Default Grouper and Redfish on the Water Hazard 5-20-2009

I ran an inshore trip today with Matt and Richard. These guys brought their "A" game and wore out the grouper and Redfish. The morning started windy as all get out. Just as predicted the 20-25 knot winds made me earn my money today. We tried a couple spots in the bay early this morning and caught one ladyfish. After getting beat up for a little while I asked them how they felt about grouper fishing. 2 hours later we had caught over 20 grouper ranging in size from 18'-21.5". Lost a couple bigger ones and did not get to bring any home, but they sure had a good time catching grouper in the bayon a WINDY day.

Left the grouper spot and decided we would try a few redfish holes on the way back home. First spot, first cast, FISH ON! Matt hooks up a nice slot red measuring 25". As I am unhooking Matt's fish I hear Richards drag screaming and we have two slot reds in two cast. We stayed a little while longer catching and releasing 7-8 more slot reds on light tackle and called it a day. The redfish were definately fired up and we probably could have made a day out of catching redfish if we wanted to earlier in the day.

Didn't take any pictures of the grouper, as I didn't think about the camera until we got on the redfish. Take it for what its worth oke
