We Had a Good Half Day Fishing Trip on the Reef
Today was a short trip. Only 4 hours, so I have to find “bites” quickly. It is still a little early for the reef action to be at its best. But the offshore has been too much of a gamble, especially on a half-day trip. I explained this to my customers and agreed. They would rather catch more fish than “swing for the fence” looking for one big fish. We fished along the reef and the outer bar. The weather was beautiful and the seas were calm. The action was not crazy busy, but decent for a 4 hr trip, (approx. 2.5 hrs fishing time). We released a number of barracudas and one very large, very powerful Horse Eye Jack. We let them all go. At the end of the day we did keep one nice Kingfish and one nice Cero Mackerel for dinner.
Some people don’t like Kingfish, but if you know how to cook it, it’s delicious!
Everybody likes Cero Mackerel, One of my favorites:
Winter is coming!
If you live in the North, (and everybody lives north of here), you know the cold winds will soon be blowing.
