Trip Info

The Catch
Bonito
King Mackerel (Kingfish)
Seabass (Black)
Summary

The warmer temp are turning the fish on. The King Mackerel and bonita bite is really good in 80-120 ft of water.  Need to find water temps 62+ to catch these fish.  We have had some really good trips. Kings are biting on droon spoons gold in the morning and light green in the afternoon.  This colors match the color of the bait they are feeding on right now.  Bonita are feeding on the surface.  WOW this is a fun fish to catch. Great fighter. They are hitting green top water skirt rigs with sliver in the head.  Black Sea Bass have been biting while bottom fishing 6+ miles from the beach.  The fish are over good bottom structure feeding on bait fish. Fish with cut bait on bottom rigs (ballyhoo, squid). There have been reports that wahoo are feeding in the Gulfstream. The sailfish bite is starting to pick up.
