Fishing Wrecks in Miami.
Sunday March 19
We headed offshore to go sailfish, as soon as we got out their we noticed there was no current at all so game plan changed to hit the wrecks.
Rigged up a big rod with about 15 feet of Bullbuster 80lb leader with a 6/0 hook. Our bait was sardines or ballyhoo. We got to the wreck and dropped the baits, we had few hits than finally a good strike. I am hooked up with a fish that fought almost the entire way up to the surface.
I had a little African Pompano. So we drifted back over the wreck a few more times than a big strike.
A 22lber! A slow day ended up with two africans! I dropped more baits than finally got something to eat, felt like a mutton the whole time ended up being my first of its kind.
A Scamp Grouper! Never caught one before until now.
Used 80lb Bullbuster regular leader the whole day for the wrecks.
No amberjacks at all, many boats at each wreck which could have pushed them off for a while.

Every day is a new day for Mutton Snapper. Except when sharks are around.
The muttons in that shallow water range from 3lbs to 13lbs, everyday is a different day for them. Once we fished their for a few hours we headed to some deeper wrecks for other snapper. Soon to realize as soon as we put the chum out, sharks were everywhere. The commercial guys were king fishing in the same area, gutting all their catch creating a frenzy for the sharks. Anything you hooked on the bottom was eaten, no lie within 3 seconds. READ MORE
Heading west, shallow waters, chum bags and jigs, SNAPPER HEAVEN.
After catching tons of bonito and a blackfin we continued West to find the shallow water. At the shallow waters (no more than 10 feet) you put a chum out and drift along with the wind. You will soon find out you have tons of yellowtail in the chum. You cast behind those with a super strong yellowtail jig, you catch muttons. READ MORE
