Grunts and Seabass available

Postby fishforfun » February 11th, 2019, 8:11 am

A window of very calm weather early Friday 2-8-19 prompted me to go check out Rotary Reef for Sheepshead. Was by myself with shrimp, no sheepshead there but released a nice 23 in black drum. Then went about 8 miles further south to some live bottom areas in 28-30 feet and found lots of grunts and seabass. Water was 59 degrees, greenish with 10-12 ft visibility. Let a few small Gags go, kept 11 seabass and three larger grunts. Let many others go. No one out there, beautiful morning.

Sounds like a nice relaxing day!
think I'll try to get out this weekend. Anyone finding any flounder out on any of the reefs?

Nice- hoping the weather will allow that this weekend as well.
What was your bait choice?

I caught a 15" flounder a week ago Sunday at Wakulla Big Bend Regional Reef #2. However, the overall bite was slow that day.

Cool, what bait or artificial did you catch the flounder with?

I caught the flounder on live shrimp while using a Carolina rig with a 1/0 circle hook, 12" of fluorocarbon leader, and a 0.5 oz. bullet weight.
