Nice to get offshore

We ran out of Anclote on Saturday 02/20. Tons of Vermilion Snapper, some small ARS, a few nice Red Grouper, a couple nice Triggers, a couple Scamp, a bunch of short AJ's, some Almaco, and quite a few really nice Gags I hope to see again when they open. 0 Mangroves and 0 Lanes.

    Yea, similar, and kind of scary problem for me. Went to a few spots out in 105', 110;, and 120', all usually only hold mangos, and all were just completely loaded with ARS in the 18-24" range and gags from 24-30". Could NOT get a bait past them. I literally caught zero mango's on spots I usually limit out on. I mean, what happens if the ARS take over all my mango spots? I just don't fish for them anymore? Weird scenario for a species so endangered and over-fished...We did finally find some mango's in the 85' range but most of our day was shot and had no chance of a limit.
