Yellowtail for Dinner

With the slow season in full swing I haven't been out much but I did have a great trip Thursday. My crew wanted to run offshore for tuna and dolphin but I talked them into starting on the reef first. Good thing, one of the crew started getting green in the one foot seas.

We hung in long enough to catch a mess of yellowtails for dinner. We only kept the ones in the 14 plus inch range and got close to their limit in about an hour. Since we had plenty of fish for dinner and a sea sick crew member we headed into the bridge.

We had plenty of live blue runners in the 4 to 6 inch range for bait. The action was pretty hot once the current changed to incoming. Plenty of jack crevalle in the ten pound range for fun on light tackle, tons of mangrove snapper, a black grouper that just missed the size limit and a couple of mystery fish that we couldn't turn.

Other than that trip, I have been building bars and starting to get the proline ready for the Fantasy Fest week fishing trip. November bookings are starting to pickup and the Bayside reports are getting better. I am really looking forward to cobia for dinner and smoked mackerel dip appetizers.

Tight lines,
Enjoy some Marathon Heart of the Florida Keys Fishing
