Went to my usual spot in Venice when the weather down by me (fort myers) doesn't look so good. First loaded up the livewell with over 50 pinfish and started heading offshore. Caught a bunch of red snapper and red grouper as usual. Waves were a lot bigger than predicted but I knew it was supposed to calm down as the day went on. Took us about an hour and 45 minutes to reach our destination. And there were 4+ footers when we got to the first spot. We knew it would be a very slow and rough ride back in, going against the waves, if it didn't calm down. Luckily the fishing, or catching rather on this trip, was non stop. Our very first drop two of us got instantly hooked up on a red snapper and a red grouper.
The wind and waves calmed down as the day went on and it was eventually around 1-1.5 footers (This video is towards the end of the day so it is more calm). Came home with one shy of a 4 persons limit of red grouper and a nice 22 inch mangrove snapper. Caught over 20 red snapper during this trip. For sure need to go back to this place when they are in season!
Enjoy the video and please subscribe! Also watch out for my next video, there will be more variety. Yellowtail, almaco jack, amberjack, mangrove snapper, red grouper and red snapper.
