually consumed every fauna and floral possible.
