2008-02-03 - 114 Pound Wahoo, First Bahamas Fishing Report, Plus Islamorada Fishing Updates

114 Pound Wahoo on First Day! Read our First Bahamas Fishing Report, also Islamorada and Morehead City

The season is officially over for us in Morehead City, LOW PROFILE pulled out of North Carolina this week and made the 500 mile jump to Marsh Harbor, then another 200 down to it's winter home at San Salvador. Capts. Joe and Thomas went out for a few hours on Friday morning, to see what was going on up on the North side of the Island and were quickly into some nice Wahoo action. The first two Wahoo boated were about 50 pounds, but then a double header had them hooked into a much bigger fish. Thomas sunk the gaff, as a big white tip was moving in for the kill, snatching it away from the aggressive shark. This fished weighed in at 114 pounds, making it one of the largest we've boated over there in the last couple years. All the fish were taken on large purple and black Yozuri Bonita Plugs, trolled off of Penn 80 pound class outfits at about 9 knots. We typically run the Yozuri Plugs behind a four pound trolling weight. Yesterday, we had our first true charter, going out for a few hours in the afternoon, they went 3-6, loosing a couple to sharks. Again, these fish were in the 50-60 pound range. Also, when the fishing slows down, free-diving for lobster has been great too.

Islamorada Fishing Report

The colder weather and water temperatures have the larger grouper starting to respond. Below you'll see a picture of black grouper that went close to 40 pounds, which is one of the larger ones that's come to the dock lately. Both Pretty Work and That's Right are fishing in Islamorada right now.
