We started December off with some bottom fishing, most of the other charter boats have not hit any wrecks in the past 2 months. Having Live speedos and Pin fish  is key for the deep wrecks over 180 ft deep. For the shallower wrecks in 90ft- 150ft,  we prefer live Pilchards and Thread Fin Herring. In December we caught a mix of exotic bottom fish, Red SnapperMutton SnapperAmberjack, and Grouper. Here are a few photos from our bottom fishing trips.

Besides the bottom fishing, we continue to pull live Ballyhoo around on Light Tackle Spinning Gear . This tactic remains deadly for Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Blackfin Tuna.  December  is the best month  of year to catch a Sailfish on Light Tackle.

The Best Weather conditions for Ballyhoo fishing is calm to a light chop. Wind can be a major obstacle while pulling live Hoos around. If the Wind picks above 9 kts, I prefer to Kitefish with Thread Fin Herring. Catching the Large scale bait remains difficult. Keeping them alive is another story, but obtaining these baits is a must.  Here is a picture  of these Beauttiful Specimens in our live well.
