March 17, 2010 – offshore bite good for some

The offshore bite continues to be good one or two days and then slow one or two days.

The 33 Proline went for 4 for 8 on sailfish today and also caught a couple nice mahi mahi.

The 35 Ocean went 2 for 4 on sails yesterday and caught a couple mahi mahi…one in the 60 pound range.

One of the better private boats went 1 for 3 on sailfish a couple days ago.

Half day trips have been tough this week with the slower bite…if you got 1 or 2 fish on a half day you did better than most.

I talked to one of the best captains in the marina today about the fishing this year.  He has been down here 25 plus years and has caught more fish than he can count.  He said for a El Nino year the fishing is still good.  He told me about one El Nino year in the late 90’s and he said you could,t have caught a fish with dynamite.

I am leaving in the morning for my tarpon trip to Nicaragua…hopefully the big boys will be biting and I’ll have some snook to the dinner table.
