And The Action Keeps Getting Better And Better!!

2 posts in this topic

I’ve been receiving lots of calls about “how’s the fishing?” This is the first break I’ve had to sit down and write a report. So, once again let’s get caught up with the action.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

Offshore has been a mixed bag with a variety of species. The great thing is that when the hook up occurs, you just never know what it might be. The list of fish we’ve been catching include sailfish, dolphin (mahi-mahi), kingfish, blackfin tuna, mutton snapper, Spanish mackerel, bonito, arctic bonito, and small sharks. That’s quite a list. The action has taken place on the kite, flatlines, and downrigger. The deep rod has been the only one that has not seen any action. Find some north current and water that is at least blue/green in color and it won’t be long before the fish start biting.<o:p></o:p>

Inshore it’s been tarpon, jack crevalle, barracuda, and Spanish mackerel. The best tarpon bite has been late afternoon through and after dark. Bring plenty of bait as the mackerel have had a hardy appetite while you’re waiting for the tarpon strike.<o:p></o:p>

Kevin Ward, Rich Cordova, and John Olaes caught sailfish and bonito during their trip.<o:p></o:p>

Scott Lawhead caught and released his first tarpon. His brother Chris was along to share the experience and take pictures.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p></o:p>

Robert Dollar, Dave Hirsch, Tyler Miale, and Chris Bassantes wore their arms out catching jack crevalle in the Dumfoundling Bay area. The action was fast and furious. A large mangrove snapper surprised everyone and made for a good meal.<o:p></o:p>

Phil Philipowich and his son Cody saw action with sailfish and mutton snapper offshore and finished off the evening with tarpon inshore at Government Cut.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p></o:p>

Hunter and Paul Tully along with Frank and Judy Addabbo got into the action with sailfish, kingfish, Spanish mackerel, mutton snapper and a houndfish.<o:p></o:p>

Captain Gil Gutierrez and I took some time to ourselves and got in on the hot jack crevalle and barracuda action in the Dumfoundling Bay area. Every time we thought about calling it a day, we’d find more fish and had to stay and catch several more.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p></o:p>

Pete Dipino and Rich Pina fish two days. The first day they each caught and released their first and second sailfish along with several kingfish and Spanish mackerel. The second day they added another sailfish each to go with three blackfin tuna, two dolphin to 20 pounds, an eight pound mutton snapper, and four foot shark.<o:p></o:p>

Jeff Berardelli and Adrian Alvarez shot some video of their fishing trip for CBS 4. The flatlines and downrigger produced action with blackfin tuna, kingfish, and arctic bonito during a 3 hour trip. Watch for the segment during a news telecast in the next week or two. The segment will also be available on the CBS 4 website http://cbs4.com Once it’s available, I’ll let everyone know in one of my reports.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p></o:p>

I have more offshore and evening tarpon trips scheduled so I’ll do my best to get another report posted as soon as the trips are completed.<o:p></o:p>

<o:p></o:p>

The action is hot, so now’s the time to give me a call or send me an email to schedule your trip and get in on the fun.<o:p></o:p>
