Went fishing last week for Mackerel in the Gulf side.  We went 11 miles Northwest of Vaca Cut, 1 block of chum and live shrimp.  We caught 21 in two hours.

Yesterday and the day before we went spearfishing 4 miles South of Vaca Cut and did well with the fish.  All of this from my 14ft skiff that I built with my sons.  I need to get a bigger boat.

Yesterday and the day before we went to get our limit of Black Groupers before the season ended.  We also did well with Hogfish, Mutton, Mangroves, Yellow Jack, Mackerel, and last but not least Black Groupers.


Day before

My favorite picture is the last one, look at the guy on the right with the big smile, Nick. Always joking holding up two invisible fish. I will trade him for a larger cooler, I think I will get the best part of the deal in this transaction. I know this boat is great and will do for now, but our great spots that hold larger fish are a little further out and this boat has a hard time making it out to these premium spots. The boys are now into blue water spearfishing and have the taste for shooting wahoo, cobia, kingfish, and permits. They are at that age that it has to be big fast and dangerous if not it's boring. They love to see the buoy or reel on the gun go 100 miles per hour through the water. They like to chum up the bull sharks off the wrecks and shoot cobias. I have some videos of them shooting cobias on this link also
also this last one has him free diving the Thunderbolt those little schools of fish are 40 pound permits and massive jacks and that goliath grouper he shot the middle finger at must be at least 600 pounds.

This video at 2:50 has him shooting a wahoo, last May he hit a 40 and 70 pounder off of the Thunderbolt. This is why we need a larger boat. We want to freedive the Marathon Hump and Woods Wall area.

Nice job.

I had heard about the hogfish moving in a few weeks ago. You scored!
