March Fishing

Trip Info


Hi everyone. It has been a long time since I posted a fishing report. We have had multiple cancellations in the month of February due to windy and wet weather. I also was in Cabo San Lucas Mexico for the last week of February on a vacation, and I was able to get a little fishing in too. We were able to put some yellowfin tuna in the boat in Cabo and have some great sashimi for a few nights! I came back to Miami last Saturday and had a fishing trip planned for Sunday. Once again that trip was blown out with strong 20 to 25 knot East winds. The rest of this week has been beautiful with nice calm conditions and warm temperatures. I was able to get out this week by myself to check conditions and how the fishing is before my trips this weekend. I will say the bait fish are still here in great numbers which is a huge plus. I was out by myself yesterday and I was able to put 2 nice kingfish in the boat on the first drift with live pilchards on the surface. And a nice big red grouper ate the bottom rod with a live pilchard. Fortunately for that grouper the season is closed and he was able to go back into his home and get a little bigger. After a few more drifts with no luck, I decided to venture off a little into a current rip I saw in about 300 ft of water. There, I found a huge floating log with barnacles all over it. First cast with a live pilchard yielded a nice 15 pound dolphin. I was able to pull another dolphin and a 16 inch triple tail off of the log before the action was over. Listening to the radio chatter it seemed to be a fairly slow day for most captains, so I was very fortunate to find that log and have it all to myself. The blackfin tuna should be making their annual migration any day now, along with the large dolphin. It looks like next week is going to be very windy once again. So lets hope the weather starts to become more consistent soon, so we can get more days to chase these wonderful fish!
Tight Lines!
