Dr. Richard Wright from Lake City and his friend, Richard Wright from Jacksonville, trolling Stretch 30's and northern mackerel skirted with Bomber dusters, produced several nice size little tunny and a king mackerel in 30' of water. After trolling for a few hours they changed to vertical jigging with a Williamson high-speed lure at a favorite spot in 55' of water. On Dr. Wright's first drop of the jig he boated this 41' redfish. On the second drop, he hooked a Spanish mackerel that turned into a 7' lemon shark--and the fight was on. A great day on the water!

TIP OF THE WEEK
When you are bottom fishing don't forget to drop a Sabiki rig to the bottom. It will tell a lot about what is going on around your bait. Depending on what kind of bait is down there, you may get cut off by some Spanish or king mackerel. And it's a lot of fun if you get 3 Florida snapper on at one time!
