  1. 80 lb test no drag. Threadfin alwifes for bait. We were also catching grunts and if you wanted to try for a giant, we ran those too. No drag cause the fish will just run right into the caves and cut you off. The fight was incredable with no drag. You really had to hold on. Couldn't use a belt because if you hooked a giant, it would take you right overboard. RR
  2. Got out for a charter the day after thanksgiving. What a time! We caught over 130 of these bruts! Most between 10 and 20 lbs. After I had my fill I went for a giant (100 lbs or more) hooke a huge one but it ended up being a 100 lb sea turtle. He was unharmed. We each kept 2 for eating. Rick was a great captain! Anyone who is down in that area should give him a buzz for some great fishing. http://www.gulfgrouper.com/
  3. I do this trip every year with my Dad and my bud, Tracy. The water was too warm this year but we got a few. When the water temp is in the mid 60's it makes the fishing tough. Idealy, it needs to be in the mid 50's for good action. Its a beautiful river! RR
