Bimini Offshore Fishing Forecast – April 2013

March has been just as exciting as February, if not more. The wahoo have been in abundance and while hooking up has not been a problem, getting them into the boat has. Many anglers just don’t come prepared properly. Check your lines. Are they frayed? Has your snap swivel seen better days? These two small items can mean getting that fish into the boat or losing it at the boat. March has seen dolphin show in good numbers and this will continue in to April. Blue and white marlin, which migrate north, are starting to show and what better way to get your fishing team practicing for the upcoming Billfish Bonanza. You can find Mr. Bill right off of Bimini, between Cat Cay and South Bimini in 500-to-2500 feet of water. Use your fish finder to find some peaks and you’ll find hook ups more often than not. If you are looking for dorado and yellowfin, you will be able to locate them in waters from 250 feet to about 500 feet. Signs of flying fish let you know that you are in the right area. Until the next tide…Chase your dreams.
