We’re halfway through June and the fishing is looking pretty good, according to the anglers over there at Pisces Fishing Group. While a full moon “skunked” boats on the 14th, things steadily picked up over the rest of the week. Billfish are coming in nicely, and marlin are expected to start showing up. The report does note that they typically start off small each summer, and increase in size as we move closer to October.
