Moving around to different spots throughout the day, Capt. Chris Trosset anchored us over live bottom in about 50 feet of water that afternoon. Dropping down live-bait rigs that mimic a bass angler's dropshot rig, we caught the attention of plenty of mutton snapper. Most of the snapper were shorts, but a couple were long enough to ice in the cooler. Besides muttons, our boatful of anglers caught porgies, false albacore, jacks, grouper and snapper from the sea-fan bottom. Reef fishing off Key West offers mixed-bag catches that all can enjoy.
