I’ve been fishing a ton lately with good results on a lot of different species. The tuna have been biting well but for some reason they only want to bite when we throw tons of bait in the water with our hook baits. We’re spending a lot of time catching bait and live chumming to get them to bite. Sometimes we’re watching the fish eat right behind the boat eating every bait we throw in the water. It never gets old watching tuna crashing baits. There has also been some very nice tuna up to 115 pounds mixed in. There’s been a lot of fishermen handing the rod off, making landing these fish a team effort. The amberjack season re-opened August 1st and they have been plentiful and very big. We caught my boats biggest last week (80 lbs) on a rig fishing trip. Our rig fishing trips have been very productive lately catching tons of mangrove snapper, red snapper, cobia, grouper, and amberjacks. The highlight fish was a 25 lb scamp grouper that would be the #7 state record if we had filed the paperwork. Another nice bonus we had was a couple nice tripletail that we came across on our way in. The mahi mahi have been sporadic, one day they’re everywhere and the next you won’t see one. The fishing should remain consistent into the fall with the tuna getting bigger in size as we get into late September and October.
