Thanks, you are right about the variety of fish these days. Florida has been strictly regulating their bottom fish species. There are smaller daily creel limits with bigger minimum sizes. They are both good and bad. The bad part is that all of the charter boat captains are having a bigger struggle to find people to go because it is not necessarily worth the high prices to not come back with many fish. The good part is that there are more red snapper, grouper, and other prized bottom species than there were before. It makes fishing down there a little more fun than it already is. As for the Bonita, they were a blast! Great runs, dives, and we even got a few jumps out of one of them. It was also cool that is was all sight fishing.
