He caught this nice 22 inch red grouper. If he was here next month he could have kept it. But thanks to all those wonderful, caring people that don't know where the Keys are, he couldn't keep it today.
So he and his crew had to settle for snapper like this Lane, a fair number of 14 inch mangrove and a few porgies. Not that stellar a half day, since I have to try to figure out what is biting that we can actually keep. It has been slow the past few days. Lots of small fish getting in the way of the bigger ones. I took Joe, Jim, Mrs. D and Mrs. Lori out a couple times. They caught fish too, just nothing that blew wind up my skirt. Dolphin are still a little thin on some days, we found one school of legal fish, but no size to them, fishing out of Cudjoe Key.
They all had fun and learned stuff, so I don't feel that bad, but I hate it when the bite dies. The moon is passing and the winds are back to normal, so things will pick up.
