Crappy Day on The Reef..9/27

Well the day started out good. Me and 3 friends got to the marina and gassed up by 9:30am. We started out by catching some pins and greenies off honeymoon island. Then headed to Dunedin Reef. Ive always had luck out there. I should have known the day wasn't going to be good when my friend lost my anchor. Knucklehead tied the wrong line to the cleat and tossed her over..

We stopped at a spot before the reef where i always catch snapper, and the occasional undersized grouper..NADA, Zilch not even a bite.. So i decided to run to the reef..NADA, Zilch..The other boats out there weren't catching anything as well. **** did someone catch all the fish?

After about 2 hrs w/ nothing, and 1 friend seasick(the same guy who lost my anchor btw) we decided to go inshore and head to Frencys for lunch..At least there i got to see some fish!!!! On my plate..

    no wonder your buddy got sick i was going to go king fishing yesterday about 4pm i couldnt get out the pass as there was breaking waves! and if you find the ledge i have marked out of dunedin reef you will catch lots of fish usually .on saturday i had a guy 10 feet from me i was on the ledge he wasnt i was catching he was fishing just how that spot is i think its because all the jewfish around there the fish hold tight to that ledge so they dont get inhaled
