BIG Red Grouper and more
Headed offshore with repeat clients to bend some rods. We headed out to 100 ft of water where the first line down resulted in a keeper grouper. Second line down resulted in a nice lane snapper. The bite then completely shut off. We had a few cutoffs which tells me there was a large shark most likely scaring the grouper and snapper from eating.
We moved to another spot a few miles away in 95 ft. We scored a monster red grouper as well as a second beautiful red grouper. We caught and released several short red grouper as well. The seas were a bit like a washing machine, and the group wasn’t feeling so well (those who took their sea sick pills or patches were fine) so we started heading back in.
On the way in, I came across a show on the screen that was too good to pass up. We had a few quick drifts which resulted in another keeper red grouper as well as a handful of keeper lane snapper, key west grunts, and lots of throwback size red grouper.
The action here was fast and furious with all 6 fisherman getting hooked up at the same time on multiple occassions.
I was thoroughly impressed with our youngest passenger, a 6 year old who held up better than everyone. He didn’t get sick, and did a heck of a job reeling in his first fish as well as countless others.
