I had the same people as yesterday fish with me again today. This was only a half day trip so I had to make it happer fast.
We decided to anchor and try to catch some Yellow Tail Snapper. They are a delicious local snapper. Usually fairly easy to catch. They don’t get too large, but they are a lot of fun on spinning tackle. We were using 12 and 20 lb test spinners.
First spot had some larger Yellowtails, but we only got one to the boat. The sharks ate the rest so I made a quick move to a shallower spot and it worked. There were a few sharks around at the second spot, but be water was shallower, we could get the fish in before the shark had his way. We ended up with 1 or 2 short of our limit.
