2017 Mahi Reports

I thought I'd make a thread so everyone can share info on what they saw/heard on mahi reports for 2017.

I was out fishing the wrecks in Miami yesterday and tons of weed patches were blown in shallow. Every time a big patch would come through, we'd be surrounded by peanuts. Most were short, but it made me wish I pushed out deep in search of mahi instead of messing around with the jacks.

Also saw quite a few reports on instagram of guys doing well off Miami/Keys.

Post up what you guys are seeing out there, its :fishing time.

    Was out as well, at the 58 line was in the weed machine with patches and lost a keeper schooler! Pushed to 55 with clearing found nada, came back west and got nailed at 57 with a solo 25 bull on roids! After solo battle 15 min stuck him with the new 4" gaff and he complied with no issue, beat and ready for the box, took him a couple minutes to protest but was good on the grille today!

    We've had a great run for the past week at Port Canaveral and ponce inlet. Lots of fish reported over 50lbs. Personally got a 35lb bull and 20lb cow and 4 smaller fish. Hope to get out again next week. Keep the south reports coming, helps us gauge the fish up here. Tight lines.

    Dolphin run is on...Whatsapp, instagram, Facebook, etc all of my friends/folks I've subscribed to who fish a lot are reporting lots of weeds and fish this entire week....Most of the big boys are caught deep, 800'+. Several buddies of mine off Port Canaveral filled up their fish boxes with peanuts and lots of big boys.

    I haven't seen social media light up with so many dolphin reports in 2 years!

    GET OUT THERE PEOPLE!

    buddy down in the keys said every boat in the upper keys had a pile of schoolies and a few bigger ones. he caught a couple in the 10lb range in about 250' out of Islamorada. so they are here up and down the coast if you can get out this weekend should be great. again the wind is an issue supposed to be 20-25knts this weekend so count me out.

    What happened with the thread is a repeat of 2016 season.

    Been bottom fishing, but I'm switching gears next trip. Seems like those who are out there chasing them are getting some fish.
