This is a simple and quick report… Right now if you are heading out to do some winter fishing, the Marietta Islands is your best bang for your fuel dollare. Now this is an 8 hr trip and the difference these last few days is not the bait, but rather the time!
If you are one of the Early Bird types that clings to the idea that fishing is at it´s best in the morning, that mentality right now is working against you… With the extreme tides, the Eclipse and the Moon and Stars all in strange alignment, hittin g the fishing grounds early is all but a waste of time.
If you are near the Marietta Islands, Anclote or the Reef is full of your favorite winter fish. Roosters, Snappers, Sierra Mackerals, Dorado, African Pompano and more… they are all in the 30 to 60 lb range and if you get there before 12, you spent time on the water wondering what the issue was. If you are not on the water, looking for a mid day to early afternoon bite, then you may just miss an outstanding opportunity at some arm burning lite tackle action….
At the right time, everything you throw at them is working… Jigs, Live bait, Plastic, no worries. Just make sure you are there between 12 and 2 i n the afternoon and you will understand what I am talking about…..
Same goes for Punta Mita and in the bay !
So there you go, the inside scoop for the next few days… use this information well… this message will self destruct in seven days…..
Take care and have a happpy and safe XXXmas…. Stan… Oh, and don´t forget to kiss your fish!
