The Elusive Hogfish!

Trip Info


People used to be and some are still under the impression that the Hogfish could not be caught with a rod and reel. My customers have been successfully targeting hogfish for over five years now. I believe the cooler months are the easiest to catch them, but they can be caught year round. They are a blast to catch and even better to eat. We also target grouper, snapper, and other species as well while hog fishing.
