It's still January and the Spring Mahi/Dolphin action is already "off the wall" !!!!!!!!.
Gaffer size mahi showed up last weeek in 140-250 feet of water east of Ft Pierce Inlet, and the bite has been surprisingly good.
This bodes well for the rest of our spring fishing with the largest fish yet to come by as the weeks progress.
Combine this with the multitude of other species - sailfish, wahoo, blackfin tuna, kingfish, amberjack, etc that we often catch in the spring and you have a 'great day on the Mango' ........just waiting to happen!
We Want to Share the Excitement of Deep Sea Fishing with You!
Are you an experienced angler or just a beginner? Would you like to do everything from baiting the hook to cleaning your fish or do you just want the thrill of reeling it in? The father and son team of Captain Tris Colket and Tris “T-Bone” Colket will plan the Perfect Fishing Adventure for you.
Your voyage begins not far from Vero Beach, Florida at the Fort Pierce City Marina aboard the beautiful 40-Foot Sport Fishing Boat Last Mango. “We enjoy sharing our enthusiasm for the sport and love of the sea,” says T-Bone. “I don’t know how you could go out on the Last Mango and not get excited! On full day trips you can catch Dolphin, Wahoo, Sailfish, Kings, and Cobia depending on the season and our Overnight Gulf Stream Swordfish Trips make for an awesome experience all year round!”
“We also provide Specialty Trips to the Bahamas in the Spring for Tuna and Marlin and in the Winter for Wahoo,” adds Captain Tris. “We can even arrange Extended-Stay Bahamas Trips where we’ll fish in the azure blue waters of Abaco and Grand Bahama Island.”
“Updating and customizing the Last Mango was a labor of love,”says Captain Tris. With twice the fishing area of any boat our size, it easily accommodates up to six people with lots of room to move around. It has a Large Salon which will keep you dry, comfortable, and relaxed in the shade, yet close enough to grab your rod and reel in the big one!
We are ready to put the incredibly windy weather of February behind us and reap the benefits of our 'spring fishing season' from this point onward!.
With the potential for an excellent cobia, kingfish and dolphin bite right around the corner, 1st Mate Joey has his hooks sharp and tackle tuned up. Our Shimano 20's are cleaned and greased with brand new 20lb hi-vis line spooled on each and every one. We will still be pulling a dredge throughout most of the spring to compliment our two mighty squid chain teasers to lure in the occasional 'summer sail' and to present a spread that most game fish will be unable to resist.
The bottom fishing should also be ramping up as the schools of greenies (threadfin, sardines, cigar minnows and blue runners0 show up 'en masse' as the water calms down a bit. These baitfish also give us the alternative of slow trolling 'livies' in all are secret spots for the added thrill of spectacular surface bites from predator fish that often skyrocket several feet in the air as the gobble up their delicious quarry.
