Summary

It was a beautiful day on the water with light winds and calm seas.  We started off fishing a couple rigs with some success.  We had most of our success on a small hump where we caught consitant kings on the surface while bottom fishing for some state water snapper.  We took advantage of a couple schools of Spanish Mackerel and landed a number of them on very light tackle.
