Hello Fish Fans and welcome aboard the REEL BUSY. The wind laid down for a week or so and we’ve been catching dolphin, kingfish, tuna and sailfish.
The dolphin bite was good to excellent for most of the week catching a dozen one day and 13 the next. Most of the dolphin have been small with a few 8 to 12 pound gaffers in the mix. The bite went from hot to not on Sunday and more of the same on Monday. We expect to have a good to excellent dolphin bite again as the wind and seas settle back down next week.
The sailfish bite slowed to a crawl and it’s been just a pick for a week or two now. There’ll continue to be a few sailfish hanging around and catching 1 or 2 should be doable on most days.
Blackfin tuna and skipjack tuna have started to arrive on the current edge of the gulfstream and push button hill. Most of the blackfins we’ve been catching are 7 to 10 pounds but there’ll be 15 to 25 pound blackfins in the mix as we transition into springtime.
Small kingfish have moved onto the reefs and wrecks and they’re eager to play the game. Most of the kingfish right now are 5 to 10 pounds. The larger kingfish of 20 to 40 pounds will start showing up as we transition into spring.
We’ve yet to catch our first wahoo of the year but there’s 1 or 2 caught by somebody on most days. The cobia haven’t showed up in numbers yet but they’re on their way.
