11/19/17 Offshore Sanibel

Headed out from Redfish Pass looking for a good grouper bite. First drop was in 75 ft of water. TONS of short red grouper to 19.75 of an inch. Mixed in were some quality lane snapper and jolthead porgies. John hooks into a good one and first grouper a tad over 26" goes in the box. Kept catching 18-19" inch fish. Pushed out to 85 ft of water. Story of the day continued with good vermillion and lane snapper, and lots of short red grouper. After a couple missed connections, another 22" RG was added to the fish box.

Pushed out a little further to 90 ft, where the saga of lanes and vermillion, along with a metric ton of short red grouper. We did manage 2 more legal RGs before calling it a day as the winds and seas began churning with the approaching cold front.

Was a beautiful day to be out on the water. Look forward to having you guys back out for some more action.
