Bringing in the New Year with groupers!

Much grouper action has been happening with Capt. Larry & the Lakewood Ranch Fishing Club. To the left is Chuck Bismark (Bradenton), with Capt. Anthony Leverett assisting on a giant goliath grouper.  This beast was caught (and carefully released to fight another day) using sardines on an 80 lb test, about 125 ft offshore of Anna Maria Island.  The goliath grouper weighed approximately 130 lbs, which is actually considered small for this species, as many group up to 800 lbs locally.  The Lakewood Ranch Fishing Club also caught an immense amount of mangrove snapper, red grouper- some up to 20 lbs, released a few large gag groupers.  Below is Chuck Walker from Bradenton, holding his trophy-sized red grouper he caught using a sardine in about 125 ft offshore of Anna Maria Island. Some other impressive red grouper have been caught lately on Capt. Larry's charters.

Below is Paul Fourmier and Tim Bradey, from Clearwater, with their red grouper. They were using sardines, in about 130 ft offshore of Anna Maria Island. The party also caught more grouper and snapper had a fantastic day fishing.

Make 2013 a great year for fishing by going out on the trip of a lifetime with Capt. Larry or giving a gift certificate to someone who really enjoys a hardcore fishing experience they're sure to be talking about for a long time.  There's still plenty of grouper out there, just waiting for someone to come out & get 'em some!
