Into The Bite
Into The Bite
March 16, 2023
Good Morning Anglers, For the past 3 weeks our crew has been busy with routine maintenance and vessel improvements. Pipe Dream III is on the water and ready for some red hot action. The near shore Black Drum bite is turning on and should be productive for a few more weeks. Along with the Black Drum, nice size Whiting, Red fish and Sheep Head are bending the rod. Venturing a little further offshore fishing the reefs and wrecks the Black Sea Bass, Trigger fish, Amberjack and the Red Snapper are wearing out the anglers. For those of you that have the endurance the Goliath Grouper will certainly test your strength. NOAA has not announced a Red Snapper season for 2023 but when they do there will be no problem limiting out. There is some discussion by SAFMC for a recreational Red Snapper permit. We will keep you posted of further developments. Cruising 50 miles offshore bottom fishiing for Vermillion Snapper, Amberack, Cobia, Trigger fish, Mangrove and Mutton Snapper has been red hot with nonstop action. On a recent trip Pipe Dream III began the day trolling at the 50 mile location. It wasn't long into the day and the action started with Mahi, Kings and Sails. After some exciting trolling action the crew wanted some deep drop bottom bites, with Vermillion Snapper, Mangrove and Mutton Snapper, Amberjack and Triggers, the crew came home with a nice box of fish. Moving on out to the Gulf Stream the Wahoo bite has been showing alot of action along with Sailfish. In the next few weeks the Mahi and Black fin tuna should be showing up in good numbers. Trolling and targeting Mahi can make a very exciting day as the acrobatic Mahi dances across the surface of the Atlantic showing off their beautiful colors. With the arrival of Spring Break begining next week and continuing for the next couple of weeks bookings have been brisk and with summer just around the corner the vacationers have us busy booking into July. If you are interested in a great fishing excursion onboard Pipe Dream III Call Capt. Scott or Robin at Pipe Dream Charters.
