We headed out of the Florida Gulf Coast town of Cedar Key to a depth of about 50 ft for our 1st stop, seas were rough, the tide was strong andthe wind and the bite were good and steady all day. Every stop we made produced both gag grouper and red grouper, plus our famous Cedar Key Snapper ( grunts).

We moved around to about 4 stops, ranging from 50 to 58 ft. Five guy’s ended up with 7 keepers and about 50 shorts. It was the Not bad for the Offshore Special, all had fun and hopefully the bite should increase as water temps drop and the grouper should be moving in closer within the next month, till next time, tight lines and safe boating.

Good luck and tight lines
