Last couple of weeks fishing has been great
Last week we had a couple of trips and one ten hour we had 20 head of dolphin all gaffers which was great conserding we did not get away from the dock until 9 am we were suppose to leave the dock at 7 am worked out great but that’s not always the case.
The next day we had a 8 hour with some a nice family of 3 and we went after the dolphin again but they moved on we only had 5 head biggest one went 25 pounds they had fun and were happy they never had dolphin before and when they got home they cooked it up and they called me to let me know how good the fish was.
The next day we had a 10 hour and bombed out on the dolphin so we came in and did some bottom fishing and caught some very nice red snapper and some grouper along with some stringer fish (triggers, sea bass, lanes).
Other boats reported the same along with some nice Wahoo and a few sailfish.

The next week fishing was still good but no dolphin but some good bottom fishing and allot kings and on a 4-hour trip we had on the 12 th we had a limit of kings along with a 25 to 30 pound black fin tuna. We were in 70 feet of water 12 miles out.

Dolphin have been around 160 feet to out to 350 along with the Wahoo
Kings are on the reef s in 70 feet to 100 feet.
Bottom fishing the best of it has been on the 100-foot reefs.
