The sailfish bite continues to be o.k. We have caught some but it’s really been a little slow on the sailfish bite. Most trips you may catch from 2 to 4 but there have really not been any big number days. We have caught our fair share but no really big numbers to talk about. If we caught as many free jumpers as we have seen in the last couple of days we would have some very decent numbers to post. There is a chance that the sailfish bite will improve as we move into spring. Last spring we had several days of 3-5 plus sailfish on a single trip. It seems tarpon have also been playing a little bit of a hide and go seek. Some days they have been on the beach and other days we have had to go into the bay to find them.
There are lots of species and they seem to get bigger the further we get into spring. I almost forgot one of the best things about spring, you don’t have to wake up early to go fishing. Most of my trips will start to take place from 12-8 PM. Another great reason for the late afternoon trips is that many times after 3 or 4 pm we will be the only boat out there. We literally have the whole playground to ourselves. If you want to get out there give me a call and we can discuss all the options available. As always please remember to keep our service members and first responders in your thoughts and prayers.
Until next time, Best of luck…
