The Sailfish are coming! The Bandolera fished yesterday, they are here from Puerto Rico to fish the tournaments, and had some great action. They made the run up to the 43600 loran line which is up off Melbourne. They caught 1 sailfish for 5 bites and a wahoo and 9 dolphin. They are fishing again today and now that they have the bugs from the first trip out of the way I hope to hear a good report from them tonight! Devin Silas fished closer to our inlet yesterday on an express boat that is also here from out of town. He did say anything to me about sailfish, but he did tell me they caught 11 "gaffer" dolphin.
Ballyhoo are the bait of choice this time of year, and right now is the time to get the best quality small ballyhoo. If you have an empty freezer and are planning some winter time trolling you should stock up on quality bait now while it’s available.
Have a Great Day!
