    thursday 11-15 offhsore - Bait, kings, cobia, mangos, sharks

    A few of us had the afternoon open so we headed out of clearwater. Marked bait as I was heading out of the pass , steve threw the net out the back and loaded us up with scaled sardines. Took 3 of us to bring it in, filled the well and 2 five gallon buckets - still had the deck covered.

    Next bait out slammed again and this one almost spooled my battle with 320 yds of 30lb power pro. I got this king. The boca grip was going between 38-42 lbs . We released him alive - good karma for KOB

    the kings were busting us up - we didn t us any wire - 30lb floro- mutu light 3/0

    Decide to head out to 70" get some snaps. We got 6 plus some gags, scamps, bar jacks, small AJs and lot of sharks. Had a bull crush an aj on the surface.

    Sounds like a great day of catching.
    THERE SHOULD BE NO COMMERCIAL FISHING ALLOWED FOR ANY SPECIES THAT IS CONSIDERED OVERFISHED.
