Well, with the gag grouper season closing this week, the thousands of big gags out there will be safe for another year.
Saturday, November 12th, was a rough trip, cold, windy and 3-6 foot seas, the bite was slow but there were good red grouper & gag grouper in 45 to 60 feet. We were/are even catching keeper red grouper in 30 feet of water this year. Large sea bass are in 25 to 30 feet as also and they make great table fare.
Sunday, November 13th, we had beautiful weather and the fish were on fire, we released plenty of keeper sized gags and plenty just short. We did best in 55 feet of water.
Remember, you’re now allowed four red grouper, even though gag grouper fishing will be closed. The Amberjacks have moved back in, go to structure or wrecks, use live bait or jigs and have all the fun you can stand.
