Fishing Reports

Mark caught his first dolphin and some mackeral, and a shark!

Took out my nephew, Mark who was visiting from Pennsylvania. We needed to get him a sailfish, since it had eluded him a few times. He finally caught his first sailfish, while doing a great job!  We also caught a nice Dolphin.  Congrats buddy!   

Bottom fishing has been very good with some muttons and various snappers being caught.  Remember last day for grouper is the 31. Some dolphin have been around, but it is hit or miss.  The frigate bird will be the tell tale sign, flying low to the water.  We caught a few dolphin and have caught sailfish on almost every trip. Kingfish are good one day and are scattered the next. Spanish mackeral are now here in numbers . The cold front this week will only improve the sailfishing in numbers!  Capt Matt

Thank goodness we made it through the storm with minimal damage, and we pray for the ones who were less fortunate than ourselves!  It seems the wind in Nov will not quit, giving us few chances to get offshore.  In Oct, we did make it out and our clients caught a few dolphin, and some snake kings.  Their were only a handful of larger kings caught. The mackeral have started to show up and can be taken on small feathers  close to shore from 15-40 ft.  The tarpon have showed up and the action will only increase throughout  the winter!  I fished the gulf coast during thanksgiving week and caught numerous big gag grouper.  The winter brings more cold fronts which will turn the sailfish action in high gear!  We are catching sailfish with multiple chances daily! Bottom fishing has been good with groupers being caught also. Untill next tide, Capt. Matt

Sailfish have been steady, but plenty of fish are still to the north, since we haven't had many strong coldfronts come through.  Kingfishh are here one day and tough the next.  We have caught a few wahoo near to the full moon.  Deep dropping for golden tilefish was slow in early Jan but the fish have been biting well the last few trips. Blueline tiles are also biting well in state waters.  Vermillion snapper have been up to 3 lbs.  Lets get out there for a nice Golden Tile!!  Capt Matt
