Four of us headed out on Saturday to platforms. The seas were 1-2' but with a tight interval.

We caught:
13 keeper red snaps
1 lane snap
1 mangrove snap (11 lbs)
1 ling (42' total length)
3 kingfish on the flat line with ribbon fish
3 redfish
Also some random fish like chub and bluefish (one lost its body on the way up).

We saw/hooked a couple of large barracuda out there.

On Sunday the water was clearer and the seas laid down around 11. Three of us boxed:

12 red snapper and we boxed 10 mangrove snapper. Also got 1 undersized ling. Several of the mangroves were >5lb. The mangroves were very prolific around the platforms. You could have caught them all day on free lined sardine tails (the seem to stay on the hook better). Only challenge was keeping them off of the platform legs. Pic from Sunday is attached.
