April 30

     Fishing has been good the last week of April with the Tarpon bite kicking into high gear yesterday.  The mass of fish in the harbor finally decided to start eating. It has been difficult to get bites the last few weeks as the school was settling in, but they are finally ready to feed. Offshore fishing has been pretty steady with dolphin, with the majority of the fish being caught a good distance from home.  The gulf stream has been 18-20 miles offshore, and the fish are a little further that that. There have been some sails and tunas mixed in also. The reef has been great with lots of nice yellowtail and mangrove snappers, and the occasional mutton;    There is good current and dirty water which makes bottom fishing productive. The permit spawn is happening now. This is a great time to catch one if you never have.   Also the South Atlantic Grouper season starts tomorrow.  It really is the best time of year for fishing right now with so much going on. The weather has been good with some wind to keep the temperatures down.  The forecast is steady at 10-20 from the southeast for the next few days with little chance of rain.   If you would like to get out fishing, give me a call at 305-923-6977.  I had a group cancel this week due to family illness, so I have openings.  Thanks, Capt.
