Always improving where and how we fish, Yankee Capts is excited to introduce an all-new trip. Focusing on the rich waters of the world famous Dry Tortugas, Drifting & Dreaming will consist of both bait and jig fishing while drifting over the area’s fertile reefs rather than anchoring. Target species will remain prized mutton and yellowtail snapper, various grouper and king mackerel. Drifting rather than anchoring will allow the captain to fish areas previously off limits. Drifting & dreaming trips are strictly limited to 22 anglers. Expect to fish areas of the Gulf of Mexico where anglers are permitted to harvest grouper, except gag grouper, which must be released. Expect average depths in the 100+ ft. range with near vertical presentations. The successful techniques we’ve been employing out at Halfway Ledge will be used during these exciting trips as well.
After wrapping up one drift trip so far, here are a couple of quick thoughts on the trip-
- Anglers need to be able to jig. Especially slow pitch jigging.
- Anglers need to be flexible and be able to switch it up when needed. Anglers who paid attention and made the switch when needed.
- All baits must not spin. Its is best to fish strips only. If you insist on fishing google eyes they must be butterflied. No chunks, they spin. proper presentation is key, not what you use.
