Just a Warm Up

This week, one of my favorite charters is back again to fish with me. We are fishing 4 days total, but only fishing a half day as a bit of a warm up on day 1. We headed south of Key West at 8 am in search of major action. After about a 20 minute boat ride, we arrived at an area of reef that is great for snapper fishing. Near the full moon in July, the Mangrove snapper spawn on the reefs here in Key West so I was very confident we’d see a lot today. We dropped the anchor and the rest was history. 

We landed more snappers than we could have kept track of. There were so many that we were keeping only the biggest Mangrove and Yellowtail snappers. We even had to let plenty of legal sized fish go. In addition, we landed a few sharks up to 200 lbs and a monster Yellow jack. The 4 hours flew by and we were soon back at the dock cleaning fish so that Mike and his 2 sons could enjoy them for lunch. Another, near perfect, half day with all the action we could handle and a few surprises thrown in. It’s days like today that just can’t be beat. Time to get ready for round 2 and crush it again.
