3/21/06 - General Offshore- There have been a lot of reports of larger wahoo being caught nears the rigs. The water temperature is in the upper 60′s around Southern and about 63 degrees a few miles inside. Some boats report seeing lots of different species including blackfin tuna, wahoo, dorado, kingfish, amberjack and even a large hammerhead cruising around. With so many large wahoo being caught, we must remember that we need to be responsible and think about the future wahoo populations. Just remember to only keep what you are going to eat.
3/17/06 – Yellowfin- Numerous wahoo caught before 10:30am. Total poundage of 481 lbs. Tommy said that the blue water was lurking a mile or two offshore southern.
3/17/06 – Iced Down – Capt. Nate got into the wahoo action with 16 caught and a total of 450 lbs. He has also come across some kingfish and amberjack.
General Bay- Overall consensus from the bay guides was slow fishing over the last full moon. But knowing these guides expectations, they are not happy unless everyone limits on every trip. They have been catching reds, drum, and some trout. For those fishing for sheepshead, they have been well rewarded. There have been some reports of trout over 25″ form a couple of guides. Bay fishing will be getting better and better as the water temperatures increase.
3/7/06- Hey everyone!!!! Just waking up from hibernation with some nice reports.
General Offshore– When the boats have been able to get out there, they have been getting into a variety of fish. The rocks have been thick with kingfish all winter. Amberjacks have been very numerous recently and consistent reports on wahoo.
Yellowfin - Made it out Saturday and reported catching amberjack, a few wahoo, kingfish and a couple of blackfin tuna.
Iced Down - Capt. Nate Forbes just brought this boat to town and “broke the ice” on the new boat with and excellent trip. He brought back a very good catch of amberjack, grouper, wahoo and tuna. Check out some of his catch below.
Larry Kelley, Frank Eicholz, and Jimy Simmons took out a group for a half day of bayfishing and returned with a nice catch of redfish with some drum and sheephead thrown in for fun. Randy Seidel reports that he has been catching linits of reds on his trips around Port A, but has had to travel down to the King Ranch shoreline to find some good 20″-28″ trout.
Keep checking the Fishing Report, it will continue to be updated frequently now that the weather is turning favorable. Now I gotta go find the fish.
