Big Sharks and Small Swordfish Caught

We are getting into spring mode and are now concentrating on both day trips as well as night trips.  The weather becomes more predictable and we can now start booking more sword trips with confidence in the weather.

As usual, dependent upon the conditions, the day fishing has been either on fire or has been just OK.  When we had good north current and NE winds, we did very well on the sails and the dolphin.  Our best day was 7 out 10 sailfish.  Dolphin have pretty much been a daily catch and most of the dolphin have been of decent size.  I would say that the majority of the dolphin have been between 8 and 25 pounds with very few below 5 pounds.  The kingfish seemed to have slowed down, but that is definitely temporary as April and May can be great months for big spring kings.  The blackfins have also not shown up yet in large numbers but we have been hearing of repots of one or two caught almost daily.  We have already booked a few late afternoon tuna trips so if you want to get in on the action give me a call.  These trips are great as you can go to work and work practically all day and then head out around 4:00pm and fish for blackfins until it gets dark.

This past weekend we went swordfishing both nights and caught fish both nights.  The swordfish bite hasn
