This past weekend, sportfishing yachts, center consoles, and even superyachts travelled to Old Bahama Bay for what is now the largest fishing tournament ever held at the West End resort, the 2021 OBB Wahoo Charity Cup. Not only did 45 boats register in the tournament, but Old Bahama Bay sold out their rooms for the first time in 10 years!

After adhering to Bahamian customs law in which all travelers had to test negative for Covid-19, participants were greeted with Harry’s famous conch salad, fresh banana bread, goombay smashes, and the hospitable smiles of local residents.

Having been postponed since November of 2020 due to inclement weather, the tournament was a welcome weekend of festivities and fishing in a community missed and loved by so many.…

If you’re from Florida, you already know, but if you’re new to the area, a large part of experiencing everything Florida has to offer is by eating what the natives eat- FISH! Saving the best for last, here are the top 10 best fish to eat in Florida!

10. Kingfish

Some may wonder why Kingfish even made this list, but the truth is that South Florida consumes a ridiculous amount of it. Also known as king mackerel, Kingfish is not known as one of the best fish to eat in Florida on its own merit. It tastes quite “gamey” because of its high oil content. However, commercial kingfishing is a booming industry in South Florida for a big reason: smoked fish dip. Just about every restaurant in South Florida carries this delectable appetizer, which usually…

The game offshore this weekend goes to sailfish, snappers, and gaffers. Sailfish are strong just in time for the Dust ‘Em Off Tournament, with releases in the double digits off of Palm Beach. Kite fishing with live goggle-eyes or blue runners in 100-300’ should entice a few sails. While dolphin schoolies are abundant, a few gaffers have been chasing ballyhoo and bonita strips in the 150-600’ range. Trolling with small feathers during lowlight should help you catch a few football-sized blackfin tuna, and the smaller ones can be used to catch wahoo.

Large mutton snapper have been pretty hot lately, with plenty of yellowtail action on…

Sailfish are biting from Stuart to Boca in the 150-300’ range, with a few boats releasing 10+ sails. Try kite fishing with hearty live baits like goggle-eyes or blue runners. Trolling with small feathers during lowlight should help you catch a few football-sized blackfin tuna, and the smaller ones can be used to catch wahoo, which has been hot due to this mild cold front, especially in the Bahamas. If you're thinking of heading to the Bahamas for the first time, read "How to Cross From Florida to the Bahamas By Boat".

Fair numbers of snapper have been prevalent around 100’ off of Jupiter, with a few cobia here and there as well.

The cold front has slowed snook down a bit, but mullet are still running. Live mullet or top water plugs at low-lighted…

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…

The final leg of the West Palm Beach Fishing Club’s Full Moon Wahoo Tournament Series is tomorrow, August 25th, with final weigh-ins at Sailfish Marina on Singer Island.

Centered around the three full moons of summer in South Florida, the tournament began with the strawberry moon in June, followed by the buck moon in July, and culminating with the sturgeon moon in August. Cash payouts are awarded to the top three boats of each full moon fishing day, then a grand prize will be awarded to the boat with the most aggregate weight from all three full moons.

So far, team YELLOWFIN is in first place with 50.4 lbs after bringing in a 24.4 lb wahoo in June and a 26.0 lb wahoo in July,…

Two words sum up the fishing forecast this weekend: Full Moon. Stronger currents around big tides from the full moon turn on the feeding switch for most fish in South Florida, so you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you turn down fishing this weekend.

The wahoo bite has been well-documented to peak before and after a full moon, so local favorite Junkanoo Lures has barely been able to keep up with orders, and says you should see a lot of zigzag high-speed trolling going on offshore during the outgoing tide. Black/Purple and Black/Red color combos are recommended by Juno Bait Shop during lowlight periods, while Blue/White and Pink/White should be good when the sun is higher. Try for wahoo at 120-300’ in the morning and head out a little deeper…

This past weekend at Rybovich Superyacht Marina, over 85 boats from all over Palm Beach County showed up to support the much-needed research and awareness of prostate cancer by fishing in the Anglers For The Cure KDW Tournament.

The day of fishing proved sparse for most competitors, with kingfish being the only species that seemed to truly be showing up. Although most teams tried zig-zagging for wahoo at first light, the only wahoo caught was reeled in around 2 pm. At 22.9 pounds, it weighed in and won 1st place wahoo (and only wahoo on the board) in the Mark Gerretson Memorial Fishing Tournament in Delray Beach, as well as number one and only in the Anglers For The Cure…
