Default Destin 8/12 - Snapper and Triggerfish

Headed out to rougher than expected surf today behind The Back Porch in Destin and got a nice soaking on the launch, but conditions eased up throughout the morning and especially once I got a ways out. Jumped around spots in the Urchin complex (my Lowrance Elite 7TI really kicked ass for this) and put some fish in the kayak including my new PB red snapper. Came in right at 24 inches long. Almost took the rod out of my hands on the drop. Caught a mess of short ones too and plenty of good sized triggerfish.

All fish caught on a knocker rig (1 ounce sinker and 5/0 2x circle hook) with squid. Used a 3000 sized reel on a 7'0 medium heavy rod. 30 lb. braid and 30 lb. flurocarbon. Made for awesome fights on all fish and really allowed me to feel all the bites.

Sorry for subpar pics. Forgot the gopro today.
