We still have Dorado and Striped Marlin dominating the fishing action.
They are plentiful and really close to home. The average size of the Dorado are starting to get much larger. These are a fast growing fish, and with smaller limits and people practicing better catch and release this has payed huge dividends.
October normally is the kick off of the Wahoo season. Unfortunately in the last couple of weeks we experienced a warming trend as the water got back up into the high 80’s. Don’t know why it just did. We should see it start to come down quickly as we would like to see 79-82 degrees to fire up the skinnies.
We have been purchasing some new and tuning up our existing wahoo gear in anticipation of another great wahoo season.
Both Blue and Black Marlin are hanging around the seamounts feeding on the Bonito and dorado that are in the area. It’s that time of year so if you’re looking for that personal best billfish mows the time to check that box.
For the most part the tuna have been a no show. A couple here and there or I saw them yesterday but the wouldn’t bite, that’s been the entire season.
That being said from now thru the end of the year is the heart of the season. I’m still optimistic.
We just purchased a fair amount of calamar in anticipation the bite will come. We will be ready when it does.
