Sun & Fun on the SHUR KETCH - Fed. Waters, Sun. 8 Feb
Finally a day when the "A" Team could get together, with good weather predictions. Launched the SHUR KETCH at SCM with the idea to hit Fed. Waters for some Mongo hunting.





The Pass was boiling with an outgoing tide, 4' rollers, etc. Friends were following us out in a smaller boat, but made the right decision and turned back!




We muscled through and the further out we got, seas dropped to the predicted 2 footers and layed down more as the day went on.




First stop and the jiggen' boys (TJ and Skip) had the jigs popping. Many short AJs, and TJ hauled up a beautiful Gag. Oh, well, photo op and back down to grow bigger.......




Had some big Sea Turtles streaming by, and the porpi were always interested in the Mingo we were landing.



Sun was Terrific!



Hauled in a bunch of Lane along with the Mongos, and sorted through the multitude of Red Snapper, small Trigger and assorted.











Nice assorted box provided dinners for all. Wonderful day on the Gulf!​

Good report and looked like a good time.

Why can't we keep red snapper? They're OUR fish.

Hurts your heart to have to throw a lot of them back. Yup, especially when ya haul up from deep and KNOW that are not going to survive the trip back. Feed Mother Nature, but not our species'
