Haha very tempted. Too bad it was a no fishing zone. Well that and the fact that they would break you off on the pilings in no time. Very cool to see them just swimming around. There was also a Goliath grouper down there but he was being shy,

Those are some beautiful fish!  Such a variety to catch.  I love the boxfish and cowfish.  I had a scrawled cowfish in my tank many many years ago.  It was the fish that lived the longest in my first saltwater fish only tank.  It lived over five years until I had a power outage that killed everything in the tank while I was away on vacation.  They have a ton of personality.

Thanks. Yeah the variety is amazing. Saw or caught 20-25 different species within a few hours. It is unreal down there.

Fun! I completely understand the head-cover when on the water in the Keys, but I still keep thinking it's the Invisible Man fishing with you, and not you. That Bandtail is a cutie.

Cool stuff! The diversity down there is exciting. It feels like you never know what you might see.
