Bimini Offshore Fishing Forecast – February 2012

2012 is off to a great start here in Bimini. A little bit of everything was caught from a scale bending 101.4 pound wahoo, a sailfish caught by a newlywed couple, some dolphin to a nice yellowfin tuna. All were caught right out front between Bimini and Cat Cay. In February we should see a few blue marlin showing up in the current edges from 600 to 1200 feet of water. Successful anglers targeting blues will be pulling mainly artificial. The blue marlin bite was pretty strong last year and should be the same this year. The wahoo bite will be in full swing for anglers wanting to do some high speed trolling. Zig zagging between 120 to 450 feet of water from Bimini to Ocean Cay will be the most productive grounds for wahoo. If you’re just looking for table fare, ballyhoo on mono, as well as a few #9 wire rigs, will produce a few wahoo, as well as a few dolphin. February is a great month to be in Bimini with a wide range of target species in good numbers. As always, deep dropping for yelloweye and queen snapper is an awesome way to guarantee a great meal for the entire crew.
