Fishing Is On Fire With The Arrival Of Pretty Water!

Fishing Is On Fire With The Arrival Of Pretty Water!

When you go out of the inlet and are greeted with beautiful blue water you know that fishing is going to be red hot! When I set the baits and look over the side and see that deep blue color, I know that the oxygen level in the water is very high. High oxygen is what makes saltwater the deep blue cobalt color. The bluer the water the more oxygen it has and when that is the case the fishing improves drastically. The mahi-mahi that you see in the picture is the biggest one we have caught on the reef in the last three years aboard the "Lisa B". This mahi is around 40 pounds and we caught several others pushing 25 pounds the last two weeks. This is a perfect time for you to go fishing because the pretty water is very close to shore. The mahi that we have been catching are located inside of 300 feet of water which is not much more than a mile offshore. You do not have to travel far to put up a nice catch! Blackfin tuna and sailfish have also been caught by anglers up and down our coast.
The weather looks to be decent for the weekend with the wind coming out of the east at around 10 to 15 knots. If you are traveling offshore in pursuit of a swordfish keep an eye out for weed lines as we have seen a push of seaweed later this week. The Mahi fishing after all of the rough weather should be excellent. The best of the sword bight has been on the deeper side in 1750 feet of water and the best bait this week has been the squid tentacle paired with an11/0 7691 style hook.
