Right now is one of the most diverse times of year for fisheries in the deep ocean and close to shore. During daylight hours there are great bites of tuna and marlin in the open ocean, while close to shore yellowtail and tarpon are still available in pretty good numbers. The heat of the day makes night fishing more attractive this time of year, and luckily there are currently plenty of night bites from mutton snapper, mangrove snapper and yellowtail. Shark fishing is at a peak right now, its suggested to always keep a bait ready incase a monster comes to investigate, you could hook into a world class fight.
Today at Tranquility Bay the temperature is expected to rise to 84°F, with partial cloud cover until close to sunset. The rest of the week is expected to be hot but with thunderstorms on and off for at least 5 days. There is some light wind expected today, but ocean conditions are expected to be pretty calm. There should be a particularly striking sunset tonight, about 8, because of the change in pressure as these storms move in.
