December is the season of joy and Holiday cheer, and it seems that just about everything and everyone is in a bit of a frenzy. From the bottom to the top of the water column the bottom, fishing will yield cheer in December
During this festive time of year the Grouper are frisky, the Snapper are biting hard, and the Sailfish and Cobia will join in on the festivities. All of this action will be going on while we deal with shorter days and the winter-time weather patterns.
Last call for Grouper! When fishing for these grumpy sea beasts, our number one recommendation is to opt for live bait and a rod with some backbone. There is no time to waste, the grouper season will be closing December 31st, so take this opportunity to bring yours home before the year ends.
The Snapper will continue to bite with plentiful catches and variety. The Lane Snapper will be nice and fat from the summer months and December will be great month to best your record. There will also be plenty of Mutton and Gray snappers to fill the fish box.
The Sailfish will make their presence known with spectacular runs and areal acrobatics. Fighting one of these beautiful, high-speed fish will leave you breathless and with an impression that lasts a lifetime. Look for the baitfish around the reefs as a good indicator to where to throw the lines out. Cobia will also surface and can make for a pleasant addition to a day of fishing. Lastly, the merry Mackerel will join the rest of the choir and make your reel sing a joyful carol!
Be sure to advantage of weather windows as fishing will be hot and the weather nice and cool. We want to thank all of you that sailed with us this year, and wish all the readers happy holidays from the Captain and Crew on The Lady Chris.
Tight lines and good vibes!
