Well, after all the wind we had last week and a week of no fishing I was dying to get back out. The boat was relatively full with about 20 fairs and the night was cool and the seas were calm at about less than 3 ft. Our first stop at about 80 ft produced grovers and some nice yellowtails. Most were coming from the bottom. The captain decided to move and I really didn't understand why because fish were coming up from that spot. I guess the rest of the boat wasn't catching enough fish.
Second stop we dropped anchor but pulled up to move almost immediately because we had too much current and was hard to hold bottom. Even though some of us that was flatlining pulled in a few tails.
Our third stop we anchored at about 50 ft. It was on. Tail after tail and some decent Mangroves came up. Nice size tails too.One guy had a fish on I swore it was a shark or a huge Mutton, but when it came up it was the biggest Yellowtail I have ever seen. I caught my share of tails a few groves. George won the pool with a 5lbs Mutton and Jesus had a 3lb Mangrove.
There is a nice picture of the mangrove on the Sea Legs facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid ... 8958763138
