http://i217.photobucket.com/albums/cc111/swampytom/RIMG0011.jpg Coral Trout can be taken on inshore coral reefs. They are renowned as an excellent table fish with sweet white flesh.
Strong leader is required to prevent them busting you on the reef. The above specimen was taken with 60lb hard FC held up against the sharp coral.
Trolled hard bodies and soft plastics will fool coral trout.
