Fishing Report 6/21/14

Saturday, June 21st, 2014

The fishing continues to be red hot as the prime season is upon us. Inshore, there are still a good number of Red fish, Trout and Flounder being caught. We have been catching Cobia and large Amberjack in 50-60 ft of water within six-ten miles of the beach. Look for live bottom ledges and buoys that hold bait. King Mackerel have also been biting within the same water depths which is good news for the smaller boats, who can safely access these great game fish now. Live bait has been the trick for Cobia, Amberjack, and Kings. The dolphin bite continues to be good and there are still a few billfish being caught. The Grouper bite is starting to heat up in the 60 ft and out range. On our half day Spanish and shark trips this last week we have been catching good size Black Tip sharks within a mile of the beach.

Fishing Report 6/13/14

Friday, June 13th, 2014

The fishing continues to be hot, from the beach to the Gulfstream. The Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish are biting well from the beach out to the three mile mark. There have been a few Cobia caught close to the beach and the action should pick up as I write this report. The King Mackerel are still holding in the 70-80 feet of water, but will be moving in closer with the bait in the next couple of weeks. The Grouper and assorted bottom fish are biting from 60 feet and out. Sardines and live bait seem to be producing the most right now. The Dolphin bite continues to be at its peak with the smaller ones being caught within 12-15 miles out and the larger ones in 130 feet out to the break. The Blue Marlin bite also continues to be at its peak and should last for a couple more weeks. We released a Sailfish in the Gulfstream this last week and they should be moving in closer as the bite peaks in July-September. There is a scattered Wahoo and Tuna bite but they are not as prolific as the other species mentioned above right now.

Give us a call to get in on the action!

The fishing nearshore and offshore has been good to say the least. We have been catching Spanish Mackerel and Blues close to the beach, and it will not be long before the King Mackerel and Cobia get thick as well, as they move in with the bait from offshore. The Kings and Cobia can be found in the 70-80ft depths trolling live or dead baits and spoons. The Grouper and other bottom fish have started biting well from 60ft out to the break. The Dolphin (Mahi) have  been biting well from 130ft and out, but we have had some in as close as 11-12 miles or 70ft of water. The Blue and White Marlin have been biting good in 50-100 fathoms or 350-600 ft of water. If you would like to catch a Marlin, mid May thru June is the best time of the year. The fishing is hot this time of year! If you would like to get in on the action give us a call.
