August Fishing Blog

August Fishing should bring in the Mahi Schools as they migrate through the area. Trolling the weedlines from 5-15 miles offshore should produce some nice mahi action. We will troll black bart lures and also bonito strips behind sea witches or islander lures/chuggers until we get the hit, then sprinkle small pieces of bonito chunks/chum in the water to try to get the school boatside to pitch lighter spinning tackle to them. It can be a blast with steady action and mayhem at the same time.

If it’s Hard Fighting fish you’re after the amberjacks should start to show up on the wrecks again around this time of year. Drop a large blue runner down on heavy gear and wait although if they’re there it shouldn’t take too long to get slammed.

The other awesome fishery is the king mackerel around the early and late parts of the day, slow trolling live baits with wire rigs will produce as well as drone spoons behind a planer.

For the sunrise and sunset wahoo action, pick the week before and after the full moon phase and high speed troll large baits on 50-80 class setups for those zebras, the thrill of landing that wahoo is second to none.
