With our very light load of passengers, the Gulfstar departed around noon, although the skies were clear, the conditions were a bit different.

The first night and day of fishing was pretty rough. Captain Jerry was getting some wave action as he maneuvered the boat around from the top deck controls.

The fishing was incredible regardless of the bumpy weather. There was plenty of action. “Saturday was hot” reported one passenger.IMG_0048

Two beautiful Warsaw were boated. In the process, there was a pesky 300lb Mako shark snatching up fish left and right. Captain Jerry came up with a partial Grouper, while other passengers lost their ENTIRE fish. “we had him hooked for a few minutes” reported Captain Ron, but it just was not meant to be.

The depths of water ranged from 500-750 feet. Even though Dwayne said it felt more like 900 feet!IMG_0083

Speaking of Dwayne, he loaded up on Tilefish this time around. Like everyone else, the variety of species taken home was awesome and included: Tilefish, Yellowedge Grouper, Kiity mitchell ,Snowy Grouper Queen Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Mutton Snapper Porgies, Yellow tail, Amberjack , and of course the Warsaw Grouper.

“Randy” went home with the trifecta jackpot winning all three categories that included Snapper, Grouper and Amberjack.  And there were reports of Rubin getting his booty handed to him by the giant Amberjack that he boated.

Another fantastic trip!
