Hey guys fished near one of the bridges last week in the keys got there pretty early catching the incoming tide and stayed for a few hours after the outgoing and must of caught over 50 fish but not one keeper !?? A combination of yellow tail and mangroves but all were no more than 6 to 7 in long. Bait of choice live shrimp. I have always fished this spot in the dead of summer with good success but never around this time. Question is am I too early or am I doing something wrong ? :huh

    It's spawning season for the mangroves. The mature snapper are out on the reefs making babies!
