Re: Mayport Vis report

thanks for the report. Only about 5 feet of vis inshore. Ended up just bottom fishing for the day. It must have been a total fluke or my superb fishing skills that we caught 50+ of the elusive ARS. We kept having to move to try and catch a different species. I believe their over population now is having a negative effect on our reefs. We do not catch the grunts and black sea bass like we used to. Fishing has gone from catching nothing but the small bait robbers to nothing but 10 pound plus Snapper. I wish some common sense regulations would be considered.

Re: Mayport Vis report

Kingfisher, how far did you make it offshore? I certainly share your concerns with the over population of ARS; we have two commercial boats targeting b-liners at this time, we are having to go to 140ft or better trying to get away from them. I believe they are more a concern than Lion fish now.
