Yellowtail Snapper Question
Hey guys. Thanks in advance for your responses.
So this summer I am looking forward to anchoring and chumming for yellowtail/mutton snapper. Lately I have been more conscious on how I handle/store fish. I have been using an insulated fish bag with plenty of ice to keep fish as fresh as possible. Also I have been bleeding/gutting the catch.
My question: If I am anchored with a school of yellowtail behind the boat, will the bite shut down if I bleed/gut my catch? Will the yellowtail smell their own blood and shut down the bite?
What are your thought or theories?
