    Labor Day Weekend Groupers and Muttons !

    Mutton-Man, Chill and me fishing on Labor Day Weekend !

    I had been really anxious to do another trip with Benny (on my boat of course) and get some payback on those runaway trains I wasn’t able to stop last trip. Huge groupers and snappers I was hoping to target I told Benny. I wasn’t really interested in any yellowtail, Big Groupers or Muttons would be the intended target of the day.
    I attempted to invite a couple of Benny speculators in a thread I came across and thought maybe by offering to share with them some of the required info for finding and catching big fish on the bottom. How much chum or even if you should chum, leader strength, size, weights, knots etc… Long story short couldn’t find anyone interested in fishing in OT !
    I then asked myself where could I find anyone interested in fishing on here ? The fishing reports section ! That’s when I thought of Chil and sure enough one text later he was in . We planned to go to an area neither one of us had fished before and wanted to find some new spots.

    Long story short !
    3 Groupers Yellow, Red and short Black released
    4 Muttons
    4 YT
    and several fish lost that cut the line.

    So you wish to continue ?

    Funny how a few members are allowed to stalk, harrass, derail, curse and insult other members. Yet when anyone who stands up to them is then banned for questionable reasons ?

    HA Too bad you really don't fish. Just lurk !

    You should of accepted my offer of going out fishing ! Then you wouldn't be asking other members how to fish for Muttons.

    Thanks for letting us know it is your veggie time but honestly try drinking more milk !

    BTW, FYI I am no buddy of yours !

    Did you see this also ?

    However, if he is doing this and someone else pays to go along on the boat then he would be considered a charter.

    For example; Fisherman #1 hires him as a “consultant” on his boat and Fisherman #2 pays to go along fishing, then it would be considered a charter.

    *THIS IS ONLY FOR FEDERAL WATERS.

    I hope that helps and is not to confusing HA !.

    are you gonna pretend that you didn't call certain people out in your post? are you going to edit it? isn't this what you wanted since this report was already posted? not sure why you posted the NOAA stuff, but I would bet my left one that people in those boats have split the cost to hire your bud, so in my eyes, it's illegal. he has to hate when you guys do this stupid stuff. anyway, nice catch gordy.

    Then what you are saying is we are in Federal Waters when we fish in 50,60 and 80 feet ?

GMAFB. soon the FWC will make rules just to keep this type of business in check. if you notice I hadn't said one bad thing about him, but if you're gonna be his buddy and stick your foot in your mouth, so be it. he doesn't need your help, believe me.
