Reef action packed 4 hour

Today we started our day by trolling the beautiful reef here in Key West. We trolled 2 large deep diving plugs around the reef for about and hour. We landed 1 beautiful black grouper and a few Barracudas.  With not as many bites as we had hoped we switched gears and tried our luck anchored up on the reef. I move to a beautiful patch of reef in about 70 feet that I frequent often. After putting the chum bag in and getting the lines out it wasn’t long and we landed a bunch of nice Yellowtail snappers and one big Mutton.

 

Trip 2 of the day

After my morning trip it was a quick turn around before I was loaded up with my next charter. My second charter was a group of 6 awesome young guys. We started our trip on the reef catching monster sharks and yellowtail snappers. We landed 3 Lemon sharks all well over 200lbs and a fisty Bull shark in the 150lb range. After all the shark madness and some really nice yellowtail snappers we headed to a wreck in search of some mutton snappers. It was not long and we had found exactly what we came for. We landed 5 muttons with 3 being legal before packing it in and heading back. Hope I get the chance to take these boys back out on the water again some day. We had a blast out there cracking jokes and making life long memories.
