Hard to sort thru the shorts - offshore 6/19

It was a long hard day offshore but it resulted in a limit of snapper, a half dozen or so mangos, a couple scamp, a big flag tail and surprise flounder out of 135'.

Had to sort thru a bunch of short snapps, but managed to complete the limit with all legal ones

    jack i see the flounder there, we took raised a 22incher from 100ft saturday. I have never caught a flounder like that offshore in my 20 years of grouper diggin in the gulf. Is this a seasonal thing or just me getting better at billdancing them to the boat? :)

    Way to fill the box Jack.
    THERE SHOULD BE NO COMMERCIAL FISHING ALLOWED FOR ANY SPECIES THAT IS CONSIDERED OVERFISHED.

    Very nice catch. That is an awesome filet table. Do the scraps drop into the water?

    Filet table is at Loggerhead Marina, St Pete. Center (covered with round stainless disk) has a maserator that grind the heads/scraps and puts them back into water, but in fine pieces so as to not float and stink. I've had it grind up the head of a 45# cobia, but, on this day, maserator was broken so we poked the eyeballs and dropped heads and scraps over into the water

    It would be cool if you could somehow collect the ground up stuff to use later as chum. Really cool set up. The hoses remind me off when I washed dishes at Moores Stonecrab back in the day.

    I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you
