Tis the Season

Report Date: December 6, 2010

  November has been a very busy month for me this year. Between charters, tournaments, Bahamas trips, and some private jobs I havenÔŅĹt had much time too rest.

Starting with the sailfish. There was a very good stock of sails early in the month between Boynton Inlet and Hobe Sound. Private boats were catching over ten fish per day with plenty of bycatch such as big dolphin, wahoo, and king just too name a few. I managed to get a taste of the action fishing off Jupiter with my best day being ten sailfish. We went through over two hundred baits that day.The bonitas, dolphin, kingfish, barracudas, and sharks ate us alive. The sailfishing towards the end of the month was all right in front of my backyard. The best day I heard of was the Midnight Blue catching 23 in one day fishing off Miami. There was a strong north wind with a good north current causing the fish to tail down sea. When this happens the tower boats have the advantage being able to sight the fish coming from far distances.

I made two Bahamas trips last month. On both trips we averaged between four and six wahoos. The average size being around 35lbs. The biggest being 56lbs. We also managed to come across some big dolphin while high speeding the edge. The weather was flat calm both trips which made the crossings very comfortable. Bimini is located 50 miles east of Bakers Haulover . On a calm day it will only take us about 1 hour and a half to reach the Bahamas. It is nice fishing the Bahamas in the winter because there is not much traffic. Less competion means more fish.

The Spanish mackerel fishing has been great this month. We target them in the shallow waters live chumming pilchards. You can literally hand feed these fish when they get chummed up. Fishing light tackle with artificials is also very fun. The charters and the kids have a blast doing this because it is non stop action. Besides from the mackerel the bottom fishing has been on fire as well. We had some good wreck fishing days with assortments of amberjacks, mutton snappers, and African pompanos just to name a few.

Do to the weather being rough I have only had a few oppurtunities to go swordfishing. We were able to catch a few nice swords in the day time.

With the cold fronts on there way the fishing is going to progress.Whether its action you want or if its targeting that big trophy fish of a life time we will give 100% effort to make sure we produce for you.
