    I was an anchored close to the ledge. Used fresh caught Bonita, blue runners and Porgy! Frozen bait was used to catch the main bait. Unfortunately using chunks of fresh fish attract sharks also. It is just a numbers game and a game of attrition. Can you stand 3 break offs for every one nice snapper. Rig as usual, 6:1 ration reel 7 ft stiff snapper rod 60 lb braid, 6 oz egg sinker on main line 20 -30 ft 60lb Anderson leader with single #7 J hook.
