Targeting Hogfish
Hogfish are known for their bright orange, salmon color. They have a large, pig-like, snout and rooster like fins off the top of their heads. The average size ranges from 1 to 4 pounds. The Florida sate record is 19.5 pounds taken off Daytona Beach. For most who target Hogfish the bait of choice is shrimp. A spinning rig in the 20-30 pound class would be ideal.
