Ballyhoo Thick Along the Reef

Back to back cold fronts have dropped the water temps significantly over the last 10 days. This will greatly improve the fishing by driving Tuna, Kingfish and Sailfish into our area to escape even colder temps north of us. The improvement is already obvious- big kings are becomming more common- we had several in the 35lb class in the last several days. Also the Ballyhoo are thick along the reef edge which has attracted lots of Sails, Cero, Jacks and even Dolphin close to the shallow reefs. Casting to these fish as they chase the schools of Ballyhoo is a lot of fun. We’ve been seeing as many as 3 or 4 Sails at a time. Several days ago we found a group of 8 20lb Dolphin prowling in 25′ right on top of the reef. Blackfin Tuna are beginning to fill in on the deep wrecks, this fishery has been slow to start but is finally getting into high gear.
