Fishing in the Bahamas has been good as well. We mostly caught yellowtail snappers, groupers, mackerels, amberjacks, sharks, etc. If the predators hone in on you while you are trying to catch snappers and groupers, it is often best just to relocate, because no matter how fast you reel, the shark, cuda or jack, usually wins.
On the edge off Miami, there have been some decent dolphin, some very small dolphin, a million bonitas, a few sails, some blackfin tunas, and some kingfish. The kingfish bite seems better up north towards Palm Beach.
This will be my last report for a while since Iím heading out to the Bahamas for close to three weeks. Iíll be in several different islands targeting tunas, marlin, dolphin and bottom fish. It should be a blast. It looks like Iíll have good weather from my long crossing (last year it was 7 foot for 6 hours plus). Iíll post a report as soon as I get back.
