For the past week most of the boats have been fishing inshore for roosterfish and snapper. Today was much of the same but there were some boats running offshore to fish for the big game and first reports are the offshore bite was better.
Captain Kevin on the “Hoo’s your Daddy” has been banging around the inshore rocks all week and picking up good numbers. The highlight of the week was probably the 125 plus pound goliath grouper they caught on a butterfly jig. Yesterday Captain Kevin caught a nice cubera, a mackerel, a couple roosterfish and a half a dozen big jack crevelle. Today they caught a 50 plus pound Cubera and 4 Roosterfish with one of them being in the 70 pound range.
The guys on the “Fandango” caught 8 roosterfish today…they fished Negritas and a couple spots closer to the marina.
Captain Dave on the “Missbehavin” caught a couple roosterfish and a couple dorado.
Captain RJ on the “Predator” caught 2 tuna, 2 rooster and 2 mahi mahi. RJ reported the water was loaded with logs and was filthy greenish brown in color. RJ did say the live bait is thick on the inshore rocks. RJ said he was catching 4 or 5 bluerunners on each sabiki cast.
I heard rumors of a decent offshore bite and I am trying to confirm. I heard boats were averaging 2 or 3 sailfis, a few dorado and some tuna. There was talk of a big marlin being caught but I have not been able to verify.
