Hello everyone, and welcome back to this weeks report! A bit of weather around this week, and has made the fishing a little tough. Green water and south current has made fishing for the Pelagic’s difficult at best. There had been a few sails around earlier in the week, plus a few Mahi, but the numbers have dwindled as the week has progressed. The swordfishing has been decent this week from local reports, but mostly smaller fish. Although, a few nicer ones have been caught. The humps have had some Tunas, AJ’s and sharks keeping Anglers busy, but the winds have made it tough for most to get to. Bottom fishing on the deeper ledges and wrecks has had its ups and downs, but to the south of Alligator Reef has been best. Some nice Groupers on the catch and release side, and some nice Muttons have been biting. The king mackerel bite continues to be decent as well. The reef slowed a bit with the cooler water temps, but the boats who were persistent managed some nice catches of jumbo tails. Still some decent fish on the patch reefs too, but not as strong as they were. Plenty there to make a few nice dinners, but tough to spend a lot of time on. Even the slow days are pretty good, and we all know as the conditions change the fishing will change with it. As the seasons change it takes time for the patterns to line up correctly and I’m sure that is just around the corner. Looks like some better weather is on the way, so stay tuned for next week’s report where we will see how it all plays out. Be safe everyone, see you next week!
