Grey Angelfish (Pomacanthus arcuatus)
I didn't catch an angelfish of my own, but I got plenty of other stuff!
Porkfish (Anisotremus virginicus)
Bandtail Puffer (Sphoeroides spengleri)
Spotted Trunkfish (Lactophrys bicaudalis) - new hook & line species #248
Ruoxi also got a spotted trunkfish. In fact, most of the people in our group caught at least one despite the fact that none of our group caught one at this location last year.
Blue Parrotfish (Scarus coeruleus)
Yellow Chub (Kyphosus incisor)
Dusky Damselfish (Stegastes adustus)
The cero mackerel was a surprise lifer. I dropped the sabiki near the concrete wall at the base of the bridge because I saw some angelfish feeding there. The cero hit one of the baits almost as soon as it hit the water!
Cero Mackerel (Scomberomorus regalis) - new hook & line species #249
Schoolmaster (Lutjanus apodus)
Doctorfish (Acanthurus chirurgus)
Either Terry or Kayla caught this tiny grouper.
Red Grouper (Epinephelus morio)
At this point I'm skipping ahead several days. We came back to Channel 5 to do some night fishing in hopes of finding some sharks. The sharks once again did not cooperate, but we caught some other fish to pass the time.
French Grunt (Haemulon flavolineatum) and Schoolmaster (Lutjanus apodus)
Once it was completely dark, I got out my spotlight and sight fished small fish in shallow water that was sheltered from the waves by some rubble. Nighttime microfishing paid off because I got two new species this way!
Notchtongue Goby (Bathygobius curacao) - new hook & line species #253
Night Sergeant (Abudefduf taurus) - new hook & line species #254
The last fish of the night was this mangrove snapper, which took a big piece of shrimp on a circle hook.
