Offshore action is intense! We've been catching large red grouper, amberjacks, mahi-mahi, mangrove snappper, gag grouper, yellow tail snappper, big sharks – including black tip sharks. The best action is past 100 ft, and live bait such as pinfish has been working best.
Last Tuesday we guided Frank Almeda & his party through a bunch of gag & red grouper and snapper. Fishing was fast and furious, but because of his experience and skill, we were catching the largest and most impressive grouper. Frank is not only a thirty-eight year resident of Anna Maria Island, but he's 87 years old, which made his fishing skills even more astounding. Though he's the president of the Rod and Reel Pier Fishing Club, it was his first trip with Show Me The Fish Charters, and it was most definitely phenomenal. Way to go Frank!
