Beach water is hovering around 55/56 degrees.  Great
fishing nearshore with large Sea Bass (catch & release until
June 1st) & plenty of spiny dog sharks- as fast as you can
go on light tackle.  Won't be long before the water warms up
on the beach- awaiting the low to mid 60s so we can do
some work on the Spanish Mackerel and Atlantic Bonito.

Tuesday, March 12, 2013
Beach water temp. is up to 55 & rising.  Blues, Sea Bass,
Sharks nearshore.  Gulf Stream- good Blackfin Tuna bite
last week.  Look for the Spanish Mackerel to show up in a
few weeks, and, hopefully, a good run of Atlantic Bonito.  
Good Mackerel fishing in Florida this winter, so we hope to
see a good showing from them offshore in May.

enough to fish.  Dolphin and King Mackerel inshore of 12

We finally got some nice weather yesterday.   Thursday, we
were only able to make it 9 miles because of the wind and
seas, but the guys still pulled out a decent catch....they
landed 3 out of 6 nice gag groupers and several nice sized
Sea Bass.  Near the beach, good bite with Spanish Mackerel
& Bluefish.  

Saturday, May 12, 2012
Beach water temp. is 75 degrees, and we have been
blessed with some incredible spring weather lately.  Spanish
Mackerel fishing is strong near the beach...big fish and
good numbers.  We should start seeing good Cobia fishing
any day.  King Mackerel fishing is better than last
year...catching fish between 12 and 20 miles.  We are
looking forward to the Sea Bass fishery opening on June
1st, so we can keep the huge Sea Bass that are
everywhere.  Caught some real nice Groupers 24 miles off
today.  Mahi fishing picked up in the Gulf Stream, so we
should start seeing some inside 30 miles this week
sometime.

It's been a mild winter for us, and the fishing has been better
this year than the past two winters.  The beach water temp.
has been hovering around 54 degrees.  King Mackerel
fishing has been much more promising than the past two
years, and the Gulf Stream has had good Blackfin Tuna

nice Cobia caught in the 40 mile range; this Cobia from our
trip last week weighed in right at 70 pounds!
