Went out solo on Sunday. Caught 3-4 keeper red grouper (could only keep 2) 8 miles out. Went out to 9 mile and a few more big red grouper and a smoker king. Probably 50-60 18-20" red grouper. Still trying to find the gags but too late now. Bait was cut ladyfish for the grouper and a live blue runner for the king.
I thought red grouper was closed until the end of the year.
Fishing beautiful Destin / Ft Walton Beach area!
