Outstanding video, if I may ask a question about the bottom your on. I noticed all the big fish, but I did not see any seabass or vermillion. Saw alot of big fish in the video, and I wouldn't want to be a small fish on the that rock ledge. Any chance of a video showing us air breathers what "live bottom" looks like? Thank You for the post, keep the videos and reports coming, you never know someone on here may sponser you.

Outstanding trip and video Robert! I watched it with my 12 year old and he’s pumped. Gotta love those Go Pro cameras. Thanks for taking the time to post that video-it’s a killer video.
I’ve got a 357 caliber bang stick I use for gators and I wonder how is the percussion underwater?

Thanks again...please post more pics of the catch on the boat or when you get home. I knew those bugs/grouper were big, but when we see them out of the water it really shows how big they really are.
oh yea...I've been lobstering in the Keys for years, never caught one remotely close to the size of the two pictured, to be honest, I wondered how in heck those big ones were caught. I know how strong the smaller ones are, and I've never seen one of those snares used. I thought they were used the snare the tails, I swear...LOL!!!
One more thing…how’s the adrenaline rush when you see a giant pair of tentacles sticking out from under a ledge?

Thank you Dr D for the insight of how my depth finder my be showing me the bottom and the video of how the fish orient themselves tothe structure!!
""Most live bottom has some sort of ledge on it. On the high side of the ledge is where there will be "hard" bottom, sometimes 20-40 feet of coral, sponges, etc. on the high side. The low side of ledges usually turn into sand.""
When you get light current do you find that the grouper position themselves on top of the ledge and during heavier current slid under the ledge to stay out? Have you had the chance to dive the offshore tower?
