weird catch today
Had a really weird catch today. Was fishing off the dock at Shell Mound over by Cedar Key, using some fish bites on a 1/0 circle hook on the bottom w/ a 2oz weight.
Caught a grunt (4" or so) and a sand trout (13") at the same time, hooked together on their lips. Guess they were fighting over my bait and I got lucky with the hook set.
I've caught doubles before running two hooks (popano rig style) or when using a lure with multiple hooks (think Rapala like lure w/ multiple trebles hanging off it), but never before 2 fish on one standard hook.
