April 1st 75 miles

Ran out for opening grouper and got on the mangos something nice. See the 8#er. Had the ARS chummed up from 200'. Folks these bastards have doubled in size. It's almost like they know they get a free pass. Some sort of hope and change I guess.... $1000 in fuel, couple of fish, day on the water, priceless....Life is good.

    Sure was a good trip for the last one in the Yellowfin Sid, glad you could make it. To bad we did not make it to 450', I wanted to get there so bad but the anoying swells just did not allow it. Some of those Red Snappers on the surface were over 20 lbs. Its sad what our govt has done to our fishing regulations.

    What does ARS stand for or is that what they're called.

    Are you saying goodbye to the Yellowfin, Lee? If so, you're always welcome to ride along in my canoe.

    Nice fish right there :thumbsup
    When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work, because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation!

    take care of him;
    better take a closer look at the American Indian."

    I figured red snapper but wasn't sure of the A. How far out would you have to go to catch fish like that. Never done offshore only bays. I got a 23 ft ranger bay, can I go out there with that or no. New to this if you cant tell.

    Pretty much where they were 75 mi., However you can certainly catch ARS Mangos and whatever else in 60, 90,etc. feet of water, which is a decent run offshore. Read this thread that was recently posted regarding offshore and your boat.
