Re: parrot fish and puffer fish
Cut the "fly" off a Sabiki rig (that little gold hook with the Mylar wings ) and splice the leader on to your fly leader . I've caught spiny puffers, Atlantic puffers, porkfish, mangrove snappers(grays) pinfish , Porgys and yellowtail snappers this way . When I'm in Islamorada beginning this Sunday I'll try it on the big Partots hanging by the dock. I'm sure it will work on them as well. I will let you know . Also I'll tell you how your sea trout spot worked out.
Try the Sabiki "Fly" it's great on all wrasses and bottom feeders in your area.

By the way those Parrotfish have a nasty set of front teeth. Caught one in Key
