it was a awesome day on the gom thrusday 4/1 flat all day made for nice ride! on the way out to catch some opening day groupers. we stopped a couple places for bait. didn't find much biting untill we got 200 feet deep. went to get some aj's first and they were happy to see us. the live bait was hit hard a nd fast, no problem putting our three aj,s in the box, to at 34,35 inches and mine at 40. nice fish. needed that tough it's been a long winter. well we also got two almacos and a nice mingo while we were there. move to try to find some grouper. did manage to pull up two gag's but undersize. slow day on the gouper. we put a nice black snapper in the box. couple more mingos, but was kinda slow afternoon not much current slow bite. decided to go check on a reef we put down last year and it's doing fine! loaded up we fish but nothing reel big mostly bait size. thanks cool they will grow! came home helped wash walt's 24 w/a and it was miller time! fesh aj steaks on the grill! yumm!. heres a few pics enjoy we did. and also forgot to mention roy was our three crew member. seen here with his keeper aj.

That was a beautiful day to be out thats for sure. It is funny you mention the current was slow. We just fished out to about fifteen miles and the current was ripping. We managed one 28" gag on a jig and a couple of AJs. We thought about going out further but didn't. Thanks for the report and the pics.
