On 4/5 we headed out of the Jupiter Inlet with Al and his family. The vibes were good and with that East wind I had a feeling the bite was going to be something special. After drifting live bait for 30 minutes bam, line ripping off the reel! A massive square head bull gives AL a 30 minute bicep workout. An hour goes by with no action then bam double, the girls reel in two nice gaffers. As we think how could this day get any better, the long goes off with a massive sailfish. Al lands his first sail, after a 45 minute battle. Photo, back in the water, this big girl swims off fine.

Fishing in general has been great for Dolphin everyday! There have been a few sailfish cruising the ledge and hook ups have been a common occurrence. There have also been plenty of Kings around, they have been showing us a good time on spinning gear.

On blow out days we have been fishing in the Loxahatchee and Intracoastal. We have been catching a ton of Jacks and Ladyfish. Inshore snapper fishing has been hot! Good fishing is here. Visit for booking information. See you on the water.
