Hooray, Hooray, it’s the first of May, Grouper fishing starts today. Islamorada is the best place to fish for grouper. We have been catching and releasing a lot of them. Starting today we can keep some. They are probably the best eating fish around.
The first day out we got a couple nice black grouper and a scamp. The black grouper are the best eating of all of them.
Joe and Angie came all the way from Missouri to do a little fishing. It was windy, but they were pumped up to go. We went and had a great day. Angie got a chance to wrestle with some big fish with Joe looking on.
We started on the reef and were doing well on the snappers , when the sharks moved in. We were unable to get another fish to the boat and had to leave.
We got a report that dolphin were in the shallow water and headed out. We managed a nice catch of dolphin up to 18lbs. We also picked up one blackfin tuna and a barracuda.
Had a great day with the newly weds and there children. We had a lot of fun with barracuda, cero mackerel and a nurse shark.
