Nearshore Trolling: Good catches of kings on live baits and plugs trolling over natural bottom, coral and rocks. Some chicken dolphin action, a few blackfin tuna and still an occasional cobia!
Offshore Trolling: Wahoo and dolphin action is good, tuna have been quite good and the daytime swordfishing has been real good with some night time action.
Bottom Fishing: Mingo snapper, red grouper and a steady catch of black snapper dominate most days. Red snapper are of course open and biting on the weekends, fish wrecks, hard bottom and coral with live cigar minnows for the best action!
