Ended up catching over seven different species today and a fun day out in the Caribbean. Stayed less than a 1/4 mile out and in 90-100' range on the chum bag. Trigs were thick on the surface, but tough to get a good bite. Snagged a few flag yellowtails and even the muttons were coming up off the reefs to eat. Using 15lb braid/20lb flouro with a tiny #1 size hook. Pinch various weights of split shot to control the drop with the chum slick and current. Lost a few studs due to the super clear water requiring us to keep things light.

Buddy was out trolling around 5 miles out and in 1500'+ depths and snagged a 55 pound yellowfin and a good 'hoo.
