Fished with the Mike's on Saturday. We started out sight fishing on the flats. We caught and released five lemon sharks and a bonnet head shark. The big shorts up to about 70 pounds. We had quite a few shots. We also caught snappers, jacks, grouper, look downs, and even a bluefish. We had a lot of action all day. Pro Tip: The higher in the water column fish are on the flats the more likely they are to eat. Hi and happy is what we call it. When the fish are along the bottom there are less likely to eat. Who knows why this is but their body language and desire to eat is completely different.
