Mahi, Kings, & Barracudas

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017


Yesterday we experienced our first cold front of the season. Wind was out of the NW which allowed us to still be out on the water. When the wind is being blocked by the land (NW) we are able to venture out as far as the wind effect allows. You can easily see when looking offshore where the really big waves begin. Very distinctive humps can be seen on the horizon marking the waters very rough along with a large ocean swell.  Luckily our deep water drop off is very close to shore, only 1.5 miles offshore, allowing us to fish in relative calm conditions.  Trolling these waters produced Mahi, Kingfish, Barracuda, and Bonito on a refreshingly cool crystal clear South Florida day.

 

 

Another great day of Mahi fishing

             ,
Ed Reed, Will Reed, and Marc Thomas had a great day catching 23 Mahi today. These fish were found fishing along a weedline about 10 miles offshore. October is turning out to be a very productive month for mahi. Thankfully the weather has cooperated enough to give us the needed conditions for running offshore. There are still openings available to experience this fall run of Mahi fishing so click on reservations and pick out your day!

 

 

 

Venturing far offshore in search of Mahi

David Panella caught this Mahi trolling far offshore today as the gulfstream has currently moved east around 15 miles offshore. unfortunately the gulfstream moves like a snake so on one day it may be at the sea bouy and the next day 15 miles offshore. It is essential to locate this north flowing current in order to dramatically increase your chances of hooking up with Mahi. This deep blue water holds the sargassm weed that the Mahi feed under. The weather was perfect and several mahi were located and put on ice for dinner.
