Took a party of 5 out Saturday morning, for a?half day of fishing. Half?day trips are always in close, we pulled pin fish traps, had about 6 dozen, plus sardines, threadfin’s and cut grunt’s for bait.

Our?1st drop was in 26feet, on some rocks & live bottom, bite was good and picked up 3 keepers, some shorts and a couple nice sea bass.

The next drop, 3 more keepers, and the same. last drop , 4 keeepers and some more sea bass, all gag’s, no red grouper.

The water temp was 75-79 deg. obviously the red grouper are still deeper, but nice it’s?to catch keeper gags within 10 miles of the shore.

The fishin is only gonna get better and the sea bass should be turning on some as well. That’s todays report, till next time.

Good luck and tight lines
