Mahi and Tuna

With the wind puffing out of the southeast there are mahi starting to show up on the reefs. I have reports of the larger blackfin tuna starting to show up in the 15-20lb range. May is almost here where we see the tuna reaching 35+ lbs. Fishing is heating up on the reef with very large king mackeral mixed in with wahoo, dolphin, and tunas. There is a pretty consistent sailfish bite in 130-185 ft of water just outside the south current. Live bait out of the kite has been the most effective method for targeting the sailfish. The troll has been tough to get these fish to bite lately. On the bottom the grouper bite is strong and out in the deep the Golden Tilefish bite has been impressive with fish over 20# being caught consistently on the rock piles. Stay tuned for our next report.
