False Albacore Everywhere!

Report Submitted by Capt. Tyler Fruits of Over Under Sport Fishing, Islamorada, FL


We had the new Over Under 21 Mirage out to the Sea Isle Ridge today for some false albacore action with hopes of running into a wahoo or schoolie BFT. There was a light wind but larger easterly swells with a little chop in the morning , but that didn't stop the new 21 CC Mirage - she is a smaller boat but rides like a 30! 23-25 knot cruise on the way out. We pulled up a little inshore of the south end of the ridge where we had good marks. Well it paid off with some great inshore trolling action! At one point I was marking so much bait, I looked over the side and could see schools all over. The falsies were mixed in and keeping us busy all morning. Our most consistent bite was just inshore of the west wall on the southern part of Ridge, tons of life. I also heard guys slamming them at the Table Top. The seas calmed down for us on the way in and we were running 30 knots the entire way.
