Snapper Action

Today, we headed out on a little half day; it was a father and his 2 sons. We parked the boat and released the chum in about 60 feet of water. It wasn’t long and we had Yellowtails balled up behind the boat. We were catching Yellowtails one after the other and having a blast. As we were reeling in one of our snappers, a Barracuda grabbed him and ripped the fish in half, leaving only the head. I quickly unhooked the head and put it on a rod rigged specifically for this situation. We tossed the head back in the water and the Barracuda crushed it immediately. After a good fight, we boated him for a few pictures before letting him go.

Before heading home, we got one more awesome bite from a big Yellow jack that came right up to the back of the boat. All in all, another great day on the water. We had nonstop action along with a few surprise big fish mixed in. After cutting up our catch, the boys and their father headed off to a restaurant to have there fresh catch prepared. Half day fishing charters are an awesome way to get your day started in paradise. We usually get back to the dock at 12Pm; the perfect time for a fish lunch and lot’s of leftover time to explore the island.
