Great Job Guys!! I am gearing up for my 1st trip to the Tortugas next week with Fishquest Charters. I have been reading about the bait debate (get it). I fish in-shore a lot and net a ton of large mullet. I usually toss back what I do not use. Are large Mullet worthy of keeping and using in the Tortugas? We are going down the day before and are planning on fishing for Pinfish and what not to take out with us.
I also want to give a shout out to Flagtails for all the advice and info!:fishing
Leaving Florida... take a developer with you!

Gogs are a good "staple" bait, but not necessary, and not even the best in my opinion. Fresh bait is the key. You can use ballyhoo, pinfish, runners, mackerel, etc. If it's fresh and fished properly, it will work. Not to mention the myriad species you can catch out on the boat and save for bait. Don't break the bank getting gogs if you don't have to.

gogs are not overrated....the muttons will eat pretty much anything as long as you have it presented correctly and you fish correctly....i do find that gogs get a higher HIT:CATCH ratio....but at the end of the day, its presentation and fishing correctly

What's the best bait for the Sharpnose Sharks ? I was amazed how in touch my buddy was last trip with these prize predators, yet he wouldn't reveal the secret bait.

When they get thick, switch to squid, octopus, or even crab. Stay away from oily and bloody baitfish. You will have a higher chance of catching pinky to shark ratio. That's just a suggestion, take it or leave it.
