Ultra limited 8 pass Captain Jerry’s 4 day Mutton massacre and Carbo Crush Wednesday, Aug 26, 2014

Captain Jerry has been planning this trip for 2 years. He has extensively looked over an area 260 miles offshore from Tarpon Springs and has found spots that host Massive Mutton Snapper and unbelievably large Carborita black grouper. Because of its distance offshore and lack of fishing pressure this area produces lots of other fish like, Yellow-tail and Yellow-eye snapper, Scamp, Red, Gag and Yellow-fin grouper. Obviously because of the distance needed to travel, it will be a long boat ride on the way out…PLEASE only patient fisherman with offshore fishing experience should book this trip.

SALTDOME SEPTEMBER 3 day Salt dome Golden Tilefish & Deepwater Grouper– Thursday, Sept 10, 2015

September in the Gulf of Mexico is a great time to target the elusive Golden Tilefish at the Salt domes on 3 trips during the month. We will be fishing Very deep cold water as deep as 1700 feet. Electric reels with heavy rigs are a must. Please call and get specific tackle requirements before booking. We also catch large yellow-edge and Mystic grouper and Barrel fish. Trolling on the way out for Bonita is a must as they make awesome tilefish bait.

Tilefish grow up to 60 lbs. and for up to 50 yrs. old. Tilefish feed during the day on the bottom, eating shrimp, crabs, clams, snails, worms, anemones, and sea cucumbers. Monkfish, spiny dogfish, conger eels, large bottom-dwelling sharks (such as dusky and sandbar sharks), and other tilefish prey on juvenile tilefish. Tilefish, sometimes known as “the clown of the sea,” are colorful. They are iridescent blue-green on the back, with numerous spots of bright yellow and gold; their bellies are white, and their heads are rosy with blue under the eyes. Their pectoral fins are sepia-colored, and the edge of their anal fins is purplish-blue. The tilefish is easily distinguishable from other members of the family by its large flap (crest) on the head. Male tilefish can be distinguished from females by their larger crest

1. two day bag limit means up to 40 Tilefish per person
