With all the “crowding” there is still plenty of bait in the bay. Now...

 Fishing is Great in Between the Long Liners!

Yes folks, we have fish everywhere, but things have changed since last week. We’ve seen the Skippies aka Skip Jack Tuna thin out, which in itself is not too bad. We’ve also seen the water temperatures drop to just under 86 degrees, which is pretty close to “perfect”. Blue water is not an issue...

Sailfish Spread Out, Yellowfin Tuna Bite Late in Day
