Wahoo are Snapping!
In two trips earlier this week we caught five big wahoo right out front of the Hillsboro Inlet lighthouse. Fishing has been really tough the past few weeks but it finally broke out and I would suggest getting out there as soon as you can. We caught five wahoo trolling planer‘s between 150 and 230 feet of water. All of the bites on the wahoo were on the planer. The best color for us was a pink and crystal sea-witch as well as a blue and Crystal Seawitch. Both Rigs were fished with a Bonita strip. The best speed to get the bite was around 8.5 knots over ground. In addition to the Wahoo we caught several smaller blackfin tuna as well as a few nice kingfish. Everything was caught trolling. We did fish one live bait trip using kites but it was really slow. I think you need to cover some good ground right now to find the fish. We caught several sell fish on the troll this week as well.
Swordfish bite was slow for the last few days but may pick up any time as the migration is still happening.
Fishing inshore seems to be getting better so get out there!

Sailfishing conditions are improving a little bit today. It seems like some bluer water is moving in south of Fowey. A few of the guys have caught some decent number of sails in the last two days.
The Seraphim out of Ocean Reef Caught 10 sail fish yesterday. Today we caught a mixture of kingfish mahi Bonitos and a cero mackerel on a half-day. It looks like we will have some nice weather the next couple of days so probably a good weekend to try to get out
