Pulling the Trigger on some good fish!

The Catch
King Mackerel (Kingfish)
Snapper (Red)
Triggerfish (Gray)

A great day for fishing on the Jus Cuz this morning. Light winds and fair seas afforded for a variety of fishing today. Starting out trolling we managed a few King mackerel before beginning our bottom fishing pursuit of Triggerfish and amberjack.
We ended up hooking up to several amberjack before finally hooking a legal size fish. Amberjack have to be 34"s before you can keep them. Unfortunately, a bull shark got to the fish before we could bring him to gaff and left us with nothing but the head of the fish. After another fish was also eaten we decided not to continue feeding the Sharks.
Not to worry though! We moved to another area and found a great bite of triggers to make it an awesome trip. They were a large grade of fish which filled gallon ziplocks for our customers to take home and enjoy!
To end the day we hooked and caught a 25# or so King mackerel about 1 Mike from the Perdido Pass Sea Bouy!

Thanks to the Scott and Corey and their kids for choosing the Jus Cuz!
