Killer Bait for Huge Gags
6 AM Thursday morning, the Florida Fisherman II returns with another mountain of fish and some 'killer bait' suggestions that really work.  
First up the American Red Snapper
When you approach the 200 foot depth and beyond the Red Snapper bite can be very strong. 
A 'Killer bait' for ARS has proven to be Bonito:

Looking Good:

Looking even better:

The Red Grouper grow big out here:

    Now... Let's talk about a, 'Killer bait for huge Gags.'

    This 47 pound Gag Grouper was caught on octopus:

    After landing the 47 pound Gag the very same octopus was used again; results, a 23 pound Gag Grouper. 
     47 & 23 pound Gags caught on the same octopus...
    Talk about a 'Killer Bait!' 
    Don't know if this strange looking creature would be a 'killer' bait or not:

    What do you think?
    Our next fish requires no thought. 
    With no closed season, a challenge to catch, and excellent on the dinner table, the elusive Mangrove Snapper is a real winner that will put a big smile on anyone's face:

    It's getting late:

    Back at the dock:

    The Gag sticking his head out of the cooler is the 23 pound beauty caught using the same octopus for bait.
    Talk about, 'A killer bait for huge Gags!'

    Hmmm.  Grouper yesterday was selling at Publix for $32.98/#.  Makes it a easier to explain to the wife why we go fishing.
