Mango and ARS roundup

We have been doing pretty good lately and very fortunate to make it out often for the ARS season.  Weatherwise, yesterday (Sunday) was much more pleasant 40 miles out than on land.  Occasional storms in the distance but light winds and smooth seas.  As mentioned in other posts the ARS have been harder to find as the season has progressed.  We encountered lots of predators and AJ's at spots with great shows.  100'-130' seemed to work out best and surprisingly drifting hard bottom with no fish shows produced our largest ARSs'.  Yesterday's tally was 2 ARS, 3 Mangos, AJ's, short red grouper, short gags, short ARS, sharks and huge cudas.

Last Wednesday's bonus catch....19 1/2" Mutton.  I probably should have cleaned her up first for the photo opp :D
