Well my summer fishing season is almost over because I'm moving to take a new position within the company I work for.

It has been a good summer!

Most of our trips are fishing for mangroves and then misc fish after that is over.Mangroves fishing is my favorite. Over the last 6-7 years we honed a nice technique to catch em'. Now that we started jigging the action is non-stop! We fish for mangroves until our live bait runs out (which is really really quick once on a good bite). Then we jig for our limit's of red snapper and other fish. It's been fun fishing! Here's a few pictures of recent trips:

Me with a jigged up red

wow...I'm amazed at how big the Mangroves get in the Gulf. I could spend all day pulling on those things. Love catching them....love eating them!

Why is it a Ling and not a Cobia?

I have always heard them called lemons or lemon fish in the Fla panhandle area... They tend to be Cobes when you get to Ala...

They are called shark the first time many people see them swimming. LOL

Nice pictures there gmack. Thanks for sharing. I hope that the new responsibilities do not keep you from fishing too mych.
