Tuna and Dolphin....
After all the bad weather we had in June, not everyday but more than enough, last Wed.-Tues. the weather could not have been better. Seems like we are into a normal summertime pattern now with light winds and the occassional thunderstorm. The fishing is very good right now offshore. There are a lot of Tuna around the Floaters along with a few Mahi Mahi, and billfish seem to be everywhere. The rip lines are starting to form up now that there is a little more current offshore so there should be plenty of Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Billfish caught. Capt. Alex went 8 for 15 on wahoo with the A. Biddy group while fishing the grass line last Saturday, the largest went 40lbs. but there was a good mix of different size fish on it. I fished the line on Sunday, very briefly with the J. Long crew, and we went 3 for 3 on 20-30lb. Mahi-Mahi so it should be excellent fishing over the next few weeks for these species. The tuna bite has been steady but it has been fast. It was usually first thing in the morning and then it would shut down until later in the afternoon. Most days if you didn't have them by 10:00 a.m. you were out of luck. But, there are a lot of Tuna out there and if that is what your targeting you should have no problem at all. Some days they were in fairly close and other days you had to make the longer runs. Red Snapper are as plentiful as ever so no problem there. For those of you who like to fish for reef fish species, such as mangrove snapper, grouper, and cobia the bite has been very good for them as well.
