    urbanRenewal, the reef and luck - 3/27 Cudjoe west of Looe Key

    Vicky is down from VA visiting so we did offshore trolling the other day, trying to get her hooked up with Mahi and got skunked. The next day was diving for lobster. She found lots out there but most were shorts! Then a day of diving on Looe Key which is a canít miss proposition. We were one for three and today was the day for reef fishing.

    For those who know me my success at reef fishing is abysmal. But, in the spirit of better lucky than good, we managed to get Vicky her first yellowtail, and it was a 20Ē fork flag ! We finished our few hours out there with a few more small YTs, a remora and some needlefish.

    Given the wind over the past few weeks it was great to be able to get her on the water for 4 straight days. Even better that she landed that Yellowtail.

    After your comment about Wahoo off KW you have no idea how hard it was to drop that anchor

    Very Nice yellowtail for Vicki. I am sure that was exciting Tom. Glad to see she is highlighted on FS forum page too.
