Getting Caught Up - Fishing Report - Aboard Knot Nancy

Capt. Dave Kostyo
July 9, 2017
Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

It's been a while since my last report. During this time Nancy and I have taken a vacation to see relatives, the tarpon action during the evening was very good, and most currently, the dolphin/mahi action has been excellent.

After returning from vacation, I finished out the remainder of June with some very good tarpon action during the evening. We averaged between 2 to 6 tarpon on each trip and landed and released 50% of the fish we hooked. The fish ranged in size from 30 to 90 pounds. Several anglers caught their first tarpon and are now hooked on tarpon fishing.

Moving offshore, the best and most consistent action has been with dolphin/mahi. Time to burn some fuel as it's a bit longer run to get out to the area where the action has been taking place. The area between 900 - 1000 has been the best producing depths. Find a small group of sooty terns and you'll find the dolphin. The fish have mostly been small schoolies in the 20 - 26 inch range. There have also been many undersized fish. If you find one of these groups, catch a few, throw them back , and move on.

The weed lines have been scarce. Mostly scattered grass with the exception of my last trip on Saturday. We found a nice weed line and it was holding fish. We also found a log that had several tripletails on it. We caught 3 of them.

That brings me up to date. Time to load up the boat and get out there again.
