Default Sunday 4/28 deep drop

Great day on the water. Got slick about 10:30. Found a little weed patch around 50 miles to SE of dauphin island. Nothing on it the few seconds we stayed and moved on to original destination. Never found blue water, even past the 1000’ mark it was green and kind of clear. Couldn’t find a spot the golden tiles weren’t biting though. From 650’ to over 1000’ and miles apart in between. We would catch 3 per drift line and move a few miles. Ended up with 14 over all. Vermillion were hot early along with the scamp. Got 3 of what look like a tile fish we caught in less than 300’ and I have never caught these before. Had a few guesses what kind it is but can’t make the definitive call on the fish in pic 2. Can anybody ID?

Good lord those are healthy mingos! I am guessing you caught them in the 300 foot of water you caught the mystery fish in. They kind of look like barrelfish. I have watched people cleaning them at the marina and they seem similar. Somebody will probably weigh in with the correct I.D.

Thanks. We did catch those with the vermillion. Not as many boats on the water as I thought there would be. Spring break weekend may have had something to do with it.
