The Catch
Grouper (Red)
Scup (Porgy)

Fast and fun action on the patch reefs in Key Largo. We used shrimp to catch the hogfish, red grouper, porgys, juvenile mutton snapper, and black grouper. I had the family use 12 and 15 pound spinning tackle. The red grouper was 12lbs with a fight of 10 minutes, and most of the hogfish were 1.5lbs. There were a lot of firsts for a family from Virginia, and I ended the day with recommending a local restaurant to cook their catch.
