Sorry for the late report but I wanted to have the video ready to go along with it. Fished for a week out of Tavernier the first week of may on a full moon. Had the worst time locating live bait but it seemed like every bait we put out caught a sail or a BBF (big black fin tuna). On the week we ended up with 7 sails 5 bbf bunch of small bf and a couple small fish. The sails and tunas all struck late in the after noon mainly because we spent most of the day trying to find bait. We stayed around 120 feet right out of Tavernier creek and bump trolled one or two livies at a time. There were a few days we started fishing with only two baits, caught two fish, and headed back for more bait. All in all we had a great trip caught a bunch of fish and cant wait to get back. Check out the video at
We are headed back to marathon over new years would love advice for that ever so precious live bait.
