So, what’s the deal? Is Father’s Day fishing the only day dad can get out on the water and catch a few? LOL While it is generally about dad, this year’s Father’s Day fishing was also about some young sons. Even a few daughters.
We were very busy over the weekend even though the forecast was kind of gloomy. But the attitude seemed to be that since the fish were already wet, why not…
The fishing has been pretty good, and it didn’t fail us Father’s Day weekend. Kingfish and Bonitos have been providing good action on both the drift and sport fishing boats. A few Tuna are mixed in with the Bonitos and that’s always a nice surprise.
For those on the drift fishing boat that bothered to drop to the bottom? Mutton, Yellowtail and Vermillion snapper made up a nice catch each trip.
Our sport boat was also working some of the shallow wrecks and reefs we have and as I said, it’s also about the kids on dad’s day. Check out this monster Barracuda caught by this young angler! Isn’t it great when you’re young and short? You can say you caught a fish bigger than you! And it’s true… Well, it was. LOL
Father’s Day fishing was a blast but no reason to wait for the day to come around again. They are biting right now.
