Halfway Ledge is a stretch of broken bottom, approximately 25 miles beyond the Dry Tortugas. After driving over this area extensively and making a few exploratory drops along this ridge, this spot has proven to have an excellent showing of black and scamp grouper, large yellow-eye and mutton snapper in roughly 200-400 feet of water.
On a Pulley Ridge Lite Trip, we focus in waters in the 300-400 ft range (conditions permitting), making electric reels unnecessary. As in the deepwater Pulley 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 deep jigging. The fish on the western ridge respond very well to vertical jigging, with anglers commonly catching red grouper, scamp grouper, blackfin snapper, hambone snapper, mutton snapper, black grouper, yellowfin grouper, and much more all on deep jigs during the day time.
This type of trip has a very SPECIFIC TACKLE REQUIREMENT LIST! Halfway Ledge trips use Pulley LITE tackle. Please refer to our tackle page and be sure you have the ability to obtain ALL the required gear before making your reservation. Rental gear is not available and this specific list is truly required to succeed on a trip like this.
