Miami mutton Report 2/5/12 Yellow Tails

Today, I went for the 5th time on the( take it easy). It’s a 30ft Robalo, out of key Biscayne. The seas were suppose to be 3 ft it was 2 to 4 at first then picked up, before we left around 2:pm it was already 4 to 6 feet, with east to southeast winds. We anchored in 90 feet, We were the only boat in the area. The tide was moving, but slow, started to chum and there came the yellow ball, the kids Inigo and John, started to catch tails back to back, while Ed, was fishing on the bottom, where he had a few hits and lost some nice fish. but the next few fish, made up for it, he put up the bottom rod and started catching some very nice tails, we also got taxed by a shark at least 3 times, on big drag peeling tails. In the mix we got one nice mack,5 rainbow runners and 9 bonitos and a bar jack that we used for bait. We stopped to re-count thinking we had the limit and ended up short of the limit by that time we got invaded by the bonitos and called it a day at 2:pm.

    Nice bro! We went out of BP and didn't catch anything out by PL. The swells were huge. NOAA had it at 2-4. 2-4 my ***, more like 5-7. We went in to Elliot and kept 4 nice 3+ lb Mangos. With those swells, I didn't even think of anchoring my little 22' Anacapri. lol..

    Benny, great day in the water, very sporty by the way
    I really think we got 4 -6 all the time and a lot 7's
    I really enjoyed the hole day, to see such a force in the ocean
    is really amazing.
    Fishing was again fantastic, next time I hope we nail the mutton's
    we lose quite a few in the bottom .

    every time we go out we break our record with the biggest yellow tail
    in my boat.

    some of yesterday's YT where quite impressive.

    Wish the best to all
    Until the next time

    The marine weather forecast messed up again forecasting seas around 3 feet and it was a steady 18 to 25 kts, at black point and we waited to see if it would drop and clear up a bid and it cleared up a bit but the wind was hauling,check out the flag pole at black all thanks for the replies and tight lines.Photo1101.jpg

    eduardo and benny, very nice job. congrats.
    But if you only have love for your own race
    Then you only leave space to discriminate
    And to discriminate only generates hate
    And when you hate then you're bound to get irate

    Nice catch,looks like you did well and lucky, the cuda got full with the groupers or you would of gotten some muttons taken too.The muttons are eating better each day. I've had two reports of more than a dozen caught by to different,people I know.within the last couple of days.But the weather this weekend is not predicted to be good.thanks for the comments and tight lines to all.

    Bad weather, Great fishing. It makes it worthwhile to tolerate the bad weather when the fishing is that good.

    Those are some fat flags. ****.

    Are these being caught off wrecks or the reef?
