The green water has made it tough here lately and is still covering the fishing grounds. We scratched it out today going 3/3 on sailfish raising one more to a dredge that didn’t eat and boxed two mahi over 20 pounds. Not bad, but hoping for more billfish bites tomorrow!
Fun Day on the water today going 7/8 on sailfish tagging 6 of them. Lots of laughs, and much more like Grenada fishing! Here are today’s notes:
1/12 81 degree water, green but cleaner then yesterday. Winds ESE 15
853 Double header sails and tagged both
9:05 release sail on party skirt right flat tagged
915 release sail left flat tagged
948 release sail left long tagged
Green water with a little
11:26Released 1/2 sailfish on the flat lines one naked one party skirt
Pushing down ran into the water that was green and has the scattered weed in the water and on top like I saw yesterday that was unproductive so pushing back up
258 release and tag sail left flat peeled off downsea blue double dredge
Not much to report today. The Green water continues to linger here and not helping matters. Barracudas were tearing us apart today. Covered a lot of ground and didn’t see much to it at all. Winds ESE at 15-20. Nada
We went for wahoo this morning on Exile 45 and went 2/2 on 30-40 pound wahoo then bounced offshore a bit pulling plugs looking for a blue marlin but just had two sailfish come in and go after two of the lures but didn’t come tight. Plenty of meat for dinner!
I’m a little behind here but we got out four days ago for a 5 hour am trip and were very short crewed. An aged to hook a couple of sails out of 6 bites but no releases. Fun little shake down trip to see what’s up.
Yesterday we did a morning trip again and went 2/3 on sailfish and had another on the right teaser but it didn’t switch. We also had a tuna pile on the 30# setup but popped it off early on – blessing in disguise.
Today we made it out for 4 hours targeting wahoo and caught 3/5 wahoos.
There has been some greenish water around but the fishing is remaining decent. Looks like we will have a few days off here before things heat up.
