Last week we released several sailfish and had no shortage of blackfin tuna! Now through June are the best months to target the blackfin. They tend to stay deeper during daytime unless they are on the move following an easy school of bait on the surface! We can drop jigs or live bait down into reefs and wrecks and catch blackfin tuna as well. Once they find a spot they usually stick around.
The cobia we have caught have in 90-180 feet of water inside and a few outside of drop offs. Cobia can be caught on live bait and really anything moving that captures their attention. Once hooked up - be ready to hang on! Cobia put on quite a fight and it is well worth it too because they make for an excellent meal.
Dolphin (mahi) are also running - we have run into a few schools while drifting or looking for birds diving into bait. Bait fish tend to school closer to the top as a result of the strong currents of the Gulf Stream pushing them to the surface.
We fished the Boynton Beach Firefighters Fishing Tournament over the weekend in tough conditions and placed 1st for kingfish and 2nd for Lady Angler. With that being said the kingfish bite is still on and there are plenty of opportunities to bring in a hand full of fish!
This is a great time of year to target a huge variety of fish nearshore and offshore in the Palm Beach area.
I look forward to planning a day on the water with you soon.

I fish the Jimmy Johnson Sailfish Tournament with Team Hardway and got 8th place overall and top meat fish with a 45.9 lb wahoo. At home there has been good numbers of sails and dolphin. Cobia starting to show up and a few kings biting also.
Give me a call or send a message online to get your offshore fishing day planned soon!
