The Mangrove snapper fishing has been so good lately we have had time to spend fishing live baits over wrecks for larger trophy fish. Recently we have boated several cobia in the 50-60 pound range and large smoker kingfish are also being caught in large numbers using this technique. Jewfish (Goliath Grouper) are feeding as hard as the snapper and can sometimes become a nuisance eating the fish you are catching.
For the folks who live to troll the fishing has been red hot. Limits of King and Spanish mackerel are being taken on trolled spoons and feathers. For those more patient we have anchored and chummed the fish to the boat and then caught them by casting bucktail jigs into the school. Often we are catching kings in the 30 pound range.
