8.12.15 Fishing Report Mike B

Mike Kaplan, Bob Sherley and Mike Brumley met at 0445, 10 AUG at Mike Kaplan’s boat and loaded up and headed for Nick’s Park.  Launched in the dark to pick up some live bait and then headed out about 50 miles looking for Red Grouper.  Both live bait and cut bait worked well and Mike Kaplan helped us all limit out on nice red grouper, the biggest was 30 inch bruiser.  We used the standard egg sinker rig with 6 oz and a number 6/0 circle hook on the bottom.  We all caught 10-15 smaller red grouper as well as the six keepers and released them back to the deep.  We also caught a nice mangrove snapper (Mike K) and some porgies, yellow tail and various other small reef fish.  We fished in about 100 feet of water and water temp was 85 degrees.  Beautiful
