Fishing Reports

Fished with regular guests Steve and his dad Greg, from Hallandale.  We caught plenty of bait at our spot, and headed out.  Caught a few bonitas quickly, then set up.  Steve caught a beauty king of 27 lbs. on the down rod and  Greg added a nice king of his own.  The reward came about an hour later, when a sweet 30 lb WAHOOOO was brought into the boat with grins from ear to ear.  Fishing is very good now lets get out there!!! Capt. Matt

Took out Dave Orlando and Bob Rose from Brick NJ. for a half day of fishing.  Secured plenty of herring and live ballyhoo for our trip.  We saw a few frigates and busting bait showers close to the beach, so I trolled over to the spot and Bang,  one rod started screaming and then a nice splash way back and it was a nice dolphin in 30 ft of water.  This was the shallowest depth of water I had ever caught dolphin in.  Then it was a few bonita and mackeral on the way out .  Bob was on the rod when the flatline took off, the dolphin had him around the boat for a few times but did a great job hanging on to him with his glorious jumps, and landed a  15 lber.  Then it was Daves turn for a tough battle with a 40 lb king. The king was hooked near the bottom in 200 ft. Sometimes I thought the king was winning. but the end result David was victorious.  A great day for memories!!  Capt. Matt

Took JC Kirk out for some rosefish.  Caught enough for his family.  Jan starts tilefish season.  Give me a call and lets get some of the best eating fish outhere!!  Capt Matt  

Its been awhile since my last report so lets fill you in.   The dolphin bite has been very hot even up till I write this report>  The winds have blown from the east for days,  which brings the dolphin in close.  I have caught them in as little as 30 ft out to 600 ft.   Jim and Steve fished with us i Nov and had some nice catches of dolphin, mackeral and grouper.  Capt. Matt

Dolphin fishing has been one of the best in years.  Offshore, their has been massive amounts of weeds,  and the fish have been there also.   Try trolling near the weeds untill you get a hookup, then toss over a live bait and they should inhale it.  If you dont have any live bait,  any chunk like bonita or sardine, will work fine. Just remember to keep the last one hooked in the water ,till you hook up to another dolphin, they seem to come to investigate and will keep them around for a little longer!  The mullet have started their way down to the south,   and mackeral , bonita, and snook will be following. The fish are here!!  Capt. Matt
