January 31, 2010 – good sailfish and mahi mahi bite


The fishing was good today considering it was a full moon.  There were lots of sailfish and mahi mahi around and everyone was averaging a half dozen sailfish releases and 2 to 5 mahi mahi.  I heard a rumor of a good marlin bite from some private boats but too far out for the charter guys.

The 32′ Irwin Forbes took two guys offshore and released  6 sailfish and kept 2 nice mahi mahi for the griddle.

The 28′ Carolina Classic took a couple guys out and released 7 sailfish and a few mahi mahi.

The 26′ Regulator took a couple out yesterday and they released 10 sailfish and caught a few mahi.

The 60′ Bertram took 5 lucky guys out yesterday and raised a dozen sailfish and caught 3 nice mahi mahi for their dinner. I’ve been 30 miles out on this boat catching yellowfin and sailfish while watching Texas play Oklahoma in college football…it’s like heaven.

My buddies took our boat out and caught 4 nice mahi mahi and a couple sailfish…they were 18 to 24 miles out.
