Hello everyone, and welcome back to this week’s report! The weather has been decent this week with a bit of rain moving around, but completely doable. The offshore fishing for Dolphin remains slow as the green water is still lurking below, but there are a few fish out there for the keen eyed angler. It is no secret that when the wind is blowing the fishing has definitely been better, but there doesn’t seem to be much motivation for them to feed on the surface with calm seas. The majority of the fish are coming off the debris, so spending your time looking hard in the water for anything floating will yield the best results. The Swordfishing this past week was on the slow side, but with a few fish under a hundred pounds caught was the word on the dock. The humps have been getting really solid with the Blackfin Tuna bite, and the pilchards this week having been relatively easy has been wearing out my clients. Plenty of sharks on the hunt on the humps still as well as some AJ’s so plenty for the “tough guy” on your boat to have fun with. The wrecks and reef this week have been good, with some nice Muttons, Groupers, Yellowtails, and Mangrove Snappers. The Mangs are in full spawn and are eager, and the evening bite has been insane with some really nice Yellowtails as well. The weather looks like it might get a bit gnarly this weekend with the winds coming up near 20 knots, and calling for a lot of rain and thunderstorms. We will have to wait and see exactly what happens, but as of now it doesn’t look too good as it is the same front that is moving slowly across the State I believe. Well, give us a call if you need to book a trip, or if you need a little help getting dialed in! Have a great weekend everyone, and let’s hope the weather man is wrong!
