Beautiful day Saturday so headed out with Skip, his wife Carmen and my son John. Boats everywhere.....experienced boaters and some yet to learn. Caught our 40 mingo, a File fish and an Almaco. Caught undersized AJ's. Sharks were out......saw a nice Hammerhead. Sherman Cove covered with boats when we came back. Time to give up being weekend warriors.

Congrats , dumb question what do you use for bait for Mingo's? I've never targeted them just got them fishing for snapper or triggers.

That mongo to the left of the can might have sucked down a few sips. Nice catch as always team Mongo.

Almaco and Trigger are very much alike only Almaco fillets are usually a little thicker. Love Almaco too.

# of gill rakers, depth and size.
Thanks! That helped. Then i also noticed in the fish rules app that on the picture of the fish sometimes you can swipe left or right and there are more pics of the fish. For t he greater AJ they show you the difference, very cool! Thx
