Seems like the winter fishing is off to a nice, early start. Everything from Sailfish to Ladyfish. Bluefish, Spanish and King Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, Pompano and even a few Spinner Sharks. Dolphin are still around, as well as the small Blackfin Tuna, Skipjack Tuna and False albacore. Full dance card, I’d say.
I haven’t been fishing much between a huge amount of work to done around the house, a typical lack of clients for this time of year,( especially maddening considering the damn good fishing) and kinda crummy weather. Fun fishing for myself isn’t really enjoyed when I know all the things that need doing back at the house. But I did get a couple of “restocking the freezer” trips in, Dolphin and Tripletail filet’s will be nice for the next couple of months. I met a bull Dolphin that must have been raised by Tuna, judging from the way he fought. After a smoking run and a couple beautiful jumps, he spent the next forty minutes on his side, fifty feet straight down. Smart old bull, he got broadside and fought for every inch. Very tough fight.  An unused to, but well enjoyed, butt kicking.
Hope you’re all looking forward to the winter season as much as I am.
