It looks like we will finally have a weekend where some of the fleet will be able to get out and do some fishing.  Friday doesn’t look great, but does look fishable, Saturday and Sunday look doable, and Monday looks nice.  Several boats are still in the water and available to get out there and get another trip in before the offshore fish leave the building.  There are still some fish around as well.

There are not many boats fishing these days but the Marli with Captain Mark Hoos and mate Mark Stephens took a trip today and had some luck.  They didn’t crush the tuna like they did last week, but they did find a nice yellowfin and 45 mahi to make for a nice day.

The forecast this weekend is one of those that could go either way.  10-20 is tricky because if it’s on the 10 side it’s nice, but if it’s toward the 20 side it  could be sporty.  Check out the buoy reports through the below link and get an updated look at sea conditions before you make the call.

Or just book a 50 footer and you’re fishing either way.
