We’ve officially turned the corner into the fall season here in the US Virgin islands and the Wahoo run is in full swing. A strong, early showing of hoo’s to the south of St. Thomas was the focal point of our offshore charters in October. We expect a larger class of fish to show as we move deeper into the winter season, however Wahoo in the 20-35lb class were more than cooperative and provided our guests with plenty of grilling steaks to take home. High-speed trolling has produced the most consistent bite, and the calm stretch of weather we experienced at the end of the month made the presentation of our new Lure’M In Wahoo baits simply irresistible to these toothy speedsters.
The inshore scene was pretty hot in October. One of the more consistent Yellowtail Snapper and Kingfish bites we’ve had in recent years, especially being so early on the season. The plentitude of fresh bait inshore has a lot to do with the increased activity. We even found some schools of 10-15lbs Mahi’s chasing bait just a couple miles from our marina, which was a real treat for a number of our inshore trips with younger anglers.
Its been a solid start to the 2014/2015 season and next up on the tournament circuit is the Anegada tournament this weekend. We hope you’ll get out on the water with us if you’re planning a visit to St. Thomas or St. John in the coming months!
