Birthday catch

Took my son and 2 grands to Cedar Key to celebrate my birthday. Redfish beats a birthday cake any day.

Pair of Snowy’s

Kelly and I caught this pair of snowy grouper on a busted swordfish trip out of Key West. We caught them deep dropping in 800′ of water using Diawa electrics, 10 lbs of lead, and squid/bonito bait combos.

Nia vs. the RGs

Our first-ever attempt at finding Red Grouper resulted in a very memorable trip! Limited out with a bunch of lunkers in 40′ of water. They were hitting so fast and hard, we started to just share one rod. One person fished, while the other rested and cheered on.

Captain Knopf trip with Allen Turner and Ed Ellett as crew

7/1/14 opening Gag Grouper season, with Captain Knopf, Allen Turner and Ed Ellett as crew out of Steinhatchee. Great trip – though the Gag Grouper limit eluded us (caught two legal), quite a variety of species were caught, and, some nice fish!

Kelly’s Snowy

Kelly Wagner caught this nice snowy grouper while deep dropping off Key West.
