From 5-7p.m. Haven't heard from the last couple of days. A few marlin were released. Heard a couple 15-18# Dorado were brought in. Some Bonita were reported. Corvina have been around. 1st place at the lake last week for 10 had a 5.7# average.

Big surprise yesterday......a 40# female dorado (yes weighed on tested scales for accuracy). Not only have we not seen one of those in quite awhile but expecially this early in May.  Lots of "doritos" out there.

Nice.  Keeping my fingers crossed that dorado are actually making a bit of a comeback.  A year of COVID may have removed enough pressure to let the fishery recover a bit.  Keep it up, and don't take the females (unless the hook goes thru their eyeballs).

The Dorado have shown up the 1st and second week of May as long as I can remember. Clockwork.

But a 40 lb female is remarkable as usually the small ones arrive 1st in the last 45 years I have fished here.

That fish has grown considerably in the last day. Friend is claiming a 30# cabrilla, 50# YT from the other side, and 300# Blue lost. We're even rigging scales now. Sounds like something else that happened last year.


Some marlin within a few miles. Baby Dorado. Tons of small bonita.

was glad to catch the "big one" as didn't have to mess with the doritos.  Yes I agree throw the females back however they are so small they injure easily  I would rather just leave the area when we see a school of doritos and don't have to watch other boats catch over 50. Have seen that enough to puke.  Are we guilty - only to the point of picking a couple for dinner. All they have to do is wait a few more weeks and they will be bigger.  Guess the saying goes "If I don't get it today then you will tomorrow".
Water temps running 75 F plus which I think is a few degrees about normal for this time.

Haven't heard anything from offshore after the blow. Some cooler water circling in from that side. They bit good yesterday afternoon and very early this morning. Lots of small Dorado. A few to 10#. Bigger fish to the far south. A few Blues were lost in close last week. Good numbers of Stripes and sails in pockets in close. They are finally biting better.

Sounds like fun for sure, but zero dorado in what has always been the peak of dorado season isn't particularly encouraging.  Used to have ice chests full by 10a that time of year, admittedly a generation ago.  Still, zero ?

Whatever. Lots of Dorado in close. Some of the guys were trying to break their riggers with flag contests last week. They were jumping all around at sunset. Most are within a couple miles. Albeit small, but at least they aren't an insulting size to keep now. Many are 6-8# now. Friend had one 18# in close yesterday, and we lost one a touch smaller the day before. Some in the teens. Looks like a nice break forming outside, and pulling in from the other side. Maybe the better seaweed is with it that was stuck on the other side, and not really broken off due to much swell. They are getting nice 20-50# Dorado down south, and the fish were bigger every week. Mangoes seem late this year. Not much for flying fish yet. I think that the season is still starting up, yet I like the heat less every year. I'm still young enough not to have a delusional memory though and think that every time we filled the box, unless you fished in the 60's, and then I will  definitely question your recollection.

Sorry to tell you my memory is really quite good.  Even have 100s of minutes of video to prove it.  For the entire 90s and first few of the 2000s I can honestly say I never once got skunked on Dorado in May/June.  Not even once.  Every trip yielded no less than 1 in the 40# range, plenty in 30# range.  Billfish, once we got past the thrill say after the 1st 20 or so released we actually avoided them.  Could still get hit and obviously did now and then but did what we could to limit the chances. 


Dorado were plentiful in the 75-80deg range, always May, June.  By July dorado would be hit or miss, ok if you got around a nice paddy.  What I was hoping  for was the 1-1/2 years of COVID might have given the fishery a chance to come back.  Maybe next year.

Dive Urge:  Agree with you but sometimes in May we would pray for 70 degree water by Memorial Day so larger dorado would show up.  Don't know what  is going on now but I still say "If you don't get them today I will get them tomorrow" and that is the mind set around here even from people I never would  think would think that way. And I'm talking about the "Doritos". We remember the "long lines" full of every size of dorado and then they couldn't even find any to make a living.  I see and hear of larger ones further south but I honestly don' t hear of them being plentiful.

I wish I had a selective memory like that. I guess we and everyone around us didn't know how to fish then. Yes, the squid have migrated off and the fishing isn't quite normal, or up to par. Currents change. The Gulf Stream has 100 year cycles, magnetism is off, currents different. Sure, overfishing. There are fish out there if you get off the barstool and wet a line.

The sweet spot on the calendar for dorado used to be the ladies tournament on Memorial.  If you can dig out the results for the last 25 years I am pretty confident you'll see the evidence.  Anyone who denies the decline is completely full of crap.  


Fished the other side for like a week, shockingly slow on the troll.  Caught all of 1 dorado released because it was like 5lbs.  Definitely a disappointment.



Now I would be the 1st one to celebrate a return, and been waiting.  I sold my boat around '07 when the fishing was tailing off noticeably.  I am thinking about buying one again but I'm just not excited about trolling around burning gas and getting skunked or pulling in a billfish or 2.

Magnetism ?  Sounds like a fairy tale.  We saw quite a respectable sized fleet of trawlers while we were out.  Deplete the baitfish and what's left of the sportfish will find other places to run.
