Offshore Sarasota Superbowl Trip

Went offshore superbowl sunday with the intentions of catching a Mako but like always the weather man was wrong again, was suppose to be 10-15kts with 2-3ft seas but after hitting the 20 mile mark it was easy 4-5ft with a few 6 footers mixed in. So changed plans on the way out and decided to opt out of targeting a 200-400lb high jumping shark (a bit too dangerous in rough conditions) and go for some snapper and Ajs.

Ended up with a 20lb cobia, some nice 4-5lb mangs, some yellowtail snapper, b-liners, porgie, AJs in the 30-40lb class, oh and a african pompano.

Ran in around 2pm and made it home for the Bowl

    That's a great looking spread Tim. How deep are those aj's and what kind of fish is that red and yellow one?

    Curious how you target the makos. We caught one offshore near the long island wreck years ago. We thought it was a fluke. We got a few pics of it jumping it was pretty cool. Are they common this time of year?

    February and March is a good time to target them on this coast, there are more out there than you would think.

    Actually I have caught less yellowtail in the past year than I have in previous years, I used to get a a lot in that 30 mile range but not so much any more dont know why.
