Jim McDermott and John Yaquinto with their yellowtail catch

Captain’s Blog – November 19, 2009 – Marathon Florida Keys – Marathon locals Jim McDermott and John Yaquinto enjoyed a half day of reef fishing with SeaSquared Charters

Conditions were excellent with wind and current running in the same direction.  There was a nice breeze out of the northeast and the visability at 50 feet was crystal clear.

The yellowtail were thick and responded quickly.  The guys lost a couple of the larger ‘tails to goliath grouper and a big king mackerel.  They got their limit of 16-17 inch yellowtail in about 90 minutes.  It was Jim’s first experience yellowtailing, and it certainly will not be his last!

There was tons of bait fish – ballyhoo and speedos – but they saw no sailfish.
