George Poveromo's World of Saltwater Fishing
KEY WEST, FL KEYS – REBECCA SHOAL FLAG YELLOWTAIL & MUTTONS!
Rebecca Shoal exists some 40 miles west of Key West, in the Florida Keys. It’s a very diverse area, offering shallow ledges, rocks, wrecks and shoals. What’s more, it’s a short run due south to less-pressured Atlantic reefs and wrecks. In this thrilling episode, Poveromo teams up with local light tackle guide Captain Brad Nowicki to pursue mutton snapper around Rebecca Shoal proper, and then flag yellowtails just offshore. Beautiful weather made for a fast run here, aboard Poveromo’s MARC VI, a triple 350hp Mercury Verado powered Mako 334. The mutton bite was fast and exciting, surpassed only by flag yellowtail snapper which were live-chummed into surface feeding frenzies; Poveromo and Nowicki even caught big yellowtails on artificial lures! The beautiful Perry Hotel accommodated the Poveromo team, and the MARC VI.
