Well much like this past Sunday’s shop report, fishing remains spotty. There certainly are fish around and they are being caught, but you have to be in the right place at the right time in order to find them. I have been fishing a variety of tides and locations both on the island and around the nearby north shore but nothing has been very predictable or consistent just yet.
One motivating factor that is keeping me out there night after night is the fact that there are some LARGE fish mixed in with these spotty schools. In fact I landed a 30 pounder on a eel this past monday night (you’ll have to wait for next week to see the footage…..). I fished the same area the next night and there only were schoolies. Your best bet right now is to get out and cover as much beach as possible and try changing things up. Don’t get too stuck fishing the same spot or tide stage. If you really want your best shot at catching fish, wait until after the sun goes down…..
