Default New Fish

I'm looking for some new fish to catch and I'm interested in what everyone would suggest. I have a 19ft boat and we usually don't go past 20 miles out. I catch all the usual (snapper, mingo, kings, triggers, and AJs), but I would like to catch some grouper and anything else out of the realm I always catch. Don't get me wrong, I like to catch all these but I'm interested in catching some new fish.

I posted on here and you guys helped me to add triggers and AJs to my usual list and so now I'm asking to see if anyone has any tips or suggestions to broaden my catch.

Thanks! I'm sure this will help more than just me.

I'm in the same boat as you as far as needing advice etc, but have you thought about doing some shark fishing around the pass? That would be exciting.

What kind of 19 foot boat do you have?

Looking at your list, I'd vary up the type of fishing you do.

Option 1. Go after fish that are better biting at night! Nothing like hammering those big black snappers at night, plus all kinds of other interesting fish come out to play and it sets you up for a great morning bite as well. If you do it right, you'll leave with the sun going down and come back before it gets too hot and not have to worry about anyone bothering you.

Option 2. Catch the flounder bug! I've got an 18' Sea Pro and fish specifically for flounder. It's a whole different kind of fishing than bottom fishing. YOu start the day throwing a cast net for some finger mullet. Fish with the same rigs you use bottom fishing, just dial it down a notch in test. It's a totally different "bite" to master and gets addictive. Plus it's better eating than many of the fish listed above in my opinion. After getting the hang of it with rod n reel you can try moving to gigging them for a whole different experience.

Thank you sir! I'll have to try it.
