As I sit here and write this report I’m watching our friends in the northeast getting hammered by blizzards and white out conditions. Hopefully everything will turn out ok for them. Thankfully, here in Florida we are enjoying cool weather and some good fishing. This cool weather to our north should push some sailfish down our way. Some of the local sailfish tournaments have been won by boats catching as few as 5 or 6 fish in two days of fishing. And although we have caught some, the sail fishing is leaving a lot to be desired. So as you read my report and see some of my pictures you will see that I have been fishing for what Mother Nature will give us.
Bottom fishing continues to produce good catches of groupers, muttons, yellow jacks and amberjacks. We are either anchoring up or power drifting some wrecks and rubble piles to produce some good catches. In addition to the bottom fishing we have also been catching our fair share of kingfish. We also added wahoo and some blackfin tunas to the fish box.
If you want to get in on some of the action give me a call and let’s set up a date to go fishing. The fishing should only continue to improve as we move on. Please remember to keep our service men and women in your thoughts and prayers.
Till next time, best of luck…
