Biting: Kings, Dollies, Tuna, Grouper

July 17, 2018

Some nice kingfish were caught during the Big Dog Fat Cat KDW tournament hosted at Sailfish Marina over the weekend.  Team Offshore Warrior landed a monster 57.4-pound king and Young Guns had the second heaviest king at 43.7 pounds.

Plenty of debris and sargassum offshore has made for very good dolphin fishing over the past couple weeks.  Team Knot 4 Play caught a box full of gaffer dolphin fishing off Miami on Sunday.  Captain Jimmy David, L&H Sportfishing, has been putting his customers on nice size dolphin on routine charters off South Miami also.

The bonitos are thick but there are still a few nice blackfin around as well.  Team Hoked Up caught a pair of nice blackfin in 160 water off Hillsboro Inlet on Saturday and team Sea Otter landed a nice blackfin off Boca over the weekend as well.

The yellowfin tuna are still around off Bimini but the sharks are even thicker.  The deep dropping has been very good.  Check out this 75-pound mystic grouper that team Sir Reel caught in 1300 feet of water during their HCB rendezvous at Resort World Bimini.
