We made it another week with great water clarity. The water temperature has continued to climb and by this afternoon (Wednesday June 8th), it was 84 degrees. Bait has finally arrived but not as thick as normal. The King bite was MIA until today. A few Spanish continue to be caught daily. Bonito and Mahi also made an appearance. Tarpon schools have come through but only a few per day. Ladyfish and Hardtails are here daily. 


The King Mackerel have continued to elude us all week. However, today we had the best day in months. There were five fish decked and a few others lost. Natural bait proved to be the best choice. I got things started with a schoolie and missed a second bite. Then Eddie put two on the deck. Blasito decked the next one that was the biggest. Soon after that one, King put another scoolie on the gaff.

 

 


 

 

Spanish Mackerel have been around but you had to put in a lot of time to put a few in your cooler. The bite was slow. However, there were several nice size fish decked like this one Phillip is holding. Both natural bait and lures seemed to get their attention.

 

 


Mahi Mahi have finally shown this week. There have been at least 09 caught so far and quite a few more seen. All were “Chicken” Dolphin but still great table fare. They were caught on King lures, Pompano jigs and small Cigar Minnows. Jose got the first one Monday afternoon then Phillip and Hachid got three Tuesday. Wednesday a group of visiting anglers caught 5 and threw them all back. They did not realize there was no size limit in the Gulf.

 

 

 


 

This morning, the Bonito came in thick for about an hour. Several fish hit the deck before the school moved on. Marcus got lucky and holds one of the fish he caught.
