Inshore and offshore fishing today

Offshore fishing has been tough. It makes it tough to decide what to do in the morning. Do we go offshore and fish for Mahi, wahoo, and tuna? or should we play it safe and stay inshore and try to catch some bottom fish for dinner? Sometimes, especially if we have a...

2 Half Day Trips Today

We had two half day trips today. Half days can be tough this time of year. On a half day, you don't have much time to fish, so as a Captain, I have to try to make it happen pretty quickly. On our morning trip, we fished out to 350 ft of water to start. It looked ok....

Shark Fishing in Calm Water

My customers today had a tough time offshore Sailfishing yesterday. We didn't stay long. Too bad too as conditions look great. Sometimes you have to make an "executive decision" and give up something on the fishing end so the customers are comfortable. So today, we...

Trolling Weedlines Offshore Today

We started the day with the intention of getting some live bait and fishing for Sailfish and whatever else wanted to bite. Hopefully some Black Fin Tuna, Kingfish or dolphin. It was a good plan, except the bait was non-existent. I have a spot that is usually foolproof...

Black Fin Tuna and Bonitos
