Reef Fishing in the Lower Keys
For a change…. I wanted an easy day of fishing at anchor on the reef. Some music, some cold beverages, and I really wanted a keeper Grouper. Everyone catches undersized ones, but a keeper is special. We tried out a new spot and the bottom looked good and the fish finder was a beeping!! Anchor dropped, music on, and cold beverage close by…. We got down to the business of fishing. My partner always goes for the Yellowtail snapper…. And he was reeling them in! I caught a nice Red Grouper, but it was obviously too small. After a nice Porgy, and a little frustration…. This big boy hit my line!! Score!! We may be in between seasons for fishing in the keys, but they’re always out there! Switch up your thinking. Switch up your style. Switch up your bait. Just switch it up and see what you can make happen!!
