Here are some photos from last week’s charters during Thanksgiving holiday. We have been enjoying good fishing for sailfish, king mackerel, barracuda, bonito, and cero mackerel about 1 mile offshore. When the ocean is flat there have been reports of dolphin about 6 miles out. The wahoo fishing should be good this week during the full moon.
Now that the seas have subsided we are excited about the potential fishing opportunities along our coast and in the Gulfstream. There should be plenty of floating debris offshore to attract schools of mahi mahi, but boaters should take caution when venturing through post-hurricane waters. Closer to shore, Mutton snapper and red grouper will be found in higher concentrations than normal around reefs from depths of 20-300ft. Live or dead Sardines will be the best bait for exploring post Hurricane Irma waters. Inshore, we can expect the beginning of the mullet run with plenty of jacks, snook, tarpon, and lady fish in tow. If you would like to book a trip with me I have 3 boats available to take you out. This is the perfect time to relieve the stress from Hurticane Irma with a little fishing. Call or email me, thanks!

July has been great fishing so far! Here are the pics….
January forecast: best bet offshore is Wahoo, sailfish, kingfish, and mahi mahi. Best bet inshore is jacks and Spanish mackerel. Tarpon and snook will be good at night during Southerly winds.
The cool winds of Fall are upon us and the fishing has really started to heat up for sailfish and Wahoo offshore. Inshore, pompano, permit, and even bonefish have been biting when the winds blow from the north. When the winds have been Northeast there have been a few mahi mahi biting near the reef only a mile offshore. We have been targeting sailfish with live bait and trolling for the Wahoo and the mahi with lures. Inshore along the intracoastal,we have been using cut shrimp to catch the pompano, permit, and bonefish. The snook and tarpon have been tougher to find with water temps cooling down, but after a heavy rain the snook bite should continue to be good even during cooler weather. I expect the same pattern to occur over the next couple weeks. Here are some photos from some of our November 2017 Boca Raton Fishing Charters:
Fishing has been excellent the last couple days! The ocean has been very calm and my customers have had a blast catching sailfish, mahi mahi, tuna, and bonito for our offshore and near shore charters. Yesterday we had 8 sailfish bites and landed a couple for some pictures. We caught 3 nice tuna with trolling and live baits yesterday afternoon. Today we went 10 miles offshore and found a school of mahi mahi under a log and we were able to land 5 using live baits. Here are the photos:
