Keith and Glenda Burres, from Corsicana TX, were troopers in some tough conditions.
Retired from the Air Force, Keith and Glenda enjoyed the accommodations at the US Coast Guard station in Marathon.
With four hours to catch dinner, I set out for the 150-foot depths on the reef where I know the snapper bite has been very good.
Unfortunately we had extremely tough conditions to start the day with little current and crystal clear water. When conditions improved later in the morning, the fish wouldn’t bite.
With great perseverance, I hit several spots and Keith and Glenda were able to put together a very respectable catch of yellowtail snapper in the 18- to 20-inch class plus a couple of cero mackerel. Plenty for a tasty dinner plus some!
