    Grouprer Diging with the kids 1/20/2013 CK

    With grouper season about to close we got the kids out one last time. Got to the ramp to find it empty on a sunday. Weird. Put in with a stiff 15 knt NE wind. Took our time getting to 60 ft but on the first spot we put 8 nice red grouper in the boat right off the bat. We were having some issues with the anchor holding in the 4 foot seas but after swithcing anchors that problem stopped. We moved around from spot to spot putting another 7 red grouper in the box and some real nice gags back in the water. The wind layed down about mid morning and just glassed out. Finshed the day at the barge catching just short AJ's on every drop on vertical jigs. My youngest son some how managed to put 100 grunts in the box behind our back. Cleaned fish for a solid 3 hours. I some how managed to turn my phone on airplane mode and killed my battery so I was not able to take pics on the water but did snap a few when we got back.

    Impressive haul for sure, that's a lot of grouper sandwiches and grunt chips too.

    I know the feeling. You'll be up to your neck in fillets though.
