Fish Type by Seasons
August through December is peak season, but an occasional blue or black Marlin may be found any month that the water temperature is high. This year, the Marlin bite was incredible from February through March, with some weighing in at over 600 pounds.
Exceptional fishing from December through April. Often slows from May into early June, then picks up again and begins to peak in August or September.
Yellow Fin Tuna:
Best fishing for the bigger ones corresponds with the marlin and sailfish season, but schools of these fish can almost always be found around Cano Island and further out.
Best runs are traditionally from late May through October.
Not abundant, but an occasional Wahoo may be caught. The best times are May though October.
The region has big Roosters and they can be caught virtually any month of the year, some weighing nearly 100 pounds. Average sizes range from 6 to 30 pounds.
Almost all year round, but best from May through August and January though March.
Horse-eye Jacks, Jack Crevalle, Amber Jack, Spanish mackerel, Dog tooth snapper, Motton snapper, all found year round.
