Dragging between Kelly’s and Middle 6/17

Did a late afternoon fish between tip of Kelly’s and Middle Island near the green buoy. Most of the water we worked was 43-47” with a lot of bigger fish hanging near bottom but also some nice fish suspended that were scattered in area. We fished copper backed stinger spoons off dipsies .. seemed like black red and copper seemed to be best. It was a slow but steady pick and we ended up with 7 keepers (3 nice fish over 20 and 4 17”ers) and probably 15 shorts. Oddly the mid afternoon bite was best as we were getting into higher quality fish.. as the day went on we had less of them and more shorts. My guess is they moved into shallower waters to feed.
Tons of muddy water around PIB. We ran until we found clean water and then immediately found birds, including a few white pelicans. There were also some very annoying and seemingly dangerous gill/fishing nets set up in the area… always thought that was illegal in US waters but apparently I was wrong. If anyone has any insight, I’d love to hear it.

Beautiful day on water with some nice bags of fish to show for it.

Also found an Off Shore planar board that someone outfitted with a metal arm on our way home.. if anyone claims it, I’ll get it to you.

Tight lines to all.
