Hot Florida Grouper and Snapper Fishing in July
As we all know all too well July is hot, very hot, in Florida.
The weather is not all that is hot; the grouper and snapper fishing is steaming.

3 pm Tuesday afternoon, July 28, 2020, the Florida Fisherman ll heads for the far off Middle Grounds & beyond on a 39 hour grouper/snapper trip:

First up, the elusive, hard to fool, great to eat Mangrove Snapper:

What an honor having angleretts fishing with us:

The Federal waters two day limit of Mangrove Snapper is 20 per person, and there is NO closed season:






Wednesday morning:

Trolling between stops can be extremely exciting, and rewarding. On this trip three Tuna & a Wahoo were caught trolling.
The Blackfin Tuna were caught on a XRAP magnum 30 with a red head & a white body. The proud anglers purchased the lure from Hubbard's tackle shop on the advice of Captain Dylan Hubbard.
The Wahoo was caught on a NOMAD MADMACS SINKING LURE. What a fight! Did you know that Wahoo can hit speeds of 60 MPH?

Florida grouper fishing in July is HOT.
The hard fighting, great eating, Gag Grouper:



Talk about 'great eating,'
The best of the best... The Scamp Grouper:


Wow! that's a BIG Yellowtail Snapper:

Now! Let's take a look at one of the most prized fish ever to swim... The American Red Snapper:

Thursday morning...
As the Florida docks the Flying HUB ll is leaving:

Those massive twin 425 hp Yamaha's play no games. The far off Middle Grounds can be fished on a one day trip.
This weekend marks the end of federally permitted for hire ARS fishing until next June. Hopefully more days will be added this fall to the recreational sector.
Check out the on the water trip video:






Did anyone spot the Vermilion Snapper?
