The bite was scarce last weekend, but it seems to have been picking up this week due to the full moon. A few wahoo are starting to show up from the full moon and mild cold front, especially closer to the Bahamas. Around here, 150-400’ is where wahoo have hooked up along with blackfin tuna. Troll with small feathers during lowlight for tuna, and use the small ones to catch wahoo. Another option is to pick up a local favorite Junkanoo Lure and high speed troll in a zig-zag pattern. Sailfish are also coming out of the woodwork, and kite fishing with hearty live baits like goggle-eyes or blue runners is your best bet.

Kingfish and large mutton snapper have been eating sardines near 120 – 200’, and yellowtail snapper has been showing up in strong

Halloween in Hobe Sound will require you running for your life (slightly exaggerated). Zombies have been spotted! Are you up to this years annual Halloween “You Can Run but Not Hide” Race at the Pine School’s campus?  This a great family friendly event, so bring the young and the young at heart.

Beware on October 19th, 2018, as the zombies will be running amongst us.  A zombie is a corpse that has been turned into a creature having a crusade but not a rational thought and very hungry. It's best to come out dressed in a Halloween costume or zombie outfit. To endure the race, you must traverse a 5K course with off-road and street terrain. The run is easy. It's avoiding the zombies that can get a bit thorny, specifically they're after your flags.

Offshore, football-sized blackfin tuna have been pretty easy to get ahold of in about 200-400’ of water. You can use small daisy chains or troll with feathers, but quite a few have been caught trolling with small-skirted bonita strips as well. We had a lot of success with neon green and white skirts this week, but colors are a game that changes by the minute, so try a few different ones and switch the rest out as you go if your target fish is tending to a particular color. Dolphin have been in the same areas as blackfin, and wahoo have been non-existent. On the first cold front that rolls through, we’ll have our local favorite Junkanoo Lures ready. Regardless of our lack of cold

Years ago, only larger sailboats, trawlers, and yachts crossed from Florida to the Bahamas, but with modern technology and engineering, center consoles as small as 25-30 feet have been making the trip with ease.

Between Florida and the Bahamas lies the reason behind Florida’s world-class fishing- the Gulf Stream. This warm and powerful current rushes from south to north, and while crossing the open ocean can be daunting to a newcomer, it’s entirely possible with the right amount of preparation and research. Here are a few considerations when attempting to make a safe crossing.

Proper Equipment

Regardless of the current weather, the boat should be large enough and built well enough to safely travel over open ocean when the wind and seas aren’t

With the mullet run being the highlight of the past couple of weeks, most fishing has been geared toward snook, large tarpon, and amberjack chasing schools through inlets, inshore, on the beach, and at the Juno Pier. Your trustiest bait is live mullet itself, which can be found during low light periods of the day away from boat traffic. If you’re looking for a little more fun in exchange for less reliability, using top water plugs creates some exciting action as snook will strike these much harder, sometimes becoming airborne exploding on the surface.

Reef anglers should be catching some kingfish and snapper this time of year, but this week has
