On the wrecks, the King Mackerel are showing up rather nicely, and even a handful of Wahoos. The sharks have been backing off a little on the wrecks as the water temps have cooled off just a bit, which has been really nice. The Mutton Snappers and Groupers are starting to chew a little bit as well, so these areas have been pretty action packed as well. Plenty of Jacks in these areas still too, so plenty to do on the wrecks. Even a few Cobia showing up, so the table fare this past week has been epic!
The reef remains fairly consistent with good current, although, it has definitely been a little challenging finding it going behind the boat. We have just made a “wiggle” when necessary until we got it right and it hasn’t let us down yet. The Yellowtails and Mangroves are still chewing, and there have even been a few Sailfish starting to show up. The Ballyhoos are here, and are really thick, so it is setting up to be a great fall/winter. We are really looking forward to some cool weather, and for the winter season to begin.
Well, that is it for this week! Let me know if you need any tips, or would like to book a trip!
