We got the our spot around 10 in about 175-180 ft of water and started fishing. We all got some triggers and some nice ones at that as well as a couple porgys, a grunt, a beeliner, a couple dolphin and 2 grouper (one was short). These were my first keeper grouper, i caught 6 or 7 others this year, most of which were literaly an inch or two too short so needless to say, I was excited! All three of us lost big fish as well. All fish caught on squid and cigar minnows except the grouper (live bait for the big one and diamond jig for the other). All in all, it was a great day on the water with awesome weather and even better friends.
