We enjoyed another beautiful day offshore, and had pretty good action as well!

I was satisfied with the area I chose to fish in, and with the number of strikes that we had, but today the odds weren't in our favor. We went 2 for 10 on wahoos, but our number one mission was accomplished and that was for Tyler to catch his first wahoo. We also found a school of dolphin and bailed a dozen of them as well. Thanks for a great day Jason!

Lisa, you've gotta forgive me. My mind went blank and I couldn't think of a catchy title for the report, but it wasn't because the gang didn't have fun!

These guys REALLY wanted to find some bailers, so I trolled off in the deep, and found what I had hoped for, lots of big patches of grass. Unfortunately, I found them before the dolphin did because we didn't have any action. It sounded like the wahoos were biting back inshore so I shallowed up and went to work. We did a pretty good job of catching up, and landed five for the afternoon, plus a dolphin. Pretty good table fare and a lot of fun to catch! Thanks guys!


Quick Trip

The weather wasn't bad today but a couple of my guys still felt a little under the weather.

I'm not sure that we fished an hour before they decided to throw in the towel. It was too bad because we caught two wahoos and a couple of dolphin in the short time that we fished. Still, they wound up with plenty of fresh fish to enjoy this week on vacation! Thanks again John


No Waders Needed

Little bit of an inside joke in the title, but seriously, the weather was perfect again today and the fishing was good too.

Mike and Kevin had never been offshore with me until today. We threw them right in to the fire first thing with a "one stop shopping" experience with the bailers. These guys did great and Mike commented that we had a limit of dolphin before he normally gets anything done in a day! We trolled offshore to look for a marlin but didn't have any luck in the deep. We did catch two out of four wahoo bites while we were trolling off and back in. Thanks guys...enjoy the fish!


Getting Warmer!

...the fishing that is!

There were patches of grass everywhere today, and scattered grass in between. It was hard work keeping baits clear but we pounded it out and put together a great catch of nice dolphin and one out of two wahoos. The highlight of the day was a flatline blue marlin bite. Mikey got the dink bait away from the 300 pounder and I got the shot at him on a long rigger. He put on a beautiful show and James did a great job of angling the fish to the boat for the release. Thanks guys!


Another Family Day!

I had a great time watching these kids catch dolphin and wahoo today!

It was slick calm, so there wasn't much that could mess the day up, but good fishing helps make it better! I somehow wound up east of the fleet, and the southern boats had better dolphin fishing, but we still caught twenty, mostly big bailers and a couple of small gaffers. We also landed three out of four wahoos again today. Thanks Dan for spending a wonderful day offshore with us!

Today was pretty similar to yesterday except for a cool north breeze. Pretty nice for August!

We piddled with a couple schools of bailers this morning, till my guys said they had enough. After that we trolled for "whatever", which wound up being three out of four wahoos and a king mackerel. They had some stuff to do back on shore so I got an early dismissal around 12:30. Thanks Rick, see you guys next time!

It wound up being beautiful today, and the fishing was pretty good!

Like it has been, the wahoo fishing was hit or miss, but we landed four of our eight or nine bites today. We had a few dolphin bites throughout the day and finally got on a big school at the end. Thanks Paul for setting the trip up and having my neighbors along!


Bill And Mom

I wish that me and MY mom fished together like these two!

Wahoo fishing was actually pretty good today. I fished on the eastern end of the fleet but the boats that fished to the south had a good number of bites. Bill got lucky and caught one out of a pair of sailfish in the morning. Mom was clicking away with her camera so hopefully she got us some good jumping shots to post. We found a float and caught a nice mess of dolphin a little later. As I worked down the beach, we managed to land one out of three wahoo bites in the afternoon. Thanks for another great trip Bill!


Family Reunion

Today my long time friend and former mate Jonboy brought some of his family along for another offshore adventure!

We had a little more wind than we expected but honestly, the northeast breeze felt nice to me. Fishing was still spotty but we did have six wahoo bites and landed three of them including Mitch's citation 43 pounder! Thanks for a great day Boy!
