Beautiful Day on the Water

The Catch
Snapper (Red)
Snapper (Vermilion)
Triggerfish (Gray)

My group today came in from Branson, Missouri.  The day started out at 6:30 at the dock.  As we motored under the Brooks Bridge the sun was just coming up over the condos in Destin.  Of course we had to take some nice pics of the beautiful orange orb in the sky.  We made it to the Destin Pass and there were no bait boats out so we had to catch some live bait for our trip.  At the first buoy we were able to pick up some hard tails and some cigar minnows.  We stayed in State waters today but traveled 17 miles to the East.

Of course we count the first fish, the most fish and the largest fish.  One angler, who had never been out on a deep sea fishing trip, happened to luck out and get both of the biggest fish.  Everyone had a great time catching triggers, vermillion snapper, amberjack and triggers.  Too bad the season was closed for amberjacks and triggers!!!

Everyone had a great time and enjoyed being out on the water on this beautiful day.
