wreck fishing and new "blog" on my website
With the amount of bait we have had inshore, I have been spending between a 1/2 hr and hour each morning loading up my wells before heading offshore. Choice size pinfish and white bait make for some non stop action.
This weekend was no different with 3 throws of the cast net providing over 150 pinfish and an equal amount of good size pilchards.
We anchored up on the wreck, deployed a chum bag, only to find the chum running opposite of the wind right up the anchor line. we made do, and deployed knocker rigs down slowly as close to the wreck as we could.
The action was non stop. We had a bunch of mangroves and yellowtail that got hit by the taxman. We put the heat on a couple solid amberjacks that hit the deck. we had one that was bleeding pretty bad so he joined our crew for the smoker.
The almaco jacks were pretty fired up, and I feel they are often overlooked for their tablefare. My crew already reported back they absolutely loved it.
We had a few nosey barracudas, and after a few attempts we finally got a pretty good one to eat and not chew thru the metal leader.
We had a couple Goliaths hit but got the better of us and made it back to their safe haven ( the wreck.)
All in all a great day on the water, and one these guys will not soon forget...
