I went on 43 hour trip on the 65' Sea Trek out of Ft Myers Florida on Jan 26 -28. Grouper fishing was excellent. This must be one of the best party boat grouper fishing I've had in terms of quality. The majority of groupers caught were in 15 - 25 lbs range. I got limit(5) on jigs and three of them were in 20 - 25 lbs range. Most grouper caught on the boat were gag groupers and there are only few red grouper caught. My friend Yong who also flied down to Ft Myers from NJ for the trip with nice gag grouper on a jig. This is his first ever grouper on jigs. My firt grouper of the trip on a 8 oz hammered diamond jig. Most guy who jigged used hammered diamond jigs on the trip. The hammered diamond jigs become popular for grouper jigging on Florida paty boats. I brougt only one rod for the trip. OTI two-piece 80 lbs custom conventional rod with spiral wrap. My only red grouper on a jig. Most grouper caught on the trip were gag grouper. Nice scampie caught by this young kid. He looks professional from top to bottom. Nice gag grouper gaffed by mate Greg. very nice mate. Before this gag grouper, I hooked up a monster grouper, but I dropped the fish while fighting. As soon as I dropped back my jig to the bottom again, this grouper hammered my jig.
