Wavey Week

July 07, 2016 by Bill Albanese

Trip Info


The week started out with high waves but we had a few charters that wanted to tough it out and go fishing anyway.  All week long we were catching red snapper and plenty of amberjack that had to be released.  We also had lots of king mackerel biting off hook, line and sinker as we were rigged for red snapper.  The fishing was rough but good with plenty of fighters.  The fishermen and women braving the waves this week were ready for fights so that was awesome.  The biggest catch of the week would have been a huge grouper that one of my anglers fought picture grouper perfect and was cheated at the last moments by a big greedy hungry shark who bit 3/4 of that grouper in one big chomp.
