Hi folks,

It’s been a busy week as we welcomed a new edition to the family on Wednesday – Kevin Jeffrey deBrown, 9lbs. 2oz. 21 inches long – and I’m already teaching him how to cast.

The fishing has been excellent lately as the sports boats are all coming in with flags flying on the boat. The two top bites for the week have been dorado and yellowfin tuna.

The tuna are still around and are being found with porpoise.  Most of the tuna are football size, but there are still some big fish in the mix, with some pushing 200lbs.

Dorado are hot right now. Most schools are found  5 -10 miles offshore with the average between 5- 20lbs. We have seen some big bulls this summer, and it will stay good through the fall for dorado. My clients on Friday got onto a school of dorado and we stayed on them and had  a blast!  They were catching one dorado after another.

Sailfish are still being caught and in the mix are blue marlin and striped marlin. The striped marlin bite will go into full swing as soon as the water temps cool down a bit. If you enjoy marlin fishing, then this is the trip for you as striped marlin are a blast to hook up with. Please contact us for availability as we have some days available this fall for striped marlin trips.

The inshore water is cleaning up from the rain we had last week and some nice amberjack and pargo are being caught. The marina is also cleaning up nicely.

Tight lines,
