Cooler water, hotter fishing!

Grayton Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report
November and around here that means flounder, flounder, and more flounder. If you've got the touch, limiting out on flounder can get done in short order this time of year. That means lighter tackle, which is always fun. And for those that are touch challenged I've re-spooled a couple of reels with braided line for an extra advantage in catching the flatfish.
The lesser amberjacks are as plentiful as the flatfish. I got out Saturday morning just fishing by myself and limited out with my five in just ten minutes.
Triggerfish, also with a good bite and with that comes the downside of these master bait thieves stealing your bait while targeting other species.
Groupers are still being the hardest thing to get boated without the sharks getting hold of them first while wresting them away from the bottom. However the scamp groupers are doing good. As a reminder Gag grouper season will close until July first on Dec. 4th. However, FWC just rescinded the closed season for all other groupers. So game on there.
The king mackerel bite is just about gone and I would imagine that after this next cold front that's forecast to pull through tomorrow will end the king fishing for the season.
Red Snapper season is closed, again, but that doesn't mean you still can't catch and release'em to your hearts content.
Lots of folks already in town and more on their way for the thanksgiving holiday this week and I still have a few charter openings available. Lets go fishing!
Flounder, grouper, lesser amberjacks, triggerfish
