Today’s trip was scheduled to be a 12 hour Red Grouper day. But due to the high winds and weather conditions, Captain Rich opted to make this a “Gag Permit” trip with one tag per person.

This is the beauty and flexibility of this program that makes the Gulfstar a big supporter.

Instead of fighting the elements, we had the option to change the entire game plan at the last minute and kept our passengers safe and comfortable closer to shore. To be able to have that choice is beneficial to all.


We were  in about 20 to 25 feet of water. The fishing was great throughout the day, but proved to show more action later in the afternoon after the winds subsided a bit.


Loads of Grunt and Gags were caught. Many monsters were broke off and lots of nice size Grouper had to be set free due to everyone limiting out. Twenty three passengers came home with twenty three Gags to show at the dock.

Tim went home with the jackpot fish and the prize money.


I was talking to Captain Mitch on his way in, and when I asked about my favorite topic..the  dolphins, he laughed and said “they must of heard your voice, because they just showed up” 🙂


The day turned out to be another successful one.  Thanks to Captain, crew and passengers!
