Captain Skip Dana Zone 2 Report

January 25, 2011

The fishing in Zone 2 has been very good over the past week. Several boats found the cobia on the beach this weekend between Deerfield Pier and Boynton Inlet. The majority of the fish were caught in the 15 to 25 foot depth. The fish are not overly picky. You can 
catch them on just about any live bait as well as artificial baits like jigs and rapalas.

There has been a very large school of Sardines right out front of Hillsboro Inlet as well for the past week or so. This is uncommon for our area, but they have been very plentiful. Let's hope they stick around for a while. They tend to bite best after first light.

The Sailfish are around, but not in the numbers that we saw earlier in the month. There have been some kings around and plenty of Spanish mackerel on the beach just north of Boca Inlet. They are feeding on the schools of ballyhoo, which are thick on the patch reefs right now. Grab a couple light weight rods and some jigs, spoons or some live shrimp and the kids will have a blast catching them.

Catchem Up!
