  • Closing out 2018- One last Grouper Trip

    we decided to push off later in the morning do to fog. One the water at sunrise. Nice ride out of Johns Pass

    Happy Captain

    Started catching Pin fish for hopes of large grouper

    The later start was due to fog conditions. This is what you call heading into the Obis. man radar would have been nice

    Started with some mangos and undersized gags

    Then some nice lane snappers and more grouper

    Did land one nice 22" scamp and 25" gag

    box was getting some nice color

    Nice sunset and ride in. Other then Fog in the AM is was a Blue Bird day

    Neighbors followed us out for a shake down cruise. Plenty of these ARS to go around

    baby flounder spit up by the grouper

    17 Snapper and 2 grouper. We had about 20 other assorted Porgies and grunts (Not pictured)

    Here is to a great close of 2018 and I look forward to 2019
