The point of the picture is just to encourage the OP to not get discouraged and keep looking. He lives and fishes out of the best grouper port on the east coast of Florida. Just have to put in some time and burn some fuel.

Thanks Tailin... think I may have seen your boat out here once or twice?

Appreciate all the comments. These past 5 or 6 trips have been frustrating... I know I have to change my set-up and try something other than the standard 8oz drop rig... Wicked currents at the deeper spots, especially in this wind don't help.

We are going out tomorrow and I will try the blade jigs and some larger baits.

Anyone have success catching grouper using mullet on a weighted nose rig?

If the Feds even saw this post, they would conclude we're all delusional. RS is threatened with extinction. Didn't we know?

We had the same issue on the Gulf side last year in July, August and September. The non-existent ARS were so thick it was hard to get anything to the bottom.

What's the shallowest anyone is getting grouper out of the Port? I was at Pelican over the weekend and got Snappers. They're a blast to catch but would like to be able to feed the family with a grouper.

Start in 120' and go deeper from there , anything shallower has been hit pretty hard by the spear guys . Try the 21 & 27 fathom ridges .

Baits big enough to deter the ARS gets the attention of that other extinct species, the Goliath Grouper
