Nice Father & Son Grouper Day 12/28/16

Played hooky from work and took my son Justin out on my buddy Matt AKA Forum Member [The Shop ] boat for a little Grouper trip . We left the dock at 630 AM dead low tide to head out of Fort Myers Beach to the West of Sanibel .The seas were out of the North East 2' with 10 knot winds , made a bait stop in 60' of water and loaded up on pins, squirrel fish and spots . We had 6 people on board , Matts 3 friends from Indiana Justin and I . Headed out to the first Grouper spot in 118 feet of water and started a drift with all having a live bait down . We had four fish on at once with my son screaming for help as he was brought down to the gunnel . I step in and brought the first fish up for him and told him to gunnel fish and had to bring up his own fish from now on . Justin hook into another Grouper and I cheer him on , leave the rod on the gunnel and reel !!!!!!!!!!!!!! 20161228_093713.jpghis first keeper Grouper up .
