Fishing with the Deutche family

| By Captain Jeff Shelar

Had a nice day out with Eddie and his family.

We caught a nice 46lb King Mackerel, and a decent sized Amberjack.

Eddie also caught a really nice Mutton Snapper near a wreck using a butterfly ballyhoo.

Butterfly Ballyhoo work great for Mutton Snapper. In case you don’t know how to do that here are the steps below!

  1. Prepare the ballyhoo: Rinse and dry the ballyhoo baitfish.
  2. Trim: Cut the tail, beak, and dorsal fin to desired length.
  3. Make the cut: Insert a sharp blade at the top of the backbone and run it down the body and through the tail, separating the meat from the spine. Repeat on the other side.
  4. Deboned (optional): Remove the backbone to let each half of the bait flutter in the current.
  5. Secure for use: Optionally, secure with a bait spring or rubber band before fishing.
