    Our opening day catch with the Admiral and crew. Threw back several nice gags as well. Ran out at ~19 knots and in at ~32 knots. Nice day!

    went out Sunday out of Clearwater and got our **** handed to us by mothernature. Could only manage 16mph on our 24' Dusky on the way out and stayed within 10 miles. No keepers but plenty of action. Reds were just short 19-19 3/4. Forecast was 2'....****! NOAA

    30 Grady Bimini....45NM out, kinda snotty outbound...seemed to lay down a bit for the ride home..6 folks on board

    Lots of gags caught, vented and released. Couple nice reds - we only kept 8. Didn't drag hardware on way back, just enjoyed the ride and mourned the loss of our Gopro...there's a gag out there with a nice camera, stupid fish, doesn't have fingers so how is he gonna use it...

    Looks like it will be better later in the week

    If Red Grouper lurked under bridges and were accessible by a kayak, I would be all over them.:fishing Cant wait till the gag season opens up!
