Near shore– The Bertrand family from Seminole recently chartered the HUB for a half day private charter. They caught some beautiful red grouper and plenty of snapper despite the slower bite we have been seeing due to the recent turbulent weather. When the weather allows us we have been getting offshore when possible, but due to the extremely low temps the fishing has been a little slower than normal.
Offshore– The last time we were able to get offshore was our January the 8th 39 hour long range overnight fishing trip at Hubbard’s Marina. After that the weather has caused us to cancel our other long range fishing trips. This last 39 hour did well on the big mangroves, we caught some beautiful big African pompano, nice big yellowtail snapper, a few red grouper, and a dozen or more fat amberjack after losing nearly twenty of them to the wreck. We also caught some beautiful big blackfin tuna while trolling during this recent long range fishing trip at Hubbard’s Marina.
