May Magic

Report Date: May 9, 2005

Rain, rain ,rain. What a way to start the month. We had some serious rain to start the month of May. At least it quit after a few days. With the rain and stalled front that brought it, fishing was a little slow for a few days. We missed a couple trips and caught just a couple fish over the first few days of the month. Friday, that all changed for the better. The front got through, the wind came up from the northeast and the Gulf Stream current moved near the reef. This brought a day with 4 sailfish, a 25 pound king and a tarpon for Dick Dolloff and his guest from Seattle Washington.

Friday night we fished with a couple fellows nad jumped a sailfish before going for tarpon. The tarpon have been a little slow to start at night, but after dark the action has been good. As soon as darkness fell the guys caught a couple tarpon before going home.

Saturday was extra special as a mother took several friends of her family fishing for a Mother?s Day sailfish. Carrie Ferguson of Lake Worth, Fl. Brought Matt Mills, Claes Bell and Nick Freeman out on her adventure. They caught 6 sailfish, 2 dolphin, 2 barracuda, 2 bonito and a king mackerel. For a great day on the water. They fished from 100 to 200 feet of water off Key Biscayne with kite and flatline herring and sardines.

May should bring plenty of dolphin into our waters. Blackfin tuna, sailfish and king mackerel should keep smiles on anglers faces daily. Tarpon and snook will be hot near shore. We will be presenting a seminar on dolphin fishing at Dusky Sport Center 110 N. Bryan Road Dania Beach at 6 PM on May 19th. Call 954-922-8890 for details.
