3 Day Pulley Ridge LITE: Mutton and Tuna

The resounding success of the deepwater Pulley Ridge trips would be enough for most captains. Fortunately for anglers, it motivates the Yankee Capts. to raise the bar again. For those who have yet to be enlightened, to say Pulley Ridge is special is an understatement. It is among the deepest photosynthetic reefs in the world. Coupled with current flows and proximity to deeper water, it allows for some truly fascinating flora and fauna(read: fish, and lots of them!). After countless hours cross-referencing bathymetric charts with live data and catch logs, Capt. Greg has found an abundant fishery in the shoal waters of Pulley Ridge, one that is waiting for anglers to enjoy. Meet Pulley Ridge Lite. This new trip will focus in waters in the 200-400 ft range (conditions permitting), making electric reels unnecessary. As in the deepwater trips, long drifts over productive bottom will be the mainstay of the trip. In addition to drifting baits along the bottom, the shoal water fishery offers another amazing opportinuty: deep jigging! The fish in this area respond very well to vertical jigging, with anglers commonly catching “fire truck” red grouper, yellowmouth grouper, blackfin snapper, hambone snapper, mutton snapper, black grouper, yellowfin grouper, and much more all on deep jigs during the day time. After dark, the fishing continues in a similar fashion. Anglers typically switch to drifting with bait on the bottom for continued action on grouper and snapper. Those that wish to keep getting jiggy with it enjoy hot action with blackfin tuna through the night. This trip is sure to be a jigger’s delight.

3 Day Rankin Ridge

With the intense popularity of our Pulley Ridge trips, the wheels started to spin in the Yankee Capts wheelhouse. After looking at charts and getting intel from commercial sources, Capt Greg started to wonder, if it’s this great on Pulley Ridge, what if we went a little further? So we ventured out 50 miles northwest of our famed fishing grounds. What we found are deepwater wrecks and springs, as well as open bottom from 65 to 80 fathoms. Plus all the deep drop grounds you could ask for with plenty of confirmed areas to fish on virgin grounds for our recreational fishermans. Anglers can expect to be at least 150 miles plus from Key West. Among others, we’re likely to see species like grey and golden tile, scamp grouper, kitty mitchell, snowy’s warsaw and yellowedge grouper. These trips will sell out, no doubt about it. It is being offered at limited load, just like our Pulley Ridge trips. Tackle requirements will be the same, so be sure you have the gear it takes for a trip of this magnitude. Don’t miss this boat! This trip will adhere to the same angler limits as Pulley Ridge (20 anglers only) and follows all LIMITED LOAD cancellation policies.
