Woke up this morning and saw how nice it was outside and decided to tough it out even though it was cold and windy and go to my spot again. It was definitely worth it. Got there around 10 and the tidal current was non-existent for the most part but there was a lot of current on the surface from the wind and it was going into the bayou. Very first cast of the day hooked a giant, but it ended up shaking off in front of me, but I knew it was about to be on so no worries. Caught several from that spot but the muddy tide line came through and ruined it, or so I thought. Moved down a ways to where the current was flowing around an eddy and didn't have to move the rest of the time. Tide line moved on, water cleared back up and caught one after another for over an hour and they were all nice size fish. Had a nice limit by around 1 but kept fishing for fun. Around 2:30 I see a few boats making their way through the bay and next thing I know I hear Josh (LimitOut) asking how its going. Jumped in the boat with him for a little while before I headed in.
As usual, used the Xrap 08 to catch them, casting into the current and letting it drift into the eddy where the bigger fish would slam it. Fish were all fighting very hard today and was a lot of fun. Kept 5 from 16-19". Thanks for reading. Here's some pics:

Grouperking- gotta get while the gettin is good. I don't keep many during the summer as they are usually very skinny so I like to load up on the winter time fatties.

Josh and Selina- I may work on changing that, but its time to go out and catch a few more. Thanks for the kind words

I wasn't trying to take a jab at you for keeping them. I was just complementing you on your skills. :thumbsup:

Hey guys...this is my first Pensacola Fishing Forum participation. Just bought a multi-species boat but I'm new to inshore fishing. I'm in Crestview and figure Destin and Pensacola are about the same distance away. Anyone willing to show a rookie the ropes?

Welcome to the forum man! Lots of awesome people here & some great information. Josh (LIM-IT-OUT) is probably the best person here to show you the ropes. He's one of the best dudes on here & he'll put you on some great fish, I can promise you that.
