North Florida Fishing Report04/11/2015

**Wide Open Charters and Guide Service

St Augustine sunshine and some cooperative seas have provided ideal conditions for offshore anglers in April.
The blue water trolling has been productive for wahoo, blackfin tuna and mahi from 130′ to beyond the ledge.
Recent catches include two Blue Marlin on one trip aboard the ‘Game Changer’ with Capt. Danny. Other multiple billfish
encounters were also reported, including two blue marlin and one white aboard the ‘Gemlux’ . Capt. Mark on the ‘Jodie Lynn II’
also scored a blue marlin on a charter early in the month. These fish were all released.
Otherwise the wahoo bite has faded with most fish now on the smaller side, though the mahi size and numbers are improving.

Closer in the cobia calvary has been out galloping the coast for migrating manta rays and the cobias following
them. Unfortunately the results have been less than stellar. The awesome spectacle of large manta rays and lots of enormous leatherback turtles
is producing almost no cobia. Most anglers encountered multiple rays and turtles
in recent days with no opportunity to melt ice in the fish cooler.

Inshore the redfish bite has been outstanding in the creeks. Flounder jacks and bluefish are
shadowing the recent finger mullet arrivals. Pompano are showing in the surf with good size whiting
and some reds.

Bass are bedding and gobblers are strutting-
spring is here!
