Offshore FIshing This Month 7/29

The offshore fishing this month has been spectacular.The mahi fishing is on fire with all size fish being caught from 5 lbs to 50lbs. But they have been a little picky as far how they have been biting.It use to be rig some ballyhoo and troll and that still is having some Luck. But I have been trying to find a handful of birds( to many birds can mean trash fish) and pitching baits underneath them to catch the nicer fish.On the reef side of things the yellowTail snapper bite has been great with a mix of mangrove snappers as well. The water this time of year is very clear so you will have to scale everything down. I mean 12 lb fluorocarbon and #4 live bait hooks, and don't forget to bring lots of chum and oats. The more chum in the water the bigger fish will come up.And always have a small landing net around for those 3 to 5 lb fish.until next time.   Go get em!!
