Way Out Offshore Report & Nice Fish

Headed about 90miles Southwest this weekend fishing the Offshore Rodeo Tournament on a SeaVee 390. We hit some of my numbers that I try to fish during red snapper season and hoped for the best. Light seas, winds and current allowed us to drift fish the entire day.

The boys had made a pile of live baits the day before, so we were able to head right out both wells blacked out with spots, gunts, squirrel fish and a few runners.

First area was covered in AJ's, but we were hoping to find a nice black grouper. After pounding through a couple dozen of them, we found black gold. A nice fat black hit the deck.

Continued working a square mile area of broken bottom and wound up with red snapper, mutton, 5 blacks, red grouper and released way too many AJ's for anyone's good.

Hit one deep wreck on the way home and landed a solid kingfish as a kicker fish. Ended up placing 2nd after the new world record black grouper was caught by Alex Newman.

Had a great time with awesome anglers on an incredible boat. Hope to to it again soon!
