2009-03-13 - Getting Better
Wow it has been a pretty wild week down here in sunny Florida. The water temps are finely back to normal and we have some current. The cigar minnows and ballyhoo have been plentiful which sure makes for a super start to the day. We have had some Dolphin as well as Wahoo this week out in about 200̢۪ of water. Mostly on the troll and pitch baits [live], also some small Black fin tunas have been showing up at first light, pretty easy to find, just have to find the big war birds. The insides we are still have great luck with the Mackerels, all on minnows and Got_Cha lures. Again I have to give great complements the Penn with their new line of rods Torque, simple said OUTSTANDING. The reef edge has been very productive with nice 3 to 5lb yellowtails, great time on 12lb test. Live shrimp and ballyhoo stripes seem to work best for us. The best thing is we are also catching a few more Groupers, phew doesn̢۪t seem to be many around thou, bait of choice live grunts. The Cobias have really started to push down the reef edge too, again live grunts work wonders. The Sailfish have been spotty at best I believe Tuesday there seemed to be a little bit of a bite but over all slow for now. We should start to see some African Pompano any day now and I can̢۪t wait they are super fun on light tackle and they range from 15 to 40lbs. Well stay tuned we have a super busy week coming up lots of Ocean and Backcountry coming up!!
