Default Personal best gag grouper

Back in town and went to check on 2 previous deployments in the Navarre Formation, 22 large Tetrahedrons. Checked locations for 6 and will do the next in the coming weather windows. Didn't dive as this was just confirm Coords. Santa Rosa and FWC will post the official ones prolly early Feb.

Some of them are close to where I had other spots so I went to check one and dropped a croaker I picked up on the way out, it was behind a 1/4oz slip weight.

slipped the croaker over and down he went, just hovering over the spot with not much current or wind, tap -TAP and it was on. I figured a ARS would clobber the croaker but didn't fight like that, made strait for the structure but the Fury 500 stopped him while the yak slid sideways across the surface... got him turned and when I saw the color of Gag I tightened up, a KEEPER.

Good lip hook, got a gaff in the lower jaw and got the phone out, "google per Florida Wildlife Commission when is grouper season in FL?" .. and then he came home for supper. When it popped to the surface it was def the biggest one I've caught off the yak. At Broxon's 16.7#.

I can't wait for the rest of the reefs to go in, them to season some, and produce some great memories for folks. I'll take with FWC and see when the numbers are supposed to be posted. I can tell you of the 6 LT the 22 LT that are splashed they are right on the money from the plan. Those are public over in the Reefs and Wrecks page.


Cheers!
