The Catch
Triggerfish (Gray)

The bite today was RED HOT!  The Amberjack were smashing baits on top today and we managed to land a 36” fork length on a 30# spinning rod!  We released several more keeper sized Jacks before hooking an unknown monster and fighting it for almost 20 minutes before we lost it… We then moved a little to the East and started fishing for “Banjos” (Big Triggers)...after catching our first or the day a couple of Cobias showed up and the chaos started.  We hooked two but as luck would have it we pulled the hook on both of them.  After catching and releasing several Red Snappers we called it a morning and headed in.  I know my customer Jeff will sleep well tonight and his body will be sore for a day or two after going toe to toe with some of the toughest fish in the Gulf!
