Trophy Size Tuna & Wahoo In The Gulf Stream

May 24th, 2006 by Gillwetter Press

It’s time for Spanish Mackerel and I’m here to tell you there are plenty out there. The piers are getting their share of Spanish. The size is still a little small. The biggest I have heard of was around one and a half pounds. Five to ten miles out there are plenty of mid-size King Mackerel around the fifteen-pound range. On the bottom, Black Bass and Snapper are really starting to bite. If you run to the Gulf Stream, well, that’s another story. Plenty of Tuna and Wahoo and some are trophy size. The surf has been producing some big Blue Fish up to the six and seven pound range with a lot of little ones being caught as well. There are still a few Whiting around being caught mainly on sand fleas. Black Drum are still feeding on sand fleas and shrimp. Both piers on the Island are catching some Black Drum and Whiting. The river seems to be full of small Croaker. If you can find an area were the Croakers are not plentiful, then there are probably some nice Puppy Drum to be caught. Flounder are around and I have heard of some four and five pound catches but no reports of really good catches. There is plenty of bait in the water but they seem to be a little behind last years’ numbers. That’s going to improve. Keep trying new spots and use fresh bait. Keep fishin and releasin!
