2005-02-03 - Bahamas Fishing Report - January 2005
February 1, 2005: The OVER UNDER is finally back at. After almost 3 months without wetting a line, we are now into our Bahamas season in full gear. The offshore fishing so far has been a bit sporadic, but there are some VERY nice fish being caught. At the top of the list is this #116 Wahoo caught off Columbus Point at Cat Island the week of January 17th. Last week the first Blue Marlin of the season was released off of Columbus Point as well. The OVER UNDER has been running great, with two recently overhauled engines, and raising fish as usual. We've been bagging nice Wahoo, Dolphin and some smaller yellowfin tuna on most trips. With the new moon approaching, we expect the Wahoo bite to peak in early February and are looking for more 100# class fish to come to the dock. On the flats the bonefishing has been exceptional. We've had plenty of nice days over the last couple weeks and the bonefish have been around in good numbers. The top catch of the month was guest who managed to release 10 bonefish on fly in one day. Plenty of fish are around and it's just a matter of having the weather continue to cooperate. As you'll see below the weather has been nice enough to allow us to get some free diving in. Plenty of nice sized lobster available diving the heads and reef on the South and South-West sides of the Island.
