Offshore in 65ft off AMI

finally had a day off with school and work being so crazy so Capt Vern treated me to a trip.

started off at the 3 mile and sabiki'd up pins, blue runners, pig fish, name it

were going to run out to 100 or so in search of some big fire trucks but we found a bottom chunk we couldnt pass up. Several gag grouper in the large and larger range were caught. RGs got in the action as well with bringing 4 keepers home...between 20-23".

the highlight of the day was watching Vern struggle to bring in a MONSTER gag on light tackle only to have mr toothy nail it at the boat

here are a few pictures

    Send those in to Roy at the NMFS, of course he will just say they all died after release.

    been freediving some spots in 35-40' that are absolutely stacked with gags right now. too bad once the season opens they will attempt to scatter and hide deep :banghead
