Weather on this trip was not the best. Had wind and seas to deal with throughout the trip. During the day it did finally let up and gave us a pretty nice day. We caught plenty of red snapper this trip which left a lot of regret with throwing back so many and only to leave with their 4 fish limit. We had the best gag grouper bite of the season so far with us landing around a dozen gags and a couple dozen Reds and some Scamps along with losing multiple others. Fishing started off slow on this trip, but ended strong. The Mango & Beeliner bite was off the charts as were the Red Porgy’s. We hated a couple of Bonito,s and Almaco Jacks and threw back a few illegal Triggerfish and a couple of Sharks. We had red snapper on this trip pushing 18-20lb and the gags upwards of 15-18lb. If you put your time in at the rail and paid attention on this trip you were definitely rewarded in the end with some very nice fish. The wind and tide conditions made anchoring tough, but we still prevailed in the end. Tight Lines! Capt Garrett
