Made it out for 2 of 5 snapper days

Day one was Ponce- Day two was the Port. Way to many people. On day two U had two people drift and catch our anchor line and  one 42ft boat with quads strip 300 yards of line from our flat line. Not sure if it was one prop or two. 

Many throw backs


Flat Calm


Day One


Big fish


Day two for use started at 11pm. No pictures but sun rise produced many of boats


Then it grew


We had our limit but wanted to work fro some Mangos but ran around from this Spout




Got one Mahi on the flat line

    Good work.  I saw 2 differnet boats get other boats lines in there anchors yesterday.   A lot of people don’t realize how much there line drifts .    6 oz was not enough to hold bottom Saturday when the current was moving.  Especially when u drift past an anchored boat.

    This is just one of the problems / issues with a "Derby" type season.
    The other that I see is that people will so some really stupid stuff like on Saturday with people running out straight into a lightning storm.

    Let people purchase (to cover cost of tag) a few hard tags that must be affixed to the fish's tail upon keeping...... ALA deer tags in other states and with the exception of spawning season...keep a couple fish whenever.
