Ran out of Tarpon Springs on the Gulfstar this past weekend. The weather gods smiled on us with seas less than 2' and light winds until the run back in. Then it got a little sporty but that's OK. What started as an attempt to fish some new grounds on my part ended up with us chartering the boat and 17 of us hit the water this past Friday evening. After a 120 mile run to the first spot we set up for some overnight mangrove snapper action. And it was on. After first light we moved into deeper water to look for some grouper and ARS. After trying a couple spots and moving on, we hit the jackpot. We finished out the trip on Sunday afternoon, packing over 500 lbs of grouper and snapper fillets heading to North Carolina, Denver, Philly, Cleveland and Columbus OH. The guys are already talking about doing it again next year. Hell, I'll still have fish in the freezer next year.

awesome trip and catch wtg What depth were you fishing on average? That 40# gag must have been a hell of a battle. Thanks for posting

Surprisingly shallow for the distance we ran Chum. Depth varied from 90 to 170 feet. We lost several that rocked us up and I pulled the hook on another big one. It was a great time Gary. Sorry you couldn't make it amigo!
