|Gulf of Mexico 8-7-10|
It's been a great summer, but this week especially.
Half Day Trips on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday all produced keeper Gag grouper between 23 and 28 inches. The mangrove snapper bite has been good for this time of year, ranging from 14 to 17 inches. Live pins worked for both, but they were hitting cut sardines and mullet with a vengeance..
There is good catch and release Goliath action on on most of the near shore reefs too. We released 4 this week that were between 70 and a 100 pounds.
The Spanish mackerel have thinned out some but the dozen or so we caught were between 24 and 26 inches. Lots of fun on light tackle.
