Muttons, Yellowtails, and a Goliath Grouper

Muttons, Yellowtails, and a Goliath Grouper

We started out today on our 6 hour trip the same place we fished last night. The current and wind were still working together which allowed us to set up perfectly. It wasn't long before we got some bites but before we knew it we lost 5 nice Muttons before getting them to the boat. Things went on like this but we finally got two nice fish in the cooler. We also hooked and fought some big sharks here before we moved. We slid in to a wreck in 95 feet and put the chum bag out. We had 3 lines on the bottom fishing and 2 flat lines for Yellowtails and Permit. After one of our Yellowtails was eaten by a Goliath Grouper we pulled out a heavy tackle rod and free lined a bait down. It didn't take but a minute to feel the taps and we were hooked up to a 150 pound fish. After a tough fight we got her boat side for some pictures, vented her swim bladder, and watched her get back down the bottom safely. We decided to call it a day with the winds picking up and a cooler full of fish. (By the way, we just got back from Dantes restaurant here in Key West where we took our fish from today and ate dinner with our charter....Wow, nothing like fresh Yellowtail.)
