The Fish Keep Biting

Now that the moon has passed the fish have kicked it back up to high gear. Even during the last moon the bite never got bad, just a little slower with most people still having very good catches.

Dolphin offshore are plentiful. There are a lot of smaller fish you will run into, but if you keep hunting you should find respectable school fish and a few gaffer size dolphin. Most of the larger dolphin and tuna have been near the wall about 28 miles to the South. I heard reports of one yellowfin tuna and several blackfins over 20 pounds plus good number of dolphin over 25 pounds.

My last offshore trip was Wednesday when we got into school sized fish in 650 feet of water about ten miles off the reef. We saw some larger fish but didn't bring any to the boat. Lots of billfish are being seen with a fair number of sailfish hook ups being reported.

The reef is still hot for yellow tail snapper. Mangrove snapper reports are still a little spotty but getting better. Tarpon fishing is still good and the bonefish reports are great.

I have been under the weather for a couple days so I haven't much else to add. There will be a Florida Sportsman Fishing Forum get together Wednesday at Rumbums this week at 6 O'clock.

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
