1 post in this topic

There is lots of good news since my last report. First, the dolphin fishing has improved. Not a lot of big ones, however, there are enough schoolie size fish to please most anglers. Second, the larger blackfin tuna have finallymade their appearance. Add in thesailfish and kingfish and you have a very good variety of offshore fish.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

Duany Ruiz had lots of fun on his ¾ day trip pulling on blackfin tuna,barracuda, kingfish, and cero mackerel. After tasting his blackfin tuna, he gave me a call and said it was thebest fish he has ever eaten.<o:p></o:p>

Nick Mau, his wife, and 2 other friends got into some great tarponaction during their evening trip. Nickand his wife started things off with a double header. They both did an outstanding job of fightingtheir fish as the tide pushed us into the main channel at Government Cut. The next three fish were singles. Along the way we also caught a yellowtail andbluerunner. Final count for the eveningwas 4 for 5.<o:p></o:p>

Victor Osnaya and Luis Gonzalez started their evening tarpon trip offwith a large jack crevalle. Luis wasamazed at how hard it fought. I told himhe hasn’t seen nothing yet. Wait tillthe tarpon turn on. He found out shortlythereafter what I was talking about. Final tarpon count for the evening was 2 for 4.<o:p></o:p>

Tom Mathias and his group also saw some great tarpon action. It started with the first drift and remainderfairly steady throughout the evening. The final tarpon count was 4 for 5.<o:p></o:p>

Tino Poo and his group caught yellowtail snapper, jack crevalle, bluerunners and went 1 for 2 on tarpon during their evening trip.<o:p></o:p>

Jewon Wee, Ken Lipscomb, Joe Steitz, and Mike Cranor saw the highs andlows of tarpon fishing. The first tarponwas caught and released. The second onegave us a great fight and acted like it knew where it wanted to go when it cutus off on the chain that holds one of the markers along the edge of GovernmentCut channel. The third tarpon also seemedto have our number when it found an obstruction on the bottom and cut usoff. We also caught yellowtail snapperand ladyfish.<o:p></o:p>

Patrick Picciotto made the most of the one shot he had during histarpon trip. The 80 pound fish ran usall over the flats area and then went into the main channel where Patrickslugged it out. It was a back and forthbattle for a long time. Each time thefish got close and then ran off, the look on Patrick’s face was one ofamazement. He couldn’t believe how hardthe tarpon pulled and the stamina the fish had. I have to extend a THANK YOU to the group on the Paramount boat. Our fish ran under their boat and the captainquickly raised his engine out of the water so our line could clear. His quick action made it possible for Patrickto land and release his first tarpon.<o:p></o:p>

Dave Steinel and John Mazurek fished offshore for dolphin. We spent a lot of time trolling to find fish. Once we got them up to the boat we switchedto live bait on spinning outfits along with Kaplan jigs. The fish were schoolie size with the largestone being 8 pounds. We kept 6 fish andreleased the 14 other fish we caught.<o:p></o:p>

Dave Steinel and John Mazurek were back for day two of dolphinfishing. We started off with a blackfintuna that was released. We picked atdolphin as we trolled our way offshore. We found a tree trunk and had our best action of the day. The tree trunk also produce a wahoo for us. On this day we kept the wahoo and 2 of the 10dolphin that we caught.<o:p></o:p>
