This past week would be rated a 6/10 on the Richter scale. One day was great and the next days were dead. Kings were hard to get due to the weed population — it’s absolutely unbelievable what we are dealing with here. It’s virtually impossible to get a bait out without snagging a weed in the first five feet and I sure hope it clears up soon. It’s making us look like a fool blaming poor fishing on weeds…..
Bottom fishing has been very good, though. AJs, almacos and banded rudders are plentiful on all the wrecks and ledges. This is providing much needed action to save the days on our trips. Grouper are a tad slower due to the millions of giant red snaps.
