Default Nice African Pompano

So I took a few friends of mine out the other day to unwind and the bastards outfished me by a mile... Happens every time I take 'em out!



I had no clue that the official Florida all tackle record was 41.44 lbs. This guy weighed in around 35. Not too shabby!

Congrats... that's a monster AP. Good on the grill too. What did you get him on?

Slammer congrats! There have been a couple over 40 landed out of Jupiter this week. The rumor is that one would have been a record but he didn't know it until the fish had been filleted.

Got him on a dead sardine on a knocker rig. Chris thought he hooked ground at first till he started getting some line back!

Quite possibly. I threw some of that guy on the grill later that night. Some of the best fish in the ocean, IMHO, although I've heard that you run the risk of ciguatera poison if you eat the big ones. This guy tasted just fine....so far so good.
