Personal Best Hogfish
My wife and I went out Saturday to initiate our "new to us" boat. I didn't do very well throwing for live bait, but I had brought some squid, sardines and some leftover shrimp I had thrown in the freezer. We found a decent spot and started pulling some porgies, big grunt, lane snapper, mangos, even catching some endangered ARS. After a while I dropped a knocker with a frozen shrimp and felt a nice little tug which quickly turned into a drag pulling fight, finally landing my biggest hogfish to date....a whopping 9.87lbs. God is good, it was a beautiful day to be on the Gulf.
