Over Under - Viewing Report 2005-06-10 - Early June Report - Cat Island Rum Cay Bahamas The OVER UNDER has fished 5 of the last 6 days at Cat Island, some days fishing two boats. A few yellowfin tuna have been caught on most days, some going 40 , but most in the 25-30 range.
Finishing up a 3 1 2 day trip on Friday, our last group caught approximately 30 dolphin, 5 yellowfin, and a longbill spearfish. On the billfish front, the group also pulled the hooks on 2 blue marlin, a sailfish, and a white marlin.
There are also an unusually greater number of white marlin and sailfish being raised, to Blue Marlin. The OVER UNDER put in an impressive showing in the billfish tournament this past week, going into the final day tied on points for the money.
now that's the type of fishing we expect at Cat Island. There will be approximately 30 boats competing in the event, which is a fish 3 out of 4 day tournament, with calcutta's for billfish release points, biggest tuna, dolphin, and wahoo.
Over Under - Viewing Report 2005-03-18 - Crooked Island Diana Bank Fishing Report - March 17, 2005 The OVER UNDER ran a road trip this past week, and ventured off to Rum Cay. The waters around Crooked Island and the Diana Bank were loaded with bait and life, but the bite was still fairly slow.
We hosted a make up charter consisting of John Eppehimer, John Eppehimer Sr., John Burkle, Bill Davis, and Scott Thorpe, over the last weekend in February. Scott Thorpe was on the rod, John Eppehimer leadered the fish, while Bill Davis sunk the first gaff, quickly followed by a larger one from Capt. Pete.
Over Under - Viewing Report 2005-02-12 - Cat Island, Bahamas - Hawks Nest - February 7, 2005 We are quite unpleased to report that the past week has brought some of the slowest offshore fishing we have ever encountered in the Islands. Ray McConnell from Ray's Offshore and owner of Blue Water Lures, fished with us earlier this week and commented that it was the slowest he had ever seen it in the Islands.
At the top of the list is this 116 Wahoo caught off Columbus Point at Cat Island the week of January 17th. We've had plenty of nice days over the last couple weeks and the bonefish have been around in good numbers.
