Hello everyone, and welcome back to this week’s report!
The offshore bite continues to produce some Mahi’s in depths from 450 to 700, the humps are still producing some nice tunas, and the live bait on the west or Marathon Hump has been the best. The sharks have been tough on the other 3 humps.
A lot of debris around for the Mahis offshore from the storm, but a decent number of fish to say the least. Not sure how much longer it will last with the cool fronts starting, but we will take it.
The deep ledges and reef have been decent, but it’s been better on the wreck to the south. The sharks are really bad from Tennessee Reef north; however, below Tennessee Reef, they appear to be much less active… at least on the natural bottom.
All of the manmade wrecks seem to be loaded up pretty good. At the most, you can get a few off of them, but once they find you, forget it.
The reef fishing seems to be decent all the way up and down the line with the Yellowtail Snappers, Groupers, and some nice Mangrove Snappers. There are also plenty of Kings showing up on the reef and the wrecks, and the Sailfish have been pretty consistent too. No double digit days, but several 3-5 fish days already.
Looking forward to and hoping for some consistent weather this year, and for some good fishing. It appears early that we are off to a good start!
