    What a great weekend to get back on the water after being on the hard for 3months. Both mornings we were greeted with light and slight. Not wanting to deal with the inshore boat traffic no matter how good the Gag bite has been I headed off to were I left them biting back in August..Had the usual cast of Swell Rider charaters with me, Kennedy, Wesco and Phil. Once we got set up on the piece it didn't take long for a few fish to hit the deck, it was a good call to head offshore 30nm because it was a real good mix of Grouper, Gags, Reds, Scamps and ARS plus all the other bottom fair, some monster Pinkies and plenty of AJ'S on the jigs and poppers and if B-liners were still open we could have sunk the boat with all the 2-4# we caught sunday. We fished in 90' to 110' of water with the temp pushing 76 there were also big schools of small Mahi just about everywhere in the area we were fishing Sunday..Aside from all the larger Grouper we caught there was a great showing of juvinial Grouper which is a great sign, hey Joe I don't think there reproducing yet!!LOL. Anyway I'll keep fishing till I get shut down in Dec..Hopefully the weather will stay nice..

    Dec is a great month for Grouper and AJ fishing in NC..Also the Bluefin Tuna are starting to show up out of Morehead City..The run to the grounds for the Grouper and AJ'S is between 25 to 40 nm and much closer for the BFT...I operate out of Atlantic Beach/Morehead City in Dec and Jan so if your looking at doing a trip let me know..Jigs or Bait doesn't matter...
