If its blowing patch reefs we going

With winds still a bit high we again put our time in on the patch reefs. We had non stop action catching fish after fish. We started the morning off catching some big Yellowtail snappers. Later we focused on bottom fishing and caught lots of Mutton snappers, Dog snappers, Mangrove snappers, Red groupers, and sharks. With just a few minutes left before heading home we hooked a big Goliath grouper on light spinning tackle. After a long and dramatic fight we were super luck to land a near 100 pounder.

Patch reefs paid off

With the seas still a bit choppy we stayed close to home and put our time in on some patch reef spots. We had fish after fish all trip long. Landing over 15 mutton snappers and at lease 6 groupers and countless other species. Keeping only what we needed and letting most go we still came home with a nice pile of meat. By far our best catch of the day was this monster Mutton snapper that was every bit of 15lbs.

 

Snappers snapping

Today we headed out at 8am for a morning 4 hour fishing trip. We started out on a section of reef that is one of my favorites. The action was uncommonly slow so after 20 min we headed to a wreck in 90 feet hoping to change our luck. We didn’t have to wait very long and the fishing was red hot. We caught snapper after snapper as fast at we could put a line out. During our trip we also caught a few small sharks and some Barracudas on the side.

 

Fish eating after Eta

Today we fishing an evening 3 hour trip from 3:15 pm to 6:15 pm. We had an absolutely beautiful trip. We had lots of action calm seas and plenty of fish for dinner.

We fished the reef and landed lots of snappers and even one big Red grouper. We come home just after sunset and I sent my charter to dinner with the freshest fish possible.
