NEARSHORE PATCH REEF ACTION.
This morning was another record setter! The temperature was 47f at 6:45 am, when do we start selling snowmobile tours? That aside, the shallow patch reef in as shallow as 10 ft of water on out to 25 ft held good numbers of fish. Baracuda will bask in the sun just under the surface of the water soaking up the warmth of the sun and looking for slow moving baits. We used Hank Brown Hook Up Lures tube lures to catch ‘Cudas up to 15 lbs. Live shrimp on 1/4 oz jigs worked slowly across the bottom produced good numbers of Snapper and Sheepshead. As the day warmed up Cero Mackerel came into the slick and livened things up. Capt. Jack Carlson did very well on reef fish as well as several nice Cobia as an added bonus.
