I spoke with a few guys who went to the other side yesterday. Sounds like everyone found good numbers of dolphin but no birds and sickle-fins. Almost every boat found dolphin in the 30 pound range, and I heard of two close to 50. Unfortunately the wind has started to blow again today so it might be a week until the next trip. Dolphin action should continue to be pretty decent here this month and next. It sounds like bottom fishing was hit or miss the last couple of days. Some nice grouper were caught Sunday but not in any great quantity. The mangrove snapper fishing has been fair and scamp grouper have been pretty thick in 27 fathoms.
The river is still the deal. There are more and more redfish showing up every day (Jimmy Fritas even caught one yesterday) and some heavy duty snook in the shallows. I have seen a few snook in the last week that i honestly thought were sharks until they got closer to the boat.
Get back to work or get to fishing!
Have a good one!
