A half day's reef catch
We continue to catch a few Sailfish along the edge of the reef. This fishing will improve as the weather cools. We are beginning to see huge schools of Ballyhoo on the reef which is also a good sign for the improvement of our Sailfishing. Bottom fishing along the reef edge has been productive. Yellowtail, and Mutton Snapper along with a few Grouper are biting as well as King Mackeral and Cero. We have caught quite a few Cero in the last several days in the 10 pound range, thats a big Cero- and great fighters on light tackle.
As is typical this time of year, we are between seasons so there is a little bit of everything going on. Yellowtail Snapper are biting on the reef, a few Dolphin remain offshore and Tuna and Sailfish are increasing in numbers in the waters just offshore of the reef. In four days of fishing last week we raised 6 Sailfish, 5 of which bit. We also caught Tuna each day. This fishing will continue to improve as the weather cools.
