Reef May 26

Beautifully calm day and unfortunately calm bite.  We hit two spots yellowtail snapper fishing and both started off great and then died out with bait stealers.  The yellowtail we got were nice sized, 16 to 18 inch fish, but the fish that made the day were the 19 to 20 inch mutton snapper identifying as yellowtails.

The bait stealers, Scrawled Filefish, made it a challenge to get baits back to the good eating fish.  Plus there were some smaller Cero Mackerel cutting hooks off.  We tried offshore for a couple of hours, but didn't find any magic floaters or a solid weedline.  Had a few smaller fish in the lures but nothing like a couple of days ago.

So it was a slow day, but more than enough quality fish for dinner thanks to the two nice Mutton

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,
