Me and a buddy headed down to Morehead this weekend to fish with Brickphil. We'd been planning the trip for a while and were glad the weather did its job haha. Pretty smooth ride out and we got to our first spot right around 120' FOW. Started wearing out the Ajs on the jig and got an almaco as well, sharks became a problem and my buddy caught a grown one in the 175-200# class. Headed to a new spot and found a ledge absolutely covered in silver snapper(porgies) Just about limited out there. Nice cobia followed up one of the snappers and I was able to convince him that he needed to join the party, few minutes later he met the steel. We had a great day and a lot of fun, very strange day on the bottom though. Only caught 3 keeper black bass, no grunts triggers or beeliners, and Mr. Grouper only made an appearance once to rock up Phil's son. Still put a ton of meat in the box without the usual suspects. Thanks again Phil can't wait till next time!

That sounds good I will probably give them a shot on Tuesday and maybe get lucky.
I really am convinced they are here inshore! Fail same method when they are, but not in huge #'s. Bottom fish for them. Drop a chum bag/small home made wooden box with chum in it because of sharks, down half the depth you are anchored in. And drop a dead menhaden on the bottom. And you will brighten your chances of hooking up!

Good luck

Thanks for the advice. I was going to try bottom fishing for them and ones around. I hope the weather cooperates.
