|James Cawley with a nice mahi from April 27 |
fishing with Knot @ Work Charters
Offshore Report: Craig is hearing thatthe bite is excellent, with several large Wahoo being caught as well as blackfin tuna and lots of dolphin. The triple ledge and south hole seem to produce consistently. For dolphin look for some floating debris or grass. Reports say most are on the smaller side but there are a few bigger ones mixed in. Try trolling small to medium ballyhoo with blue / white and green / yellow skirts .Remember to keep a small casting rod rigged and ready to cast to the schooling dolphin. I like small 1/4 oz. jigs with soft plastics, rattletraps, Paul Brown's soft dine suspending jerk bait or a Zoom soft plastic jerkbait on an Owner Twist Lock hook or Gamakatsu weighted flutter hook. And of course the Amberjack bite is phenomenal but if you are trying to catch something to eat then who cares but for an awesome rod bending time you can't beat them. The bottom fishing has been great, with reports of really nice Vermillion Sanpper, Triggerfish, Porgies and Black Sea Bass. A great customer of ours has been catching some huge Grouper and can't wait for keeper season to open. He uses a custom jig that we sell here at Buck, Bass and Beyond called the Gator Man Jig - so come and get it!
