    Default Yellowedge Grouper

    We were able to land our first yellowedge grouper this past weekend.

    Left Surfside around 3 PM on Saturday and ran straight to the shelf. We ended up with about 10-12 tiles, 3-4 barrel fish, and this yellowedge that the girlfriend caught!



    We worked Nansen until dawn with only a few barracuda and BFT. We chunked, used poppers and drifted all night with nothing to show for it.

    I thought about running to Boomvang, just never did. I'm curious of any reports because by the morning we were one of the the only two boats remaining.

    We ended up trolling back inshore where we jumped a few dorado before finally calling it a trip.

    It was a fun couple of days with some great conditions.

    We are West End Anglers, a saltwater tribe!

    I like the way that groupers eyes popped out looking at your girlfriend!

    I don't blame the grouper at all. Sounds like a good trip. And your right about the conditions, Muddskipper and I even took my blackjack to the 14 mile rigs Sat, and then Sunday he and I and my son Cotton went to the 18 mile rig.

    Sounds like an Awesome trip. Nice job on the Grouper and you got to love Tiles and Dorado.
    The water looks fantastic for deep sea fishing.
