We have finally had our first cold front and Ballyhoo bait is swarming all along the reef edge. Today we caught 4 Gaffer Dolphin which were chasing ballyhoo on the top of the reef. We also anchored and live bait chummed and had Tuna’s busting in the slick. More good signs that Fall/Winter fishing is beginning.

We began the day on the reef catching Yellowtail. A school of live ballyhoo swam up and we filled the live well. We spent the afternoon slowtrolling live bait and caught a Sailfish and a 20lb Blackfin Tuna. Catching Tuna and Sails is a sure sign that improved cool weather fishing is on the way.
Today we began the day anchored up in the deep water(210′). We had an ideal light current condition which paid off with the capture of 3 African Pompano. These beautiful hard fighters are quite uncommon. We kept one to eat and released the other two. In the afternoon we moved inshore to the reef edge and caught Yellowtail, Cero and Yellowjack.
