Sorry, no picture, but my friend and I were fishing on the Bob Sikes bridge all the way at the end on New Years Eve and he pulled in about a 13 inch grouper. Fish went back, but it was fun to see something we hadn't seen all summer.

bladeco (1/10/2008)NO GROUPER IN THE BAY?!?! Then I guess I am catching something else over under the carrier pier on NAS Pensacola. we catch em all the time there.

I agree. I've seen people people catch big ones there too. Speaking of NAS, has anyone caught anything worth talking about over the past month? Seem like the bait fish and everything else ran off after the red tide hit.

My brother in law was in Destin two summers ago in late June and caught two legal sized gags or blacks [he can't tell the difference!] while trolling with a large Shad Rap in the bay, in the Bay Cones area. I was down there last September and all I could find where the Bay cones were supposed to be was one small hump off the bottom. Is that all there is? I also caught a few small blacks around the CG jetty and the Destin bridge.

I cannot believe the incredible ignorance of you people on this forum! Everybody knows there are no grouper in the bay, no snapper in the gulf, and certainly no trigger on the rigs. Furthermore, all those silly little reefs are hurting the whale migration and we should def. get some regs on the white trout as they are in short supply. Don't you care about our environment? I say we limit fishing to one week per year...kind of like what we do with doe days in Florida. We see the success of that program. It could work for the fish...too.

As far as a technic, well here's a couple. Live bait, heavy leader (at least 60LB), lock your drag and don't give them an inch.
