  • L & H Sportfishing – January 2022 Fishing Report

    January is when we start seeing the bigger fish in our area. Sailfish, Mahi-Mahi (dolphin) and kingfish have been showing up in better and better numbers for the boats kite fishing in 100-200ft. There are some nice mutton snappers being caught with both live and dead bait on the reefs. Along the beaches Spanish mackerel, bluefish and jacks are migrating down and these fish can be caught using live bait and small artificial lures. Finally this can be a great time of year for swordfish. It can be tricky with the weather, but if your lucky enough to find a nice day chances are good for getting a couple bites. We usually fish the swordfish with squid or Bonita bellies in 1500-1800 ft of water.
