We had two guys who wanted to grouper fish only on a 4 hour trip. I was reluctant to take them due to the fact that four hours is a small window of time for gags. I say that because I'm one of those 9.4 knts kinda boat captain. So I told them that I would take them grouper fishing but wasn't going to go all over searching for a limit unless they wanted to buy more time. Luckily for me the first stop after the live bait was 3.8 miles out of St. Andrews pass in 65' of water. First drop wham to the rail and the guy says "I can't turn the handle", after a few seconds he hears me saying "pull up, reel down" and starts to make headway. First fish in the boat was a nice 18#. Second drop wham the other guy is on the rail when starts to vomit over the side. He was a trooper though and never gave up, after a minute over the rail comes a 14# fish. At this point I'm so excited about the two fish that I'm ready for the next drop and they tell me they've had enough. On to the barn we go.
