This year temperatures have been slow to fall with the result that the type of fishing we expect to see in Nov has been slow to develop. Finally however in the last week we are experiencing an influx of Blackfin Tuna, Sailfish and Wahoo. Dolphin remain in the area and we are catching them particularly

JUNE 2014 FISHING REPORT

During the month of June you can expect the Dolphin fishing action to continue unabated. Larger fish tend to become harder to find as the area fills with tremendous numbers of “schoolies”. Debris as well as weed lines will be holding fish. A subtle reading of whatever birds you find will also give indications as

MAY 2014 FISHING REPORT

I hope readers of this column were able to participate in the very good Sailfishing which occurred last month during the “Tailing” and “color change” condition. It was the subject of April’s column, and though it didn’t last long, for about 10 days the Sails poured through. Now that we are into the Month of

APRIL 2014 FISHING REPORT

A week or so ago we were anchored in 125’ of water just outside the reef edge. We had caught 3 Cobia on live baits fished right on the bottom to go along with a few Kingfish and Mutton Snapper.  We decided to leave the spot after the action slowed down and as we began

March 2014 Fishing Report

The first week of March finds us between seasons with very little good fishing to report. Our winter action which consisted of Sailfish, Tuna, King Mackerel, and Cero is about over, but spring action has not yet begun. Water quality along the reef edge and beyond has frequently been poor this winter. As an example

February 2014 Fishing Report

Finally the wind has slacked off at least for the last week or so which is about all you can expect this time of year. I hope everyone has had a chance to take advantage of the calmer weather and get out on the water. A pretty good Wahoo bite headlines the recent fishing action.

January 2014 Fishing Report

One of the windiest winters in recent memory continues unabated. With the briefest exceptions, temperatures remain warmer than average for this time of year as well. As a result, King Mackerel which are a mainstay of our fishery this time of year are all but absent. Sailfish numbers are also down. Both of these species

December 2013 Fishing Report

We’ve had plenty of wind but only a modest amount of cool weather to begin the winter season. Out along the reef edge in the lower Keys, water quality has been an issue. Veterans of the fishing scene point to an ongoing lack of strong east current and clean blue water. Historically this has been

November 2013 fishing report

Temperatures are falling and the wind is up as we transition into the fall and early winter season. Windy conditions can make it difficult for smaller boats to get out but north and northeast breezes with accompanying cooler temps are a necessary precursor for triggering the winter migrations which over time will improve the quality

September 2013 Fishing Report

This month’s fishing report might be more accurately titled, my northern fishing vacation. Just as many of my readers leave the local area during the heat and humidity of Hurricane season, I too like to get away and wet a line in an utterly different fishing venue. This year I traveled to Wedgeport Nova Scotia
