world best yellowtail snapper fishing : Bermuda

kilsongkilsong Posts: 62 Deckhand
We know all world record yellowtail snapper are coming from Bermuda.
So, I set up an overnight trip on the Playmate for yellowtail snapper in Bermuda last week.
We are not disappointed. All Capt and fishermen in Bermuda told us our trip is the best ever yellowtail snapper trip in Bermuda.

Here are pictures of the trip.

We used light tackle. Gilbert used Black Hole Magic Eye light jigging rod and Sam used 76" BH Magic Eye conventional rod while I used 7'5" BH Magic Eye 753 spinning rod which I used for tuna also.










9.5 lb

    Capt Kevin is a cool dude and runs a jam up outfit. They crush fish.

    All catches belong to the charter boats in Bermuda.
    Very few boats fish yellowtail there as most boats like to catch big game fish like marlin, tuna or whoo.
    That is why there are big yellowtail snapper because fishing pressure is very light.

    Once in a life time fishing is good only once. I am done with yellowtail snapper fishing in Bermuda unless my friends threaten me to go. :)

    I haven't tried jigs, but I feel jigs could work like mutton snapper hit jigs.
    Capt Kevin tried with a fly rod without success.
