Quick trip today with two of my favorite guys aboard. Mike and his dad wanted to catch some of the grouper and snappers which are close to the beach for dinner and well that turned out to be the right choice.
With a one Gag grouper per person limit, we were looking for White grunts to go with our grouper, that is where the problem started. After putting a pair of nice 18 pound gags on the box we went looking for Grunts and had to just keep releasing grouper 17 of them that would swim back down along with a pair of American Red snapper that are closed. we did manage a 40 grunt limit and had a nice ocean for the ride home. Used just one reel today, BX-500N they do alot of work on my boat between jigging and bottom fishing.
