Fishing Is Fantastic
Report Date: June 15, 2017
June is half way over, and what a great month of fishing so far. We have caught dolphin,sailfish,blackfin tuna and kingfish.
The dolphin have finally showed up in force. We have not caught any really big fish but with the lack of size come numbers. We have been catching anywhere from ten to thirty dolphin per trip. They are averaging about 5-7lbs. We have been catching them trolling weedlines, live baiting under birds and on floating debris. Our charter today had an awsome trip. They managed to catch a dozen dolphin (mahi) under a floating piece of bamboo they also hooked up and caught a sailfish 10 miles offshore! Sailfish are usually caught at depths less than 300ft, so what a great surprise when a sailfish starting jumping.
We have not fished the edge too much as we have been busy offshore chasing dolphin (mahi). The days we have stayed in close was do to the seas being too rough to venture offshore. We have done well in close also. There have been plenty of kingfish and blackfin tuna.
The highlight so far this month was a fishing trip we had for kids with special needs. The trip is called “Fishin Mission”. What a great way to teach kids how to fish. They had a blast catching snapper and grouper. If you have any special needs children who would love to go fishing just give me a call. We generally stay close to shore in about 30ft of water. So if there are any issues, we can be back to the dock very quickly.
If you are wanting to catch your first dolphin (mahi) from now thru August should remain very good.
Don't forget yellowtail snapper fishing is also very good right now. Yellowtail snapper are caught year round, but from now thru August is usually prime time.
June is almost booked solid but I do have dates open in July. Just give me a call or send me an email on what you are looking to catch.
Catch Em Up!
