    Hey Capt Scott, how far out do you go for those beauties? Are the Spinners gone?

    MTD,
    Those were a ripping total of about a 1/2 mile from the inlet when I found them. 30 ft of water. They had no where to run but out, out, and out.
    Don't know about the spinners, they were thinning out rapidly as of last I tried for them...think it was last Tuesday. I have to say, this spinner shark season was unimpressive....poor weather, and grumpy, uncooperative sharks. Good thing the albies are showing up to take some frustration out on. The dolphin, kings and big blackfins should be along shortly.

    There are bunches of these in the area now as well, both on the beach in big schools and hanging around offshore wrecks....

    And the bunches of smallish dolphin that herald the arrival of the big guys has begun...have been using five weights on fish like this...a total riot

    I expect the bigger dolphin to show up very soon...

    Great report Scott. Sinking lines and lots of chumming. If any one wants to catch allot of fish on the fly book a trip with this captain.

    Thanks for the kind words Renegade....
    The dolphin can actually be sighted fished without chum for the most part. A hookless teaser may be used to get them close and fire them up(assuming you can find someone who'll fish with no hook on the end of their line)...but basically, it's like bonefishing in a 1000' of water....

    Booking Captain Scott...

    Hi All,

    Dont book "A" trip, book a few days in row, your learning curve will really steepen...!

    Capt Scott: Thanks for the Jack picture, it won't really help have time flying by ... five weeks...!

    Cheers,

    Sixgunner
