Hello everyone, and welcome back to this week’s report! Some pretty decent weather this week, as there has really only been one day of really rough weather, and the fishing has been pretty good too! The Mahi bite has been sporadic, but has yielded some nice fish. It seems that about half of the fleet is really getting into them, and half of them don’t. More of an East/West deal, as the boats going East will get in them some days, and the guys to the west won’t…and vise versa. We had a nice push last week and it seemed as if things were going to fall into place, but these fish are still a little behind on numbers, but rest assured any day now it will be right where it should be. This east wind we are getting is only going to help out the cause. Almost everyone is catching 10-20 fish per day at worst, so it isn’t horrible just a little slow. The Tuna bite on the humps has been great for numbers, not a lot of big fish, but some nice footballs. A little further offshore the Swordfish bite remains decent, and I am sure this will continue throughout the summer into fall. The wrecks have been good this week after the moon, and the Mutton Snappers have been chewing pretty good. The deeper ledges, wrecks, and rock piles have been producing quite nicely with a few Groupers mixed in as well as AJ’s and Almaco Jacks. A lot of big Bonita and even a few Sailfish have made appearances while bottom fishing so keep a flat line or two out while drifting around as you never know what is going to show up. The reef continues to be red hot with the Yellowtail Snapper bite, and some nice Mangrove Snappers. The Grouper bite here has been a little slow the past week, but hopefully that will pick up as the weekend approaches. A lot going on down here, and plenty of fish to make for some great fishing. Bait fishing this week has been good as well, with a few nice schools of Pilchards hanging around Islamorada. There have been plenty of Ballyhoo on the patches, but the cigar minnows remain to be tough. Hopefully this will change soon.
