    Kayak surf launch for the first time in a while. Got out at first light. Found a few small calicos and macks on the way out then found a nice school of sand bass. Vertical jigging a 2 oz promar ahi deception jig got bit almost every drop. Ranged from just short to a few legals. Hooked something really solid feeling, was deep bent with a 8’ mh Phenix m1 and a tranx 200, taking my time and gaining a little at a time. Was surprised to find it was a foul hooked triggerfish. Never caught one before but I think it might be a pretty decent sized one. Going to try to make some ceviche later based on what I’ve read after a forum search on the species. Anyway was a nice day with a few fun fish. All fish were on the jigs today, nothing on swimbaits or dropper loop mack.

    That thing is round! Got a few in Mexico that were turned into ceviche for us, very delicious. If it’s not to late, can you take a photo of the fillet? Thanks

    not the best job, but first crack at a triggerfish.
