This trip was simply reef fishing. We get to 8A, find a nice spot and
set anchor. Its very affordable, with the engines silent all day also!
Having been very slow the past few days in the afternoon, there was
a little concern with what the morning bite would hold. Though the
Sea Bass and Trigger bite was still not great, it was better.
Another fish was on the reef that my guest really wanted to catch,
Shark! And ones they could keep. The Atlantic Sharpnosed Shark
were here all day, and besides being a great fight on light tackle,
they are also very good eating. They may not be the fighter that King
is, but they do taste better! Everyone got to catch Shark, and were
happy about that!
We did have a nice King hit our flat line also, a nice 30 lb
fish, that makes for a nice fight on spinning tackle while anchored up.
We also had 4 Cobia come to the boat, but despite being curious,
refused everything from live to frozen to artificial. It was questionable if
they were keeper sized anyway. Manta, Eagle and Cownosed Rays were
seen by the boat at one time or another this trip. We also had what was
likely a Goliath grab a live Grunt and run into the ledge. Eventually we
retrieved the line, with hook straightened. It was a good drag peeling while
it lasted!
To the docks and cleaning fish we went. A lot of meat was bagged up,
and sunburned and sore arms left as a reminder of the days adventure.
