Sorry for the bit of delay between reports, but I have been fishing everyday and trying to get caught up. The sailfish action continues to be great. We did have two days were the bite for sails was non existent but we did manage to catch quite a few dolphin, some decent kings and some small blackfin tunas on those days. The sailfish action was slow those days because we had practically no current and the water was pretty green. The good news is that we now have good current again and some decent looking water. Our best day since my last report was 12 out of 18 sails and that was on a half day trip. We have been averaging 4 to 6 sails a day and are now starting to see more dolphin and steady action on the kingfish. We are also seeing blackfin tunas on practically a daily basis, but the tunas have definitely been on the small side. We should see the bigger tunas very soon and am excited to get the bigger blackfins in our area.
Spring is here and is my favorite time to fish. Not only will the sailfish be here for the next two months, but so will the big dolphin, big kings and the bigger blackfin tunas. Late April through June is also a great time to fish the late afternoon bite, as this is when all those species, especially the sails and tunas bite the best.
April is practically completely booked and May is filling up fast, but I still have open dates. Now is also the time to book your trips to the Bahamas where we will go target mutton snappers, yellowtails and groupers as well as big yellowfin tunas.
Donít hesitate, give me a call and letís catch some fish.
