Pretty much the same report with a few additions. The sharks, jacks, bluefish and spanish mackerel have continued to put on a very entertaining show. The pompano have moved on for the most part, but quite a few false albacore and huge school of king mackerel have taken their place. The kings can be very good fun, even for those somewhat “fly challenged” due to there being very little need for distance casting. Deep drifted flies get smacked about as fast as they sink deeper than twenty five feet. You basically just feed out enough of the fast sinking line to get it down to where the kings are and start twitching the fly. Hang on tight though, I think a king hits the fly going about twenty miles an hour, and then hits the afterburners when it feels the hook. About the fastest thing you can hook around here short of a sailfish or wahoo, the kings top out at over fifty MPH. Most of the kings are running less than fifteen lbs, but there are a few “smokers”(not sure if they’re called that because people like big kings to smoke, or because big kings “smoke” your reel) over twenty lbs. Many a drag has been in need of a re-building after a couple encounters with the big kings. The albies have been in good enough supply to chum a few up and we boated several last week in the ten to twelve pound range. A nice treat since they’re usually not even around this time of year. Dolphin have also started to show up, a prelude to my favorite months of the year for big slammer dolphin. We have dolphin in the area for the most part year round, but April and May have the majority of big mahi mahi over fifteen lbs. Dolphin on fly is easily one of my favorite things to do. While there are a few fish that run faster, pull harder, not too many fish jump better or more frequently than dolphin. And nothing does all that and tastes great to boot. Cobia are also passing through the area, though we haven’t had any encounters with them, fish of over fifty lbs have been hitting the dock on a fairly regular basis. About the only thing missing are the blackfin and skipjack tuna, and I’m expecting to start seeing them this coming month also. Looks like spring fishing is about ready to bust loose here in south Florida.
