February fishing report

     We've had a lot of changing conditions and winds lately.  The gulf stream has moved back offshore, and the north winds started blowing again today.  I fished the last few days out in the gulf, where we had nice weather with the strong south winds.  It was maybe 1 to 2 feet and the water looked good.  We caught a few cobias, lanes, muttons, yellowtails, and mangrove snappers.  Had another large kingfish on yesterday, but pulled the hook.  I don't think he was as big as the 68 pounder from a few weeks ago, but it was a solid 40-50lb fish.  The cobias have been in the 20-40lb range.  The tarpons started biting in the harbor with the warmer weather the last week,  but this north wind may shut that down.  I heard of a few of the boats caught 5 or 6 fish, so that's a good start to the season.  Offshore has been hit and miss, with some kingfish, a few dolphin, and a few sails around.  Hopefully this wind will blow itself out quickly.  It's supposed to be a nice weekend with 10-15 knot winds from the north northeast.  I have some open spots  if you're looking to get out there.  I can be reached at 305-923-6977.  Here are a few pics from the Christiansen  family from Tuesday.   

 Nice cobia on the Ultralight!
