We must have caught thirty kings from eight to fifteen pounds in a morning's fishing. The bite was as fast as you could get a bait into the water. We were fishing in forty foot of water due west of Anna Maria on a artificial reef. Live pilchards on a 2/0 hook with a trace of light wire was doing the trick. In the afternoon we fished the mouth of the Manatee river and caught eight keeper trout up to twenty inches.
 
 
 
Good Fishing!
