Papa's Pilar Rum Fishing Report (02/26/21)

The Wahoo Bite is Back! 

This week we caught three wahoo on three separate trips aboard the “Lisa B”. Most of the time we are fishing planers targeting wahoo as well as anything else that will bite a bit deeper like kingfish and tuna.

The picture shown here is a long time great customer of our Mark Tsurkis with a big wahoo he caught while hi-speed trolling lures this week. Hi-speeding has become popular around the full moon. You see boats cruising at speeds up to 16 knots in search of a big wahoo. 

There is no bait used here, just lures like the one you see in the picture which happens to be a favorite color for wahoo which is pink and blue. The lure used here is an Islander lure combined with a few extra skirts to give it body. One thing I can tell you is that the bite from a wahoo going 16 knots is one of the most epic bites in fishing. The clicker on the reel starts screaming as line melts off the reel. Hi-speeding is something you should try so give us a shout and we can get you hooked up. 

Blackfin tuna have also been around with fish up to around 10 pounds. Most of the blackfin have been caught in 285 feet of water trolling around 9 knots. Try using a dark color small squid skirt daisy chain fished way back in the clean water behind the boat. The tuna get spooked by the boat so fished your lines far out. 

Get tight!

Fishing off of Miami has been Good but not great…we have been catching a mixed bag of sailfish king fish some Mahi and Swordfish out in the Swordfish grounds.

This weekend is supposed to be a little windier than it has been this week but still fishable somewhere in the 15 to 20 knot range Out of the southeast. Bait fishing has been pretty good with threadfin herring around government cut and cigar minnows and sardines off of key Biscayne and inside of Fowey. There have been enough bites to keep it interesting but it is not red hot.

Fishing definitely picked up this week, with more dolphin than we have seen in a while in anywhere from 100-300 feet of water. They were mostly schoolies In the 4-10 lb range and mostly on live baits, but some on the troll. also some sailfish and kingfish in the same depths on live baits!
