Took a group of the Head chefs and owners of popular Key West eatery, Rooftop CafÃ© today. Found a sheet of plywood on the â19 line? that was loaded with fish. Caught 2 wahoos out of 6 bites and 20 odd nice Dolphin, gaffers up to 22lbs. Lots of wind and rain and electricity in the area so we came in early with everyone well satisfied with the action

THAT’S MORE LIKE IT! The last week or so the fishing has been really slow with nothing but throw back Dolphin around, so it was great to have an excellent day today. Start with a box of decent Dolphin, full sized schoolies, and gaffers and add to that A White Marlin Release, followed by a Blue Marlin Release. Talk about right place right time! The White was about 60lbs caught on 30lb tackle and put on a great show with the water so calm. The Blue was about 140lbs also caught on 30lb and took the better part of an hour to bring boatside. Interestingly, the Blue bite just moments after we released the White while we were still putting the spread back out. Both fish ate flat line swimming ballyhoo in the vicinity of the East Crack. Congratulations to Jim Depapa and his group.
Slow fishing the last couple of days. We’ve just come off a weekend with too many boats fishing for too few Dolphin. The report is the same for everyone, lots of micro Dolphin, call them “grasshoppers”, or “shakers”?, either way too small to keep. Very few decent fish around. Hopefully better days are coming.
