MIDDLE GROUNDS OFFSHORE OVER NITE TRIP

Bait: sardines, thread fin hering, live pin & pig fish

Left the dock around 10:30 am Sunday, with 2-4 ft sea and a 15 kt west wind, it was alittle rough, but we made the 80 mile run in about 3.5 hrs.

1st stop at a wreck, was on fire, amber jacks and grouper, lost some real big fish then the sharks moved in, so we moved on.

Next was some vermilion snapper, mango snapper and porgies, bite was a little slow in afternoon.

Next went to our nite time spot, cooked dinner, got lites all set up, and started fishin. The maongo?s were on fire and red grouper, then red snapper moved in and you could barely get your line down without them snatchin your rod out of your hand.

By 2 am we were limited out on, red snapper & mangos and went to sleep.

Woke up, hit another wreck, and wham, nothing but 20 plus lb red grouper, in 15 minutes we were limited out.

9 am headed back to the dock.

We caught 3 keeper amber jacks ( 40lb each) , 8 red snaper, 32 mangos, 30 vermilon snapper, 8 red grouper, some trigger fish and porgies. Plus we must of thrown back 30 keeper red snaper and red grouper, remember their being over fished! Ya rite.
