As I write this, the wind is blowing 25mph with gusts up to 30mph. That has been
the story for the past few weeks. I have had a number of cancellations but still had
a few charters that wanted to brave the seas.
I did have a few charters that came from out of town and instead of canceling their
trip completely opted to fish the edge. Their has been an excellent amount of sailfish
for this time of year. On the 4 trips on the edge we had we caught sailfish on every
trip. We also managed to catch a few small kingfish and caught 4 or more mahi
(dolphin) on every trip. That is the great thing about fishing in south Florida.
If it is too rough to venture offshore we can fish in closer to land where the seas
are not as rough and still catch a variety of fish.
I have not done any night time snapper fishing wich is a shame as I have heard
of a vey good yellowtail snapper bite alaong with a few mutton snapper in the mix.
So as you can see even if the weather is not good for fishing there are many other
boating activities I love to do.
I am sure the winds will subside soon wich will make the fishing a lot more comfortable
With the swordfishing in prime season and the sailfish season starting early, lets
get your trip booked. Shoot me an e-mail, text or just call me.
