Calm Weather Report

February 14, 2011

With the calm weather we had earlier in the week we were able to get out in the deep and had some great catches on the tilefish, we also had a coupe nice snowy groupers, most of the tilefish have been in the 360-390 foot range, the snowy’s were under a rock offshore.

Lot’s of small blackfin and skipjack tunas have been offshore between 200 and 400 feet, find the birds and put out some small feathers, strip baits,or a small cedar plug and the action has been almost nonstop. There have also been a few nice wahoo caught around the tunas schools so it wouldn’t hurt to add a big Bionic Ballyhoo and islander to the spread.

The last couple days the kingfish bite has really turned on for us just south of deerfield pier in the shallow water inside the second reef from 35-60 feet. Lot’s of small kings and spanish mackeral were in the same area but there are some big fish mixed in. Thursday afternoon we had 15 kings from 8-15 pounds. We’ve also been catching a few yellowtails, mangroves, and some nice size muttons in that same area.

I fished some clients on the Pop A Top this morning and the fishing was pretty slow. We missed one sailfish on the kite and had a couple king bites off San Remo, conditons weren’t the best, not much wind and south current so we made a move to my favorite spot the outfall off Hillsboro Inlet, put the spread back out and saved the day with a triple header on BOMBER bonitas. Should be great conditions for sailfishing this weekend. Tight Lines.
