Well, the fishing season is officially started. The LAZYBONES has been fishing
everyday and a handful of charterboats have started sailing as well, although not so much
during the week yet. But that will come.
The bass fishing is great, with the boats that have gone after them all catching limits, both
by trolling and diamond jigging. And there are some bluefish in the mix as well. The bass
are mostly all legal size with fish up to fifteen pounds or so.
The fluke are here as well, although not as good as the bass. Over the weekend the fishing
continued to improve over the early part of the week and should be in top form by next
weekend. For now there is a mix of shorts and legal fish, including some real doormats.
The best fishing is on the south side but when weather conditions don’t allow it, there are
some fish in the Rips as well. Bones had fish up to nine pounds on both Saturday and
There was a bit of a “ooops” on Thursday night when a scallopper ran up on the beach
between the lighthouse and North Bar. I guess someone fell asleep or something. A
dragger took advantage of the high tide on Saturday night to haul it off.
Of course the fishing in Central America will still be hot through the spring and some of
the lodges that were booked up through the winter months are starting to have some
availability. Give it a thought and check it out at www.tropicalfishing.com
