    SGI 5/21-26 fishing report

    Quick report on a week @SGI with family- and collage kids - who think 6:00 am is time to go to bed- not fish.
    Monday's keepers: 1 gag, 1 red grouper, 1 cobia @ 36", 5 mangos @ average 22".
    Tuesdays keepers: 5 mangos and one throw back mention-ARS @ near 28"
    Wednesday keepers: 1 cobia @ 3' , 3 mangos @ 20" average, 3 flounder and a 34" AJ
    Thursday's keepers: first day out with kids- 2 lane snapper, 2 nice triggers, some black bass-one of my favorites- 1 king at 30" and 2 lost at boat at 40" plus (thanks goodness- we are not eating those)
    Friday: Gags- 2 in the box, 6 more legal released- moved just to stop the pain of releasing them, add 5 more 22" plus mangos
    Saturday: real short trip- 8 mangos, daughter hooked up with a 6' hammerhead, brought it to the boat- not in. Back inside the cut by 10:00 am

    A great week of fishing for sure. Those mangos eat as good as reds IMO. Thanks for sharing.

    You certainly had an active week, with some good sport.
    Any picture showing the sun over the Gulf is a good picture.

    I think Mangos are as good if not better. What type bait were you using? Nice mess of fish.

    Pilchers- Saturday they got all fired up and came up to boat. Boat was surrounded by mangos and little AJs, watching them grab the bait is too much fun.
