Week 4 Report - February 2012
Offshore, Dorado and wahoo were in 100- 500 feet. Lures, skirted and naked ballyhoo, strip baits produced good results on the troll. On the reefs and wrecks, grouper, mutton and yellowtail snapper, bonita, some wahoo and peanut dorado, cobia and kingfish were in 60-120.
Nearshore, along the beaches, piers and inlet bluefish, jacks, pompano, snappers, mackerel and some in close cobia provided mixed bags.
Inshore in the ICW, the darkside produced snook around the docks and bridges. Tarpon and some pompano were inside.
To the south, Captain Jim Hendricks put his anglers on some sailfish and dorado. He took them in shallow looking for cobia and in about 30 feet, spotted a swordfish. On 30 pound spinning rod the 250 pound gladiator took a live pilchard. After some good angling and boat handling, 30 minutes later, they managed to stick the sword with a harpoon. Another hour and the double marker was boated rewarding all with swordfish steaks and a great accomplishment and a story to be passed along. Congratulations to the Captain and Anglers!
