Hi all, just got back from the big pond(Gulf of Mexico).My group spent 12 hours saturday out on the Summerhunter fishing for Snapper and Grouper.We brought in 300 plus pounds of fish which included 23 grouper and one amber jack in the 30lb range and one king in the 20lb class ,with a lot of trigger and Snapper rounding out the trip.It was a beautiful day out on the gulf with light winds and 85 temps.Everyone caught fish!!The next 6 weeks should be prime for bottom fishing before the real heat sets in.The only negative is that despite all the ads telling people to come to the coast ,Its not ready as there are still lots of places closed and most of the motels are renting to construction companies.Also the beaches are still pretty hard packed and really eroded. But if you just going to fish its great ,even the shore fishing at alabama point had blue fish and Spanish mackeral running right now ..screaming reels to all!!
