Tropical storm Colin swept by us yesterday bringing some rain and gusty wind. I think we fared better than most of florida. We still have some wind out of the southwest, but not as bad as predicted. I think only one boat went out offshore yesterday morning before the squall came through. They caught a blackfn tuna and some bonitos before coming home.
The last few weeks have been pretty good on the Sea Change. We've had some dolphin, tuna, and plenty of bonitas offshore. Most of the dolphin have been small, but there are some bigger fish mixed in. The blackfin tunas are averaging anywhere from 5-15 lbs. The reef has been spotty with snappers and groupers. There wasn't much current to the west before this storm came through but i'm sure that will change. Fishing the patch reefs and channels has been good for grouper and snapper. Tarpon fishing has been decent, with lots of fish on the gulf and atlantic sides of the island. The sharks are mixed in with them and we've caught a few bull and lemon sharks while tarpon fishing. All in all a pretty good month! Once the remnants of Colin clear out, I think June will be a great month. If you are coming down and want to get out on the water, I can be reached at 305-923-6977. Thanks, Capt. Taylor
