Couldn't let one of those rare flat calm December days pass me by. Went out to 35 miles. Plenty of big red grouper (no, I didn't keep 'em.) I was looking for big snaps at some of my usual places but couldn't get past the grouper. I did manage some small mangos. The one snapper that felt pretty big was snatched off my hook by something bigger. Found some bigger lanes in 80 ft. Great day, though.
