Yellowtails On The Rise


This week we have fished all over the place but the greatest fun we had was with the great yellowtail snapper bite. Durning this time of year the yellowtails will mostly be on the reef anywhere between 100′ to 25′ feet of water but lately 40′ of water has been the hot zone.  The size have been great, I haven’t had to measure a fish all month.  We are not getting the great big ones, but most fish measuring 16″-18″ which is a great size for how many we have been catching. image The choice of bait has been red meat, mainly Bonita or Jack creavalle. Some days we use 1/16 oz. jigs and some days no weight at all, but what ever you use one day it may not be what you use the following day, that’s fishing. Adapt to the conditions is the key to success. If the bite slows down or stops, start changing bait size or type.  If that doesn’t help lengthen leader or use lighter florocarbon.
