Cool Runnings

Posted on December 4th, 2008 by Captain

The weather has certainly changed as we are experiencing a cold and windy season so far. The ups and downs of the vast ocean are nothing new but wow does my back get tired after 6 hours in 4-6 foot seas.

A nice Sailfish bite continues as proven in the miami tournament with well over 300 Sailfish caught and released. If you can find a nice rip in a north current you might get some smokin action. We were slow trolling live baits in 400 feet of water and found an aggressive Sailfish chasing our baits. Jason Bourne of North Carolina made quick work getting his fish to the boat.

The Kingfish action we rely on comes and goes but as the winter progresses we expect them to show up everyday. A few Mahi-Mahi are around and heading south fast. They are one of my favorites to set up on.

The Dark Side of the Moon Swordfishing tournament is this coming weekend and the weather and moon look like they will be cooperating together. Lets hope for the best and good fishing to all.
