Captain Mitch headed up this trip that was bound to the Middle Grounds. The weather forecast called for much less of a sea than what our bunch experienced.
It was bumpy trip and fishing was on the picky side. Fish were slowly brought in though most of the consistent action was in the last few hours.
The depths that were fished in varied from 120-190 feet. “Capt. Mitch really worked his tail off trying to get us some fish” commented one man.
“A very hard working crew” reported another.
Many nice Gags were caught as well as a few shy of the limit of Red Snapper allotted for the boat. An abundance of Mangrove Snapper, some beautiful Mackerel and lots of Porgies and Vermillion Snapper.
Bill went home with the Jackpot for Largest Mangrove Snapper. He was cheered on by his close friend Rubin who will be joining him on his boat next year!
Despite the weather, everyone persevered and had a great trip
