Mark & Laura were selective in what they kept

Mark and Laura Wesselmann chose to keep only the largest yellowtail snapper they caught.

Traveling all the way from Carlsbad CA for the fourth year in a row, the Wesselmanns enjoy the use of the rental boat that comes with their accommodations at Rainbow Bend Resort.   This year, they decided they wanted to venture out a bit so they chartered SeaSquared for a half day trip to the reef.

The yellowtail bite was very good, and the pair easily could have kept their limit.  Instead, they kept only fish in the 15-inch and up class – about 17 of them – and threw back all the smaller keepers measuring 12 and 13 inches.

They also landed a bonus three-pound mangrove snapper.  Lots of good eating!
