Huge Florida Fisherman ll Catch

Huge Florida Fisherman II Catch
If you have ever even thought about fishing the Florida Middle Grounds now is the time. The Grounds are absolutely on fire. To say the American Red Snapper and Gag Grouper fishing is HOT would be a huge understatement.

June 12, 2020, the Florida Fisherman ll returned from a 39 hour trip to the Grounds with a mountain on fish:

Weather permitting every Florida Middle Grounds & vicinity trip has returned with catches most can't even dream about. 
Tuesday, June 16, 2020, let's do it again.
The weather is absolutely Florida Perfect:

After a fantastic hot off the grill meal, and a good rest, let the fights begin.
Mangrove Snapper are fun to catch and even more fun the eat, and, on the Grounds, they grow HUGE!

Speaking of HUGE... The Red and Gag Grouper grow BIGGER than BIG on the Grounds.
Omar has been fishing with Hubbard's for well over 40 years. His career began on the Miss-Pass-a-Grille ll with Captain Wilson Hubbard:

    If you have ever even thought about fishing the Florida Middle Grounds now is the time. The Grounds are absolutely on fire.  
    We are 'fished-out' tired.
    Time for a hot shower, fantastic meal, and good night sleep.

    Want to know why Florida is known as the Fishing Capital of the World?

    Nothing beats coming home in the money:

    A very special thanks to Mr. Joseph Gorscos for taking time out from fishing to provide us with an action packed, on the water, video of our trip.
    Thank you Sir... Job well done!

    "You my friend are way to old to risk Covid as am I"
    Agreed 100%
    Too old to go on the boat but I still love sharing. Sir, I lost my wife of 39 years and our youngest daughter to cancer. When they passed part of me went with them. Sharing gives me something to live for.
    People seem to really like what I do. My video on the Tuesday 39 hour Florida Fisherman trip has been viewed 1.4 thousand times in 3 days. 
    Just posted this video on the 6/19/20 trip:
    (complete story to follow... West Central Section)


    It's been viewed 112 times in the first 2 hours. 

    Fishing & hunting have been part of me for 70 of my 78 years. Balancing on boat decks & charging through swamps have caught up with me. My legs are completely shot. But I am determined to do the best I can with what I have left. 
    John & Tammy take the pictures & video then Captain Dylan Hubbard sends the raw data to me;  I edit & publish.
    I make absolutely nothing out of it other than the satisfaction that I am sharing our Florida with so many. I have lived my entire life in Tampa. Now It's payback time for living a life time in Paradise. 
    I love hog hunting, but can no longer hunt as I once did. I am forced to use an outfitter. Planing a BIG July 4 hunt with Two Guys & A Hog.

    I may be down, but I refuse to give up!
