Boy it's Hot Out There

Since it is so hot we left the dock at 6:30 to beat the heat.  This was a fishing 101 so we didn't stay on these Yellowtail Snapper long but there were a few in the 18 inch range willing to bite.  Had to wade through a lot of barely legals though.  Mangroves were about the same, lots and lots of barely legal fish on most spots with the big ones not all that aggressive on the morning tide.  The bigger tide is this afternoon/evening so the guys will likely do better on the turn around.

We stopped to play with one large Jack Crevalle, about 15 pounds I guess, that is headed to the smoker.  Not one of my preferred fish, but smoke does wonders and they do know how to fight.

This attempt at editing a video of the Jack Crevalle isn't all that great but at least some of it seems to have uploaded.  I might work on it later.

The action on the rock piles was a little off, but a few nice porgies went in the box along with a Yellowtail.  Not a single grouper today on the rock piles and the Hogfish were short.  On the whole an okay fishing 101, but I would like to see the bigger 'tails get more aggressive so you don't have to deal with so many barely legal fish.

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,
