Storm Fallout

Capt. Bob Brown
September 20, 2008
Marathon - Saltwater Fishing Report

Well the plus side of having a hurricane move through your area from a fishing standpoint is that lots of debris finds it's way into the water. While this might pose a hazard for boats moving about, it creates a condition that the Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi) can dwell upon. The large amounts of debris from hurricane Ike's passing by Cuba and whipping strong winds through the lower Keys, has made the offshore fishing a paradise the past week or so with some large schools of Mahi showing up all over the place under large pieces of debris floating up the gulfstream from Cuba. The fish have been mostly in the 10lb range but large schools and plenty of schools to find. Out on the current edge, the bite can be fast and furious with some easy pickins on the schoolie sized Mahi. Some larger fish have been showing up from time to time around some of the large debris, and a Marlin or two have been in the vacinity of some of these large schools. Wahoo have been common around the larger specimens of junk floating out there, and tons of bar jacks, triple tail, and other exotic offshore smaller species. Look for this to continue as long as there is a supply of the floating junk coming by the Keys in the next few days and weeks. Good luck in all your fishing adventures!
