Captain James and newbie 2nd Captain Alicia headed out into a gorgeous, calm and steamy Gulf of Mexico with the sold-out Fivestar and crew. The 1st night saw a decent pick of of Gag and Red Grouper as well as Mangrove Snapper. As the sun rose, the Fivestar made its way out to some deeper waters where our anglers saw some hot Scamp and Gag Grouper action with a few Red Grouper in the mix. The early evening stop was filled with non-stop ARS action with limits being met quickly and the “return to sea” game beginning. The rest of the evening was spent fishing through the Red Snapper with an excellent Mango bite, a nice Kingfish, more Gags, dozens of Porgies boated and 8 forbidden Amberjack released. Lane and Vermilion Snapper, Spanish Mackeral, a Lionfish and some huge Grunts rounded out the catch for this trip.
