Capt. Jorge Fernandez
November 29, 2010
Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

After doing boat maintenance and what seemed like weeks of bad weather I was able to get out and do some fun fishing with my buddy Hector. The plan was to go out of Government Cut and head north toward the Green and Blue Diamonds. Bait was very hard to find so we called Pedro from Ashley Live Bait and he hook as up with a live well full of very lively pilchards. We set up north of the Diamonds in 110' of water, the strong South current and the wind pushed us Southwest. The first drift produced two Mutton Snappers and a Kingfish. For our second drift we pushed out to 150' where we pick up a Sailfish, a Spanish mackerel and 2 more Kingfish. After the second drift the wind started to pick up so we decided to go to the Range Marker and fish for Mackerels. We ended up catching 5 more Spanish Mackerels and called it a day by noon.

With cold fronts coming through regularly the Black Groupers should start getting hot and heavy on the reef (remember grouper closes January 1, 2010), use enough weight to hold bottom. Make sure your weight is not bouncing on the bottom and use big baits Ballyhoo and Speedo's are my favorite. Depending on the current I use a leader as short as 8 feet or as long as 30 feet with 7/0 circle hook, ensure your tackle is heavy enough to drag these bruisers off the bottom. Also troll the reef with plugs between 20 to 30" depth and you will get your share for dinner.

I still have plenty of days available for December and January if you want to spend so time on the water with family and/or friends call or email me.
