yeah I have been pretty lucky, he gave up freshwater fishing and bought a 23 or 24 foot center console to go after grouper in the gulf...now that i am stationed 6 hours away I get to go along with him quite often...i will have to scan some of the grouper pictures he sent me a couple weeks ago.

king mackeral?  if seo, yeah we usually get at least one over 30" every time we go out.  Last time i went with him I caught a Mahi-Mahi trolling.  We hardly ever hear of people catching them in that part of the Gulf.

Man, Kings and Cobia are my favorite fish to Ty into!

This has been a weird year on the coast!  I cough a Triple Tail down there this year off the rig. Thats very rare off a pier in SC! Also cough a porcupine buffer, that fish is almost never cough in SC its a Bahama coastal fish.

Yeah those Kings can burn through some line for sure.  Some of the bigger Bonita pull pretty good also.

This fish was caught about 100 miles due south from Apalachicola.  Never tried the spear fishing thing, but it sounds like a blast.
