The offshore fishing had been disappointing over the past 10 days or so, but in the last several days has improved significantly. Large Dolphin have moved back into the area. Today we had 6 fish between 20 and 30 pounds to go along with a few schoolies and 4 or 5 gaffers. Reef fishing for Yellowtail Snapper remains pretty good on days with current on the reef edge.

We have had lots of calm hot weather the last several weeks and the offshore fishing had suffered as a result. Large dolphin were very hard to find and even schoolies had become less common. As a result we spent several days on the reef where the Yellowtail Snapper fishing has been good. Yesterday after a couple of days of breezier weather we ventured back offshore and were pleasantly surprised to find big Dolphin back in residence. We ended up with 6 fish from the low 20’s to the low 30’s as well as 8 or 10 from 6 to 10 pounds.
We continue to enjoy excellent Dolphin fishing which has been going on for the last 3 weeks. Good numbers of billfish, mostly Sails, although we did catch a White Marlin as well last week are also biting. Blackfin Tuna and Skipjack Tuna are also in the mix. Our largest Dolphin last week was 50 Lbs with many others in the 25Lb range.
