The winds have been strong most of the week, which has made getting out tough here in the Florida Keys. The sailfish bite was great at the beginning of the week. The numbers were good, with anywhere from 9 to 15 fish being released per boat . As the week went on it slowed a bit, but there was still plenty of action. The reef got slow due to the wind pushing the cold water out of the back side. This has a negative effect on the shallow water fishing. The colder water shocks the reef life and the fish get what we like to call clam mouth. They just dont want to eat. We do however need this to get things going. This should get the mackerel and grouper biting with a little more frequency.
LOW PROFILE shoved off yesterday, as they finally got a weather window to depart for their winter home at Baker's Bay Marina in the Abacos. Baker's is centered right in the middle of the Abacos in close proximity to Treasure Cay, Green Turtle Cay, and Marsh Harbor. After a quick stop for fuel in Morehead City, they should arrive around Thanksgiving and start fishing right away, as Baker's Bay is hosting their Grand Opening this week and will have a full house. The word on the fishing is HOT, HOT, HOT!!!! An early season winter Wahoo bite is in full swing with reports of 12 fish a day, coming in from right in front of Guana Cay where we'll be docked. We have been updating our Bahamas Fishing Packages all week and now have a great option with Treasure Cay, in addition to Baker's Bay and Grabbers Resort on Guana Cay.
