Action for All

This week supplied enough action for both game fishing enthusiast and hard core food fisherman. The wind was going from the north to the south to the southwest and back again all week long. The fish had to be getting confused, but it did not seem to confuse their desire to eat. We fished the Cutting Edge most of the week and caught 16 Sailfish, our limit of Dolphin 3 days and lots of Bonito. When the wind blew from the Southeast the Dolphin fishing came alive. With most of the fish in the 4 to 5 pound range and close to the edge, they were supplying lots of action. They have been spotted chasing flying fish and busting in the grass patches. This week with the moon getting smaller the fish were feeding more during the day and easy to get to bite. When the wind blew out of the north and east the Sailfish came alive. The fish have been in tight to the edge, with most of the action in 80 to 125 ft. This week we found the fish biting the bigger baits better then in past weeks when the fish were eating pilchards and threadfins best. In the keys the boats fishing out of Ocean Reef found the fishing to be on the slow side, much of the Sailfish action remains best to the north. Dolphin fishing was also on the slow side, many of the Ocean reef boats have been running north for the better action. As the months tick away bottom fishing should start to get better to the south, mutton fishing started getting good last year this month. The wrecks have been producing Amberjacks and a few Groupers, but I recommend leaving the jack alone while they are spawning. The Amberjack population is getting to an all time low and should be left alone for a while.

On the inside Tarpon fishing slowed the past few weeks, I did see a few rolling by the inside of Bill Baggs state Park on Key Biscayne. The best bait this time of the year is Shrimp. Some big Barracuda have moved in around the channel markers in the hawks channel area.

Outlook: Fishing Should remain good and with another cold front pushing through this week it could get even better. Bait has been good in Government Cut and in Hawk's channel.
