Went out Friday night (Friday the 13th and a full moon...) with one tail and one grover to show for it. Did manage to catch a bunch of gogs for future trips so not all bad. Headed back out sunday morning and was greeted to a washing machine outside the inlet. Trolled out to 800' working the scattered weeds since the radio said people were picking at peanuts but my fishing partner for the day got seasick so I had to cut the trip short. Didnt break my heart to be honest, was a tad rough for a bay boat.

We went out Saturday out of Haulover. We found a bunch of shorties and a small BFT. Sounded like everyone on the radio was finding school after school of sub 20" fish.

Fished the LSBC tournament on Saturday. Lots of dolphin, but most were on the small size. Of 36 boats, the largest was only 17 pounds. Shows the ocean has fish, but they need to grow a bit. I'll be heading out again on Sunday looking for some bigger stuff.

Since I don't do much trolling what do you guys recommend to start with when blind trolling for dolphin? I was pulling 2 cedar plugs a small chugger. I am limited to pulling 4 lines with my boat. I picked up a couple of head starts for dragging ballyhoo but not sure if it is better to skirt them or pull them with these.

Forgot to post my report from last week. Went out Friday, two dolphin, one 10lbs and one 14lbs. Also saw a big sailfish or small marlin free jumping in the same area. Running around storms on the way in. Going out again tomorrow as long as the weather cooperates.

Got out today. Tons of life but no fish. Chummed up some live bait and headed out to the blue water. Not as many weeds around as last week so set up in the middle of no where. Saw a big whale, dolphins jumping 10ft out of the water, turtles, lots of life but no fish. Had to call it an early day due to storms. The bad fishing reports are as useful as the good ones so keep them all coming guys.

Trolling for dolphin I do best with small jet heads with double hooked bonito strips. They will hit these and nothing else in the spread some days.

Just read the 3 pages here; how depressing. In the late 70's when I used to fish off PE it was a rare day when we didn't get at least a couple decent size dolphin. And now as if things aren't bad enough today's news reported a deal in the works between the Russians and Cubans to begin drilling off Cuba.

Its alright is spot on about the bonita strip and small feather covering it but the dolphin seemed to move out to deeper pastures (1000+) as of yesterday but good thing the muttons and african pompano are biting around wrecks and deep reefs

Was out Sunday. Got very excited with the hit on the planer. Thought it was a nice wahoo but turned out to be a big cuda. Lots of weeds but not many people catching. Ended up with two dolphin on the small size. So do you guys think the afternoon bite is better than the morning?

Noon give or take is usually best for me, but that is usually because it takes that long to find them.

Hit the reefs north of the inlet with a buddy to do some night time tailing, was concerned about the lack of current but as soon as the moon peaked over the horizon it was like somebody flipped a switch. Tails were solid and chunky.
