I don't know if there's many reports now as the weather has been unfavorable lately. I plan to go south of MV on Saturday. Possibly to the Dump but further to the lanes if conditions are favorable. There's a nice eddy coming north of Atlantis into the lanes.

re: offshore (south of MVY)

Hi there. I've found precious few dolphin south
of ACK/MVY. There've been onesy/twosy groups..
high flyers and debris have been mostly void of 'em.

There've been a ton of skippys and bluefin by Gordon's
Gully. My thermometer went out, so I can't tell you
the temps/breaks..... but you should find life behind
any trawler out there.

PS WX reports indicate Sunday would be the day to go
out there....

Thanks for the info, your right Sunday is now the day, especially adding in that I just got tickets to buffet tonight. I'll let you know how we did soon after.

What a day!

The weather could not have been better! Left the docks around 4:30 and steamed out to the Star and started the troll, had a knock down as soon as it hit the water. Small skippy but a good start. Chunked for a while but didn't like the looks of the water so went further south. There were a half dozen draggers working the area and plenty of boats. Trolled the spread for about a half hour and then had 5 hooked up all at once. That continued until about 2. Total count - 1 Skippy, 20-25 SBFT in the 20-40lb range, not the biggest fish, but a blast all the same. Follow the draggers, that is the key.

er: fishing the draggers

I found the draggers, and a dozen chuckleheads.... it wasn't
fun. I scooted outta there some quick.

Following the draggers is like Edgarville Harbor (or State
Beach, or Lacky's, etc) fishing for bones/albies... bunch of
meatheads alright. <hehehe> Follow the draggers if you
want to either get ticked of royally, or if you want a lesson
in abject American-Angler-Courtesy.

I went between NE corner of the dump and the Star... all by
myself... tons of baby bluefin... TONS of baby dolphin.

Sunday was one of the most beautiful days offshore I
can remember.

S of MV on Sun

We fished the fingers on Sunday. It was almost too calm. Trolled over the SW ledge, the claw and set up a slick on the Fingers. Hooked up a couple blue sharks when a small mako appeared beside the boat just having a look around. It wouldn't take anything we threw when all of a sudden another blue hooked up and the mako bolted at it and broke the mainline after getting tangled. Makos never cease to amaze me.

We spotted SBFTs 100 yrds off the bow. They didn't seem to care about the sharks in the slick. But, we lost them less than 10 mins later. I heard one giant spotted in the middle of the dump but no hookup.
