We hit the inlet around 7, and headed out to a new area for us. Saw some traps out there in 70'. Headed out a little bit and saw some live bottom, all seaweed. Dropped anchor, used chicken rigs the first drop. I saw my dad reaching for his grouper rod, and i read his mind. Brought along some live pins since ive never used them before. Dad used boston mackreal, and i used a live pin. Dad gets hooked up, nice gag, a little short. I get a big hit, 25". Next drop for me, got a HUGE hit, half way up, broke off Evil or Very Mad An easy 15# fish. The other guy we were fishing with wanted to keep catching grunts and pinkies, even pulled up a nice Jolthead. My dad were non stop catching gags. Drop down another pin, small hit, probabally a small BSB. Get him up a little bit, and BAMM!!! Huge hit! Didnt fight like a shark, get it up, there was a BSB on the hook, along with a ~12# gag ON THE SAME HOOK! Didnt have the camra. Waiting for the other guy to email me the pic. Really cool. My dad pulled in a nice gag, about the same size. After limiting out in 20 minutes, my dad was getting heart broken from releasing all these nice gags. We moved to another spot to pick up smaller fish. Got some nice pinkies, BSB, grunts, etc. Last spot, anchor was stuck, got it up, bent. Oh well. All in all, fantasic day grouper groping. We were confused on what to do after we limited out at ~10:00, didnt want to head in. We have never had that problem before! Pictures are on Fryingpantower.com.
