2009-04-18 - Sails are Tailing
Sailfish, Sailfish and more Sailfish!! That was the game this week and what a great time it was. The weather and the fish finally agreed with each other. So you understand what Iâm talking about let me explain. We enjoyed what we call tailing condition. This is when we have a real strong northeast current running into east or northeast wind. The seas can get pretty rough but the fish love it all up on top swimming down sea into the current, you can see them coming from a pretty good distance which helps to have the boat in position. The tailing started on Monday and everybody had double digits, I donât think anyone saw less than 50 plus fish they were everywhere. Tuesday was ok in the morning most had at least 4 to 6 we had 5 and the wind just fell right out. We did also score a real nice Bull dolphin which was around 35lbs along with his buddy who was only about 10lb, both ate live ballyhoo. The rest of the day we went in and caught our limit of Yellowtails up to 4lbs, we did catch one that 5 ½ lbs Lunker! Wednesday the weather was to nice so we decided to do some reef fishing and we did with great success both Thatâs Right and the CC fished and both of us had super catches of yellowtail and Capt Andrew fishing the CC had several nice Mutton Snappers and lost a nice grouper. TR well we lost a nice Cobia but did manage our limit of large tails and 1 sailfish. The rest of the week Friday and today left us chasing the Sails once again the wind is blowing 20 out of the NE so here we go average has been 6 to 12 per boat so that has been a great way to close out Sailfish season. Now we should be moving into Dolphin real soon thereâs been a few guys out there in the middle of the week when the wind laid out and had some success mostly on a pc of dabre, the biggest one I heard of this week was 52lbs. We are aliitle quit for the next few days and then we start up with a few Tortugas trips as well as some more swordfising. P.S. If ANYONE is interested I need two or three people to help out with the Shark Tournament on June 18,19th if so give me a shout Thanks.th
