Well, it was a good day yesterday for kayak fishing east of the south tower at Thachers Island west of Londoner reef and the big iron pole. Water temps were in the low 70′s, sun was out, few boats were on the water.
Schoolie bass were rounding up on the surface, indifferent to all baits and lures but stippling the water then thrashing did the midwater column when the kayaks spooked them.
As any angler will tell you, bleed blues. Be sure to rip out….err, remove their gills.
