The Bottom Line

The fishing on the e Cape has blown wide open!
Limits of Yellowfin for all anglers! The billfish have returned. Some nice Dorado to 52#’s. A couple of Wahoo are being taken daily. Good Roosterfishing with larger fish this week.

Yellowfin- under pods of Porpise spread through the bay and outside. Varying sized fish depending on the school. 5-50#’s. Hoochies and cedar plugs are taking the fish. Limits ALL anglers.

Billfish- striped marlin mixed with Sails. Anglers targeting the billfish are scoring at least one most several. Very spread. La Ribera to Frailles on the outer bank working best. Light fishing pressure as most anglers after the Yellowfin. Trolled Ballyhoo and live Caballito working.

Dorado/Wahoo- the Dorado have returned!!
Not in large numbers but big fish. Billie Maddox took a 52# er yesterday. Three or four Wahoo are coming in daily.

Roosters and inshore- bigger Gallo’s this week. Lots of big Pargo taken as well.
