Sea Bass and Grunts are plentiful in 28–32 feet of water on live bait in hard bottom area’s.

There are plenty of short and keeper size Gag Grouper in 35-45 ft of water and soon, Sept. 16th they will be open in Federal Waters. Which, in 50 to 70 ft there are plenty of keeper Red Grouper and Gag’s.

Amberjack’s are open again and are plenty thick around the barge and bridge wrecks.

We have also caught 3 keeper Cobia while Grouper fishing in 50 plus water, so if you go have a rod ready because the opportunity will happen fast and you don’t want to miss it. I haven’t seen any Kings lately, but I believe they’ll be back soon.


Till next time, tight lines and safe boating
