09/26 Reef Drifting With Pilchards - Key West

With the Pilchards readily available and wanting to see the water clarity out at the reef, I grabbed a dozen or so of some Jumbo Pilchards and headed out to the reef. The day was overcast so really could not see what the clarity was like. Since the wind was running from the South, I really couldn't do a drift, so anchored in 100' just outside of the secondary reef. Dropping down, kept getting whacked by reef sharks so pulled anchor and did one drift. Turned out to be a good idea as I picked up a nice 21" flag Yellowtail and then a bonus 23" fat Mutton. Need to see if West Marine is open and if they have gotten chum back in stock for the next trip out.
