I would think a marlin would win the race. Saw a fair number of turtles and manta rays. Passed the one massive pod of dolphin that's been cleaning up the area for the past few weeks. I hope they leave something to attract the stupid fish. My hopes were up for a few groups of diving terns around the Horseshoe. Didn't see many sardines. No flyers. 75 and pretty blue. Saw some decent bright orange sargasso to a couple feet around, but no bait underneath. In time.


Looks like some northwest this week to keep things cool. I think a lot of yellowtail weren't ready to spawn, but they might still be woozy from watching the show and the full moon. The bite was late. It was good at the Island last week! Tides look to be getting better too after a few mellow afternoons. Just babies in close. Haven't heard any reports from Pando or Tortuga. I bet the jig bite gets hot this cycle, as well as the popper.


Tight Lines,

Out Sunday, 5-6-18, fished ballyhoo and a meat dredge from the haystack seamounts to the horseshoe and back towards the marina. Smooth as a pond. Nada. Green water rising to 75 degrees, Little bird activity, no turtles, many small patches of seaweed, a few jumping thresher sharks.

We found one small area about 19 out, 220 with a handful of marlin. One pulled a lure for 10 seconds and a couple tickles on the ballyhoo. Saw two dorado. Handful of flying fish. Nice day. Had a couple Humpbacks pass by and four Orcas.

Lots of big marks on the Reef. The finder didn't read well offshore. I didn't see anything, but a few flyers. Still ballyhoo in close. There was major bait a week ago in close. Inshore was coated with microscopic larvae. We must have returned up from the sargasso on the way in, but I started to see small bait on patches in the afternoon. It's out there somewhere. I think the cooler water will produce more bait this year. It's going to be messy and green in close for a month or more.
