12/27 rod bending fun
Picked up my party of 4 from Punta Rassa boat ramp at 7am. Grouper bight has been pretty solid in 60-65 ft the past few weeks so we headed out to some tried and true grounds to see what we could muster up. We found lots of grouper, but all on the small size. Along with them were lots of jolthead porgies. Im never one to turn down some porgies, and my clients had never tried them. The bight was steady, but the crew were after some bigger fish. Made the call to make a run 17 miles further out.
got to the area and marked some good fish. We boated a few yellowtail snapper and beeliners before Kelly broke the ice and put the first 22” red grouper in the box. She followed it up with another 22” keeper. Heck of a way to spend your birthday! Happy Birthday Kelly! Marty followed up with a nice 24” Grouper with his son Mike pulling in a 21” at the same time. Ended the day with a flurry and made the 40 mile ride back with nice calm seas.
