We headed out on Sunday and the fish continued to bite well. We had constant action with jacks, snappers, mackerels, and blue runners. The highlight of the day was a 60 pound, 50" plus tarpon that hit my jig. After a bunch of jumps we brought her boatside for a quick release. Pro Tip: When fighting big fish, the line should always be going out or coming in. A bent rod with no line movement allows the fish to rest and prolongs the fight.
Headed to Islamorada last weekend with Patty, Mom, and Dad for a fun weekend. We started off on Saturday catching nonstop snappers, jacks, mackerels, and blue runners. Fun fishing at its finest. Pro Tip: Keeping your jig moving, even if it's slow, minimizes snags.
