Monday was LOADED with bites. Top boat had 21 White Marlin, then 17, 14, 13, 10, 9, 9, 8, 7 and a Sail, 7, 5, 5 and a couple more that were mixed with other fish.
Over 140 bites for the day made a lot of people pretty happy! There was a great catch of Yellowfin Tunas and some Dolphin and Wahoo brought in too. The fishing is really doing some business with all the life going on in the ocean right now. There are SO MANY Marlin swimming out there! There are hundreds and hundreds of fish seen every day! These fish are hard after bait balls of Pilchards (Sardines) and are schooling them up to the top to slowly pick at them and get their bellies full. We in return get to witness the fish breaking through the surface "cutting". This is how these fish get named- "cutters" and they are no joke. Their colors are lit up and glowing through the blue water. Its more fun to experience in person of course but once you have seen what Im talking about you will never forget! The water is crystal clear and there are loads of fish chasing and darting at the baits. Its some of the most exciting fishing you can ask for. The Yellowfin and Dolphin are still out there in all of this life as well, and its pretty much why we have seen so many Blue Marlin this past week. The month is nowhere near over and we still have our fall fishing to look forward to. Do not forget the Inshore fleet that is steady getting their rod tips bowed over with Speckled Trout and Puppy Drum. Some of our favorite fishing is right in our backyard. There was also a Cobia caught by a cute lady angler that was a STUDDDD fish and also had one caught on a Nearshore boat. Nearshore also caught Spanish Mackerels, Bluefish and Triggerfish. Triggerfish are some GOOD eating and so are our Blues and Macks. If you get catch some Bluefish and Spanish with us make sure you try to make some fishcakes with them! You will not be disappointed!!!
