The reef and wreck bite is one of our staples here in the Florida Keys because it’s usually always good! Probably one of our most productive forms of fishing , chumming the reef. What this entails is we use our chart plotter and bottom machines to find our ledges or patches of reef that have large quantities of fish on them. The primary species that we target are snapper and grouper. Yellowtail snapper being the most common catch. These fish average 12-18 inches just south of Key West and the larger fish can be anywhere from 20-28 inches. They are a schooling fish that will come up from the reef in masses to eat the chum from the back of the boat. We use light spinning rods with 12 pound test line for these fish and we primarily use a tactic called free-lining. Free-lining consists of a small hook on a 15-20 pound leader baited with either a live shrimp, or a chunk of dead bait (ballyhoo, squid, etc.). The idea is to imitate the chum.
