I was out there a few years ago during the summer. We saw several tailing fish on day one. The mate would throw a dead bait out and the fish would eat it straight away. Then he'd put a live one a spinning rod and fling it out in front of the fish. They'd look but never bite.When I got back in that evening I was telling my wife about it (yawns) and she says, "Why didn't he put a dead one on the hook, then?" :doh I believe every charter boat in the area does the same thing and there were I don't know how many boats fishing that area day in and day out. Maybe they were just leader shy but I always wondered what if...????
