Big One!

Thursday April 25,2019 Jeff Sorensen of Malabar went on a day fishing with Captain Jay Senne aboard the FISH MASTER out of Sebastian Inlet and caught what turned out to be a catch of a lifetime. After catching a couple nice 20 pounders earlier in the day, Captain Jay decided to take a gamble and move for 30 min North with the current of Gulfstream to unfished waters roughly 18-20 miles. After getting our gear deployed it wasn’t 20 min later when the massive Bull Dolphin assaulted our spread. After a long dropback Jeff did the old Bill Dance hookset and it was on. After battling weeds on the fishing line and passing through the weed line we were able to get our long gaff in the Dolphin and the rest is history. A personal best and FISH MASTER record. What a trophy and Jeff is having it mounted too. Great job Jeff hope to see you again soon.

On Wednesday April 17, 2019, Dan and Jane Fastelin made the trek from Port Charlotte Florida to Sebastian Inlet for a day of fishing. Having never fished Florida’s East coast they were excited when they arrived early for their 3/4 day offshore fishing adventure.  After the daily safety briefing, we were on our way motoring to the edge of the gulf stream 31 miles offshore for 77-78 degree water.  We captured 7 mahi-mahis  10-41 pounds. Dan and Jane were warriors with a fishing rod and it showed with their catch. We hope to see them again in the near future and thank you for choosing FISH MASTER, a full-time fishing business.

A Successful Day In May

Thanks to Matt P. and friends for the nice testimonial:

Just got back from a great day of fishing What an awesome day. We arrived at the dock earlier than we needed to be and Jay was already there and ready to go. Captain Jay and his first mate, Shane, are guys who have their guests in mind from rigging bait, finding and landing fish. They took us to places to make sure we were on top of the fish and put fish in the ice chest. The boat cut through the waves easily and the style keeps it from rocking and rolling while stopped. Anyone who has motion sickness will love this boat. Highly recommend Captain Jay, First Mate Shane and his boat. Great trifecta. Thanks. We will be back soon. Matt P

On March 16th Eric T. and his friend Brad from Michigan fished a full day.  Sea conditions were 4-6 feet and higher in the Gulf Stream. Knowing Eric from trips in the past he is ready.  We caught some Dolphin but Eric wanted Brad to have the excitement of catching a Sailfish.  We relocated to a locale wreck put the gear overboard and shortly after that, it was FISH ON!  After a few short minutes we had the sail alongside where it was released in good condition. Pretty work Brad.  What a trophy; see you next year.

March 10, 11 & 12, 2017

We had the great pleasure of fishing with Mr Brad S. who chartered the FISH MASTER for 3 days in a row on March 10th, 11th and 12th.

On day one, Mr S. and family went bottom fishing early in the morning with hopes of Dolphin fishing. Later in the afternoon, unfortunately, the weather took turn for the worse and were homeward bound with lunch in the fish box.

On day two and three, the winds stayed up so we decided to try Sebastian Inlet for Snook and Bull Redfish. After catching Masookies and Thread fins, we went fishing and caught Hard tail Jacks, Snook (over and under the legal slot size) & BULL Reds. In the end, Brad said, “I’m done, my arms are killing me.” We thank Brad for the chance and hope all the family had fun.
Captain Jay Have a great day

On March 9th we had the pleasure of fishing 1/2 day with Robert W. from Miami along with his Wife and her mom and dad who live in Melbourne. They caught Sheepshead, short Black Sea Bass, some Lane snappers and a few Short mutton snappers and trigger fish. After the trip, fish were cleaned and they were taken to the Mobay Grill in Sebastian where they were prepared four different ways for lunch. Thanks for fishing on the FISH MASTER Robert!

On March 2nd we had a nice group including friends of Craig J. who is retired military (Air Force) pilot living Kentucky. We fish a couple times per year. We did some bottom fishing inshore and did battle with several sharks, snappers and cobia. It was a little rough then got rougher as the day went on. We returned to the docks with enough fish for a couple of meals. There were lots of laughs and we look forward to the next time. Thank you, Craig!

On March 1 aboard the FISH MASTER my mate Shane and I fished with the Robert S. party from Chicago on a half day trip. We fished a little north east of Sebastian Inlet in the Grant Pines area where we caught mutton snapper, all throw-backs. We caught some Black Sea bass with 6 of legal size with many short throw-backs and some nice size lane snappers. We were preparing to hard back when Bob and friends decided to make it a full day. We moved to another area farther NE called locally the high bar where we had several bites connecting with some king mackerel,barracudas and released a nice sailfish. Run times were had and memories to cherish thanks Bod and crew.
Captain Jay   Have a great day
