It’s been another awesome week fishing the reefs! Although the weeds are still currently moving in on us, the hot kingfish bite has remained on fire. We’re hitting limits every day and every trip. Mixed in with the kings are cudas, bonitos, and jack crevales. Between these species, it’s been non-stop action. Frozen cigar minnows are working well for us when we can’t find live bunker. Don’t forget to try the cans for greenies with sabiki gear.
Bottom fishing for grouper and amberjack has been a bit slow due to cold water. However, the red snapper are pushed up closer to the surface, making their catch-and-release easy and fun. Chicken rigging for triggers and Beeliners has been great, too — you just gotta find them first, lol.
Big congrats to Capt. Morgan for pulling in a 51lb cobia and 45lb king on an afternoon half-day charter this week!
