Report Date: April 21, 2004
Stop the wind! We have been blown away by the wind half the time this month. We caught a tarpon, a mackerel and some blue runners with some great young boys last week. They almost caught 2 tarpon, but one chewed through the leader. The next night we caught a tarpon over 150 pounds. That was a 2 hour and 20 minute fight that will stick in our minds for a while.
Dr. William Nusz fished with us Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It was rough and rougher. He ended up with a good catch for the 3 days. His total was 5 sailfish, good fights from 4 big hammerhead sharks, never did get one close enough for pictures. A wahoo, a nice blackfin tuna, dolphin, kings and bonito filled out his action card.
The weather is improving and the fishing calendar is full for the next week, so hopefully we will have lots to report next week.
April is here. Look for a run of big king mackerel this month. Blackfin tuna will appear in good numbers. Both of these fish will feed very well at sundown. The good news is that Daylight Savings Time started on April 4th, meaning sundown is about 7:30 at night. Lots of fishing time after work hours. Sailfish will be very active all month, dolphin will bigger and more abundant, tarpon will be very hungry and snook will move out toward the inlets. It is time to GO FISHING!
Mark your calendar. We will be doing a dolphin seminar at Dusky Sport Center on May 27th from 6 to 8:30. I hope we see you on the rip, Bouncer
