Good monday anglers!! hope everyone had a great weekend. Great weekend yet again on singer the man made reef has been producing. Sizes are up and tarpon are moving in.
Got to the my buddies house at 1130. Tide was dead low so we planned on catching the incoming tide in the comming hours. We headed down to the beach and got set up. Wind was maybe 5 knots, water temp was bathtub and color was crystal clear.
Curtis got to work with the chum bag and we were fishing. I decided to set up on the rocks like the week prior, I was not disapointed catching my limit on Mangrove Snapper in about an hour,all ranging in size of 12-14 inches.
I decided to join Curtis and Joel and fish with some whole sardines on a tripple hook rig on the reef. I set up and walked back to the base. no sooner did I put it in the rod holder to grab a drink it gets hit! Grabbed the pole and reeled her in. A nice size snapper but to small for regulations.
She went back to fight another day. Later in the day another Keeper was caught.
After releasing the Snapper we stayed with the whole sardines. after catching a few little snappers, we notice Joels pole doing a lil shimmy. he grabs it and BAM fish on. He gets it threw the reef and its a nice little cuda.
She was released as well.
All in all a Good day on the Island, My advice for a good day is bring the family, a few rods and a picnic basket and let nature do the rest…….A bucket of shrimp will help
4/0 hooks with live shrimp, 1 oz weight on fish finder rig. have a tight line as soon as it hits the water or you will not feel them “snap” your bait off. Work the reef and be prepared to have fun
