The offshore fishing has been very good to say the least for the past couple of months. Weather has been on our side for most of the last two months and as we are moving into April it has gotten a little tougher but we definitely welcome this time of the year. The amount of Yellow fin Tuna caught out of Venice during the month of March is the most I have ever seen brought in at a consistent level by just about everyone out fishing. To put it another way...even those who aren't the best fisherman or weren't exactly sure what they were doing, looked like professionals at the end of the day, or late night for that matter. The only way to separate the bunch was the time of arrival back to the dock. Very simple to go out and catch Tuna right now. The avg. size was about 40-60lbs. with some days offering the 80-100lbers. We are now moving into a different time of the year as we transition from Winter to Spring. This past March looked a lot like April did last year, not quite as many fish, but the avg. size was very close. The wahoo really showed up as well towards mid-late March and of course they are the studs that we are use to getting in late-winter. Amberjack have been thicker than ever but with the way the Tuna have been biting most of our customers passed on the jacks. April should be a very good month to get out and bluewater fish. I am guessing that the dolphin may show early this year because of the warmer temps. we have had most of March but we will have to wait and see on that. We've got plenty of open days to fish. Our new Freeman has arrived, we took delivery on March 17th and I have been getting it ready to fish. All I can say is that it is a fishing machine and will be a lot of fun to fish on. So right now we've got three boats and three captains to choose from and ready to fish.
