Jakes and Macks, plus a few other critters

As is often the case, a beautiful day is not always super productive.  Still, Fishing 101 Oceanside for the Jakes was not too bad.  With no bird action to speak of and only one dolphin and one skipjack in the box, we hit the reef for intro Yellowtail which turned into whack the macks.  The Jakes and Dave had fun using their various fresh water chuggers to fire up surface strikes from the mack while I tried to entice a mutton snapper out of a swarm of nice yellow tails. The water was clear and flat so you had to really let the lines back for the 'tails.  That is boring compared to surface striking Cero Mackerel, so the Macks became the main event

With the clear water though, they could see all the fish they weren't catching as well as the ones that they did catch.  More than enough for dinner, but no monsters today.

Marathon in the Florida Keys should be your next fishing vacation destination. Join us for charter fishing, fishing guide trips or our fishing 101 so you can fish on your own with better success.

Tight lines,

Capt. Dallas
