Hogs and sheep

I took three fellow club members offshore yesterday in search of Hogfish. After a fruitless first stop, moved a mile or so and started marking fish. Dropped the hook and before we moved again we managed 13 hogs ( only 2 keepers) a half dozen porgys, a bunch of grunts (kept only the larger ones) and an AJ which was also released. Ran back in and started to target sheephead. Managed 8 or 10 of these, with several hitting the cooler. Mixed in with the sheephead were a half dozen or so gag grouper which put up a hell of a fight in 30' of water on tackle designed for sheephead. Lots of pulling caused sore arms.
