22 Sportfish bottom fishing

PostSat Jun 28, 2014 2:45 pm

The weatherman had it all wrong. Calling for 2 footers with a 10 second period and 5 to 10 winds. We hit the boat landing and noticed the river a little choppy and the blowing a little strong. Nothing to panic about and off we went. Clearing the jetties it got a little worse but we able to average about 20 mph. 11 pm we were 47 miles out and at our spot. It was too strong of a wind and current to drift fish, so we set the hook. During the night we picked at the vermillion and pinkies, daylight turned on the trigger bite. We caught a nice box or two and started back about 2:00 pm in some of the nastiest ocean I have ever fished in. The boat handled it fine for a ride her size and we all had a blast. Would love to do it again under ideal conditions!

Nice! How good are those trigger fish? How hard to clean? I have caught them just like that but I throw them back.

You are throwing away one of the best tasting fish in the ocean, in my opinion. They are better than grouper, red snapper and black sea bass. The flesh is white, sweet and very firm. Yes, they are hard to clean, as they have a very tough skin. You need a good sharp, and stiff fillet knife. Sometimes see them on the menu of very high end restaurants. When bottom fishing, we go deep to get away from the black sea bass and try to get our limit of triggers above all else! Once you taste them, you will never throw them away again. My favorite, pan fried triggers with a shrimp, capers and sun dried tomato sauce over your favorite pasta.

Good looking plate composition. Thanks for sharing & agree with the cleaning difficulties.
