I fished inshore three days this week and that report is posted in the inshore forum.

Thursday, I headed offshore in calm seas with Mark and Angie Evans, Jeff and Richard Evans and Nicholas Quarterman. We caught some nice whitebone porgies to 20 inches, keeper mangrove snapper and keeper Spanish mackerel. We released red and gag grouper shorts and undersized triggerfish. The highlight of the trip for Mark was when we switched from light tackle and shrimp baits to heavy tackle with double blue runners—He and I hauled in a 400 pound goliath grouper, which we released boat-side after it put both of us on the floor of the boat, and looking more like a bar brawl than a fishing expedition!

A morning of fishing with Shawn Hennessey and Dave Johnson on Friday produced keeper mangrove snapper, triggerfish, Spanish mackerel and lots of red and gag grouper shorts, in about 45 feet out of <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:placename w:st="on">New</st1:placename> <st1:placetype w:st="on">Pass</st1:placetype></st1:place>, using live shrimp.
