Do to morning rainstorms we had to wait at the dock for around 45 minutes before heading out. Cleared the pass to find seas not as forecasted which meant a slow ride out. Pulled up to the first platform and a large Ling is on top and we weren't fast enough getting a bait in and he went down. Tried for about 20 minutes to get it back up but the Ling wouldn't play. Off to the next rigs looking for Mangrove snapper. Got to the platform and the action was fast and furious until they got wise to us. Broke off some big ones in the rig but that is expected in this game. Hopped rigs all day catching mangrove and ended the day with 30 ranging from 2-10 lbs. Everyone had a good time and took home lots of fillets.
