With the weather finally settling down, anglers are looking to point their boats west into the Gulf of Mexico in search of fish for the dinner table.
Unfortunately, many popular targets are out of season like amberjack, gag grouper, red snapper and triggerfish. Beyond 20 fathoms, other grouper species like red, black and scamp are also closed.
As a result, most anglers have changed their target species, and what’s hot now is hogfish.
