Stingwray trip 6-7-18

On  today's trip had son-in-law and some of his family members. Did a short 1/2 trip as it was their first trip on my vessel. I think they had more fun with catching shark then groupers. Overall another great day on the gulf with some tired but happy fishermen.

    I know most folks don't like catching sharks & I understand that.  But, they put up one heck of a pull on your line and for folks that don't fish a lot, it's a huge fish for them & a pretty cool deal to them....makes for a great story for them to tell.

    Nice grouper, BTW!  :)

    Cap Ron put us on the fish again, nephews and brother in law had the time of their life, they just wanted to keep the shark, lol...they are already talking about their next trip and reeling in the big snappers. 
    Never a disappointing moment aboard the Stingwray!

    It's always fun to have my son in law and his family on my vessel for a day on the gulf. Glad you'll had a great time and ready to take them again. :)

    Hey new to the area, from south fla where I deep drop for vermillion snappers.  Didn’t know u caught them up that way.  Do you regularly target them, or are they common up that way..

    thanks in advance

    No deep water dropping for vermillion snap aka b- liners in Panhandle. I don't target em but do catch a few so we have a mixed box of fish. Here is a trip  5~6 years ago when federal limit was 20 p/p. Today it's 10 p/p in Federal waters.
