The AJ's near Suwannee Florida are starting to go reproductive, so the testes (male sex organ) and ovaries (the female naughty bits) are getting large. Anyone else seen ripening fish? I am just trying to find out the differences in time and duration of spawning in the different parts of the Gulf of Mexico and would really be in your debt if you clean your AJs and happen to see that they are getting ready to spawn. Thnks
We are seeing baby aj's all over the place off of Suwannee. They look like rudderfish when small (white with lots of wide black vertical stripes) and anywhere from an inch to 7 inches in length. They are coming up under the boat when we stop to catch bait or fish. Also they are around all the crab trap lines. Anyone else seeing these guys? I am just trying to find out if they spawned this well accross the Gulf of Mexico. I have never seen so many.
