Holidays and Crowds Gone, But it's Still Warm
Report Date: January 4, 2017
Lots of families took advantage of the holiday week, warm weather and friendly seas to go fishing. This young man received a 12" fishing rod for Christmas so John the mate rigged the rod with a sabiki rig and small lead. They were rewarded with several stringers of herring.
Once the rod was properly christened, the boat took off for the shallow reef to tease up one more grouper before the season closed. The anglers were rewarded with a sizable grouper on the planner rod with a yellow-green weighted lure and 30' leader.
The young ladies family came aboard the Blue Waters 2 but the wind was 25 knots out of the East! No fears, the crew put out special feathers and a very shallow planner and were rewarded with some bites. The largest keeper was the mackerel.
The pictures illustrates that sometimes catching the fish is more fun than posing with the fish for a picture.
We had great fun all week with anglers of all sizes and ages.
Reserve now for the upcoming Sailfish season.
