The Sailfish action has remained strong over the last week with the majority of our fish caught by sight casting to fish which are chasing schools of Ballyhoo along the shallow reef edge. There have also been plenty of Dolphin up in this shallow water as well. We haven’t done alot of bottom fishing lately as the top water action has been too good to pass up, although the patch reef areas have been very productive for Snapper Grouper and Cero. King Mackerel are beginning to show up in greater numbers and we’ve been catching some in the 25 pound class.

Fishing has picked up markedly since our last report. Finally a body of Sailfish has moved into our local waters and those who are interested in tangling with these acrobatic fighters can expect multiple encounters per day. Additionally, decent sized Blackfin Tuna have become more common. There are still Dolphin around including fish up to 20lbs which we have found chasing Ballyhoo on top of the reef. The patch reefs have also yielded excellent action from keeper size Grouper and Mutton Snapper in the 8 – 12 lb range. We have also had plenty of action from Yellowtail, Cero, Little Tunny, and Jacks including Horse Eyes, Yellow Jack and Jack Cravelle.
