Trip Info

The Catch
Dolphin (Mahi Mahi)
Tuna (Blackfin)

The King Mackerel bite has been good 85-110 ft of water.  King are schooled up on ledges and drop offs about 20 miles off the beach. They will be moving closer to shore as the water temps continue to rise. Hot lures have been Drone Spoons, the best colors are gold/sliver, yellow/sliver behind #2 planers with a 30 ft 80 lbs+  floro leader.  False albacore are hitting green or pink top water skirt rigs with sliver heads. They are feeding in the same area as the kings.
Gulf Stream: The Wahoo and Blackfin bite has been steady in the Gulfstream. This week should been really good with the calm winds and warmer water temps. The 240 line has been producing a solid black fin bite. Early morning has been the best time to catch black fin. They are biting a 6 squid UV teasers with a small pink/sliver or blue/sliver chase bait set back in the choppy water about 200 ft back on the shot gun or long out rigger. You will find Wahoo in the same area. Planner rods are catching the most Wahoo as of late. Small blue/black or black/purple IIanders rigged with a ballyhoo will turn the Wahoo on.
