April Report

Friday, April 30, 2010




Offshore, the blackfin tuna and wahoo have been biting very good.  We have been catching them both jigging and trolling, but recently casting topwater lures has produced blackfins consistently upwards of 30 lbs.  If you have never cast offshore artificials for large blackfins, this is the most fun you could ever have with a rod and reel in your hand!  The king mackerel, despite slowly warming waters, can be found in the 30-35 mile range.  Look for 66 degree water and bait.  Black sea bass fishing has been very good, and has allowed us to make it through the shallow water grouper closure.  Closer to the beach, A few reds are starting to move around the inshore waters.  The bluefish are starting to show back up and I have heard a few preliminary reports of Atlantic bonito!  Click “MORE….” to view more pics!.......
