Winter has yet to arrive in south Florida. The sailfish and cobia don't know what to do. One day they come in close, the next day they disappear. Same is true for the spinner sharks, dolphin, etc. It's a hit-and-miss kind of thing.
Spent two days there this week. Day one with Capt. Joe Dobbins on a beautiful Bahamas 31 with twin 300 Yamahas. Sweeeeet boat! Very fishable. Lots of room. Joe's report was NO sails, and the kings and dolphin were hard to come by...a few snakes and a few chickens, but no 'show' fish. So we decided to target spinners and cobia. The weatherman was waaaaay off...supposed to be 10kt wind or less, and 2 ft seas or less. NOT !!! 20 kt all day, and a strong chop. We managed 4 spinner hookup's and got one close to the boat. The others broke off on the run, or just behind the boat. Hard day, but good day.
Day 2 with Capt. Ron Doerr. Ron is the spinner guru in the area. We fished hard all day long for 2 hookups and one to the boat. Day 2 was flat calm in the morning and the wind kicked up in the afternoon.
This crazy weather pattern needs to resolve and let a little winter come to south FL and maybe the fishing will get back to normal.
Measure the fish, not with a ruler, but rather by the size of the smile on the angler's face.
