The great fishing we have experienced this fall is still going. This past week we did see some heavy North winds for two days during the middle of the week but by the weekend the winds had passed the action picked back up and continued to be strong with flags for Tuna and Sailfish decorating the boats.
The beach fishing this week was a decent for some small Rooster fish and even a few Sierra. That’s right we have a few Sierra starting to show in the area. They are in close gobbling up all the Sardina we have in the area. For those planning on hitting the beach remember to bring your wire.
We continue to see excellent fishing for Sailfish and Yellow fin Tuna. I spent Saturday 10/20/07 on the water with Clyde Wilber form Fairfax, Va. and we had a day to remember. Clyde hooked and landed twenty Yellow fin on the fly along with one Dorado before lunch. After the Tuna Clyde and I went out to see if we could find some of the great Sail fish fishing that we are experiencing and we did not have the teasers in the water for more than ten minutes and Clyde was pulling on a Sailfish.
The fishing for Tuna and Sailfish continue to be hot as the Dorado fishing slowed down this week. We still have some Dorado in the area and if you find some structure in the water you should be rewarded with a few Mahi.
