was slow as it was the wrong tide for fishing, so rather than waiting
for a better tide, we went bugging instead. As luck would have it, we
found Grouper on the first two spots we visited. Couldn't ask for better
weather! Did have a surprise visit from a nice Cuda on 12# gear, so we'll have plenty of bait for tomorrow

Had to work at it but limited ocean side. Heading home tomorrow, hopefully the weather holds up for y’all!
If the Bahamians are paying for a whole fish by the pound I think they would get more editable filet off a whole barracuda versus a whole grouper. I often weight the carcass of a fish after I filet it and most heavily bodied fish like grouper only yield about half their total weigh in filet, and this includes the belly and throat.. Long slimmer fish like barracuda and mackerel seem to yield more editable filet from the total weight of the fish. The weight of the skin also plays into this ratio of filet vs the carcass..
