Really close to the full moon they will eat overnight & not eat as well during the day. Spring time means they are much closer to shore so runnin-gunnin isn't as effective. Time for live baits on the edge. I'll be out tomorrow on a 3/4 day. Should have a report.

Last weekend there was a ton of ideal weed between here & the sword grounds but zero bait on any of it.

Nice. Went snapper fishing with a friend down in Miami a week ago and hooked a bunch of Muttons and could only get a couple to the boat because of the tax man.

Slow day today. South current, north wind that died out around noon & went to bump trolling. Fish ate all night & yesterday. Managed a king, cuda & monster hound. Dirty green water out past 400'.

Thanks for the update, we are going to try some live baits off of Haulover in the morning. I'll let you guys know how it goes.

Man there was a ton of action out there today. We had several mahi on but lost them at the boat. Good times today. But wasn’t our day!

Yeti, how deep were you? we drifted beautiful pilchards from 130 to 60 and nada. Maybe It's time to start heading offshore.

High speed trolled this morning out of Hillsboro and got 2 wahoo. Then went out and for mahi and got a few in the box. Threw back maybe a million smaller dinks.

we were all over. Started out in 150-200’ and then went as far out as 1300’ before we circled back in.

I have a day off tomorrow ( thu ) and wanted to possibly head offshore to do some trolling. the forecast is calling for west winds. What's the general opinion on trolling with west winds?? I have always had mixed results and have heard that west winds are bad for fishing. Friday looks great but like always, I cant get out that day.

Depends, what are your chances of catching fish at home?

If you have the chance to get out there, take it. The only thing that would keep me from not going out if I had the opportunity is anything over 15knots from east/north. Anything else, play ball.

I’ve found westerlys near shore not so good but out in the stream on current rips it’s fine. Rougher the better fishing.

Managed a half day trip yesterday in the little weather window and came back with a couple decent mahi for the effort. Birds working the surface put us on fish in 900’ pulling artificials and ballyhoo.
