Weather has been really tough to make our regular scheduled offshore fishing runs. However, we know right now the red grouper bite is pretty darn good this past week around 100-120ft to the South west of our area. We have also seen lots of nice mangrove snapper mixed in, but the mangroves are definitely biting better a little beyond that 20 fathom (120 foot of water) grouper closure line. We have seen some nice vermillion snapper, a few yellowtail snapper and lots of porgies around this depth range too. Plus, the blackfin tuna action has been really good lately and were hoping for more of the same on the backside of this bad weather. Plus, the exciting news is that we have triggerfish opening up March first!
Hungry Fish Nearshore
The fish were hungry and waiting for us to return at the start of the week. Later this past week we faced rough weather Thursday due to the front and the Tuesday all day had a little slower bite than we would have liked but we still caught some great fish.
