Default First Offshore Trip of 2009 - Plenty of Action with a Great Crew of Kids!!


I fished today with my two kids and my good friend and his son in Steve’s boat. We left the dock just before 8:00 and were fishing by 9:15. We fished primarily with dead bait consisting of Sardines and Squid on a variety of rod & reel combinations including a medium/light spinning combo with 20 lb braid, a heavy combo spinning with 50 lb braid and two conventional Torium 30’s.

My daughter has been fishing all her life but had not been past 15 miles offshore in a few years. Sydnee was the first to hookup and boated a 18” Red Grouper which she released.





Minutes later it was Matthew’s turn to fight what ended up to be the second keeper fish of the day a 21” Red Grouper.





Later it was Harrison’s turn to play with the light tackle.



Our family with some of the keepers.



Steve and Harrison with a couple more keepers including Harrisons personal best a 26 ˝ Gag.



A couple more photos of the crew.





Fishing from 9:15 to around 1:15 we boated well over 100 fish including 1 Gag @ 26 1/2” and 5 Red Grouper from 20” to 24”. All five of us caught one keeper fish with Matthew getting two……………. Imagine that!!!! A special day for sure.

Just trying to rub salt in the wounds of those Northerners who are going to be fishless for the next 4 months?
