The tailing action for Sailfish exploded over a three day period, the 8th, 9th, and 10th. With a massive color change in place for sometime, and strong E current, there have been an increasing number of fish along the change. We knew that with a shift of wind into the NE it would really light off. Thurs the 9th was that day, we recorded 8 Sailfish releases and a 50lb Cobia. We were in fish all day, sight casting to somewhere over 40, with about half that number biting. The days on either side of the 9th yielded 15 to 20 sightings. Today with calm conditions We fished a morning and caught 2 Sails out of the 4 we saw.

Excellent fishing along a pronounced color change has been the situation for the last 4 or 5 days. Plenty of Dolphin up to 40lbs and an increasing number of Sails are lurking along the edge. Today we caught one out of two Sails and 6 Dolphin from 8 to 15 lbs all before 11:00 AM. There are also a few Cobia tailing in the dirty water, We have been catching one or two from 20lb to 40lbs on most days. With another cold front coming this condition won’t last but we’ll enjoy it while it does.
