Hi folks,

Last week we had a little of everything.  We started the week with beautiful conditions and fish in the area.  On Thursday, we experienced very hard winds from the North.  The wind kept all the anglers in the area off the water for three days.  The winds finally died down yesterday and we are back to beautiful weather and flat calm seas.  Our temperatures are perfect.  We have just a little nip in the air very early in the morning as the sun is coming up and we are having breakfast.  It is cool enough, that when the boats leave the dock for a day of angling some guests are wearing a light jacket.  These jackets are not staying on long as it is warming up quickly once the sun peaks over the horizon.

On the fishing front, the wind we experienced dropped the water temperatures in the area by about one or two degrees in some areas.  The fishing was slow the first day after the wind but has started to rebound over the past couple of days.  Inshore, we are still seeing good action for larger Rooster fish and Jacks even though we still do not have any Sardina in the area.  We do have some Mullet that has shown up in the area.  Even with the Mullet they are beginning to get very selective.   We are finding that some of them are very active while others will just not respond to any offering and this includes live bait.  This is the time of year when these fish start to enter the spawn so depending on what stage they are in, you could have some very hot and heavy action or just a “no thanks” as the fish ignores your offering.

Offshore the fishing for Marlin has slowed down from what it was a couple of weeks ago.  We still have fish in the area and today I saw more Bill fish flags than I have in the last week or so.  We have had a few Dorado in the area yesterday and today.  I heard on the radio today about a school of Dorado that kept anglers busy for a while.  As many of you know, we have not seen any Tuna over the past few weeks but a boat in the hotel found a few yesterday and once again today.  I hope this is a sign of good things to come.

 I am on the water every day for the next two months.  I will be sure to keep everyone informed of the action.

 Until next time….keep fishing.
