Cold Fronts

Capt. Dean Panos
January 25, 2022
Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

Sailfishing has slowed down this past week but with the past few cold fronts sending temperatures into the 40's and 50's, the sailfishing should pick right back up. Last few years the sailfishing in January has been mediocre, but February was much better. I anticipate the same for this February. We did have a couple of trips this past week where we did not catch any sailfish, but for the most part we are catching a few one each trip. With these past few fronts, the sailfishing will definitely improve and rather quickly. Besides sailfish we have been catching some mahis, a few blackfin tunas as well as some kingfish.

The daytime swordfishing remains excellent and we were on a great streak that started in November where we caught at least one swordfish on each trip. Unfortunately, that streak ended this past weekend although we did have a bite that trip but failed to hook up. Swordfishing is year-round, but October through February have been our best months. The swords have average from 80 to 250 pounds. Our best bait has been using bonita strips and luckily, we still have a big supply of bonita baits in the freezer.

We also did a trip to Bimini last week and the wahoos were biting while high speed trolling. There is nothing quite like the sound of a reel when a wahoo hits the lure at 15 knots. The wahoo fishing should remain strong in the Bahamas well into the end of February if not March.

We have been fishing practically every day. We fished 26 days in December and are on schedule to fish the same amount in January. With that said, now is the time to book your trips for the remainder of the winter. Open dates are not that easy to find but you can go to my website and use the online calendar to view open dates in February and March. Trips are filling up quick so book your trips early.
