Finally, after nine days of being landlocked, we made a five hour trip out today.

The weather has not been our side lately, and with the past few cold fronts, the water was just as expected…MUDDY!

We departed at 11:00 AM and rode out for about an hour and a half. Fishing was better than expect though. Even with the bite being slow,many “throw back” groupers were caught and released throughout the day.

“Ron” from New Port Richey was out with us today along with his Grandson Will.

They had such a great time and were very delighted with their catch of over thirtyfive grunts or “grey snapper” and a nice bunch of Sea bass. They too landed a few “shortie” Red Grouper.

Overall, it turned out to be an OK day of fishing.  A decent amount of Grunt were unloaded with just as many Sea bass. And one GIANT Sailcat… Meow!  Or is it Gobble gobble?


By the way, no “boat shots” were taken on todays trip. And the dock photos were of just some of the Grunt & bass already cleaned. (click here)
