Fish of the day was a Dusky Shark

Fish of the day was a Dusky Shark

I had a full day split charter today. 5 people sharing the boat. Our main target species was dolphin. The dolphin fishing has been generally good this summer, but the water is getting warmer and it is getting late in the season. Usually, the fish start moving out...

New day, Different Results

New day, Different Results

Yesterday I mentioned what a difference a day can make in the fishing. On Thursday, we had a great day and fishing was easy. Yesterday, on Friday, not so much. We only caught 3 "throwback" dolphin and we stayed late to do it.  Lots of boats, lots of Sargasso weed but...

What a difference a day makes

We only had a 6 hr trip today, but the fishing was very good out deep yesterday,  so I made the decision to go back to the area we fished yesterday anyway. It was really further than I should have gone on a 6 hr trip. Sometimes you have to send a little "over budget"...

Just a little too much wind

Just a little too much wind

I had a very nice family on board today. Mom, Dad, 2 older boys and one small boy and one small girl. The weather started out beautiful and it was pretty calm when we started fishing. Probably 1-2 ft seas and no white caps. We came to a nice Sargasso Weed line in...

Successful Half-Day Today!

Successful Half-Day Today!

What constitutes a 'successful day" varies depending on what the people are expecting. Most people have reasonable expectations. Naturally, as the guy that has to try to make their fishing wishes come true, I really appreciate the reasonable people. Today's folks just...

Non-stop action

Non-stop action

We have been catching fish every day. There has been good action with small dolphin and jacks and enough "keeper" fish to make people happy. By the end of the trip, we have had enough action to make the "fun" factor where it should be and enough fish for people to...

Good Action and Dinner

Good Action and Dinner

Different people have different expectations and goals when they go fishing. Some people are looking for that trophy "fish of a lifetime". Some people are just looking for a fun boat ride. Most people are looking for good action and dinner. My group today was like...

Monster Dolphin

Monster Dolphin

It has always amazed me how fishing can change from one day to the next. Yesterday we struggled early. Too weedy to fish and no fish when it was clean enough to troll for the better part of the morning. We eventually found fish in about 650 ft of water so today, I...

Struggled early, but finally found the fish

Struggled early, but finally found the fish

Today was not easy to start with. There was one big beautiful line of Sargasso weed inshore in about 340 ft of water. It was a perfect a line as you could hope to find. Unfortunately, the only fish I caught on it were small dolphin and small jacks. We worked it for...

Still dolphin offshore

Still dolphin offshore

The weather is great and there are still dolphin offshore to be caught. We've been fishing out deep most days. Usually between 400 and 700ft of water. There have been Sargasso weed lines of various sizes all throughout those depths. Plenty of places to troll along....

Plenty of action today

Plenty of action today

We caught a lot of fish today. There was plenty of action. Unfortunately, many of the fish we caught were too small to keep. We did keep about 7 for dinner, but we probably released about 30. I would rather be catching "keepers" but you have to take what the sea gives...
