Default Offshore report 5/17 - Bottom bumpin

Headed offshore early today despite some chop. Got a few live baits at the pass and headed out. Got to the spot and the AJs were biting well. Got 2 keepers there and later moved to another spot. Got 3 more keepers there and had lots of triple and quadruple hookups. Most fish were caught on vertical jigs and lazer tails. Also caught a 13-14 pound bonita on the trip...a personal record! :letsdrink

Heres some pics...

Nice AJ's. The pics look like it was pretty smooth out there. How far out did you go?

Did you try for any snaps in state waters?

Oh did I mention nice boat.

Sorry, no pics of the bonita. Camera was out of batteries at the time :banghead. The bonita ate a 6 inch mullet I put out for king bait.

We hit spots within 25 miles of the pass. We were pretty worn out after the AJs, didn't try for snapper inside.

We launched out of Destin around 11:00am--waited to see if the forecast winds were gonna come up. We took almost an hour to catch bait, and we got good-sized cigs, threadfins, herring, hardtails, sea bass, and lizardfish. We headed out to the Janet. The winds picked up when it switched from SE to SW, but we kept at it. We got our six red snappers up to about 22", and no throwbacks. My buddy did lose three good fish, but the captain got the biggest. lol Sorry no pics. There are a few of those endangered red snappers left in state waters. We were between 8-9 miles out in 90'.

You mean, there are sizes and colors the AJs won't eat?
