Fishing Seasons in Transition

Report Date: December 16, 2016

Well, the fishing seasons are changing. There are just two weeks left to harvest grouper until next May. Snook season is now closed till February. The good news is that on January first we can harvest golden tilefish again.

Good bye groupers

The shrimp have been running for about a week. More and more tarpon are appearing daily. We have seen more juvenile kingfish over the last few weeks than we have seen in years. Let's hope that points to a positive future.

Tarpon season is here

That's called a smoker kingfish

Sailfish, from little 4 footers to big ladies, have offered almost daily action. The dolphin have been biting every day the wind blows. This is a lot better than our miserable summer dolphin catches.

Father and son each caught first sailfish

Wahoo make a great day

Amberjacks come with cooler waters

As if we needed more good news, we have seen more wahoo over the last few trips than we saw all year.
