May First Fishing Report

The winds are still making things a challenge. So I have mainly been at the dock trying to kill what is left of my liver. The boats braving the seas are catching a few dolphin and other critters but nothing exciting. Mainly schoolie dolphin and the occasional tuna and wahoo. To the West there were a few boats getting gaffers and an occasional slammer.

Tarpon, which have been hot and heavy at night, are on the slow side the last few days. Hawks Channel is producing a few nice cobia and snapper but it is still pretty chunky. Bayside, surprisingly, a few Spanish Mackerel are still biting along with the usual suspects.

When the winds lay down so I can cover some ground, it should not be a problem getting into some bigger offshore fish. The question is when it will lay down?

Marathon in the Florida Keys should be your next fishing vacation destination. Join us for charter fishing, fishing guide trips or our fishing 101 so you can fish on your own with better success.

Tight lines,

Capt. Dallas
