Sunday afternoon - 50 ft Gags, Hogs, Mangos

Beautiful weather Sunday .  Late start and finding bait was challenging. Finally ran across a school in 40 ft -  sardines, cigars, few squirrels. Found 4 triple tail under a nearby buoy .  1 was probably the biggest i've seen out here - of course he wouldn't bite live shrimp or small cigar.. caught the small ones and left.
Then  ran across large bonita schools gorging on fry baits - let the kids catch 3 for bait.
Hit the same area as last week. New moon, Strong tides made us work. We caught lots of fish in the 20-23 range. Managed 7 keepers - largest 2 were on cut bonita.  By 4 the tide and current lined up nice for a mango bite.. Moved in and the rocks were covered up in the fry baits - put out the chum bags and bite was on. Just free lined chunks back - picked up a nice gag this way
Hudson got  a big ARS in 50ft
8 gags
2 hogs
14 mangos
