Red groupers on the Attack

Capt. Michael Avinon
July 25, 2012
Naples - Saltwater Fishing Report

Well it doesn't matter what kind of trip we run there is always one thing in common,red groupers.Once again this summer there are plenty of red groupers to be had filling in every piece of rock betweem 10 miles and as far as you can run offshore.I ran a full day last week and caught 9 keeper groupers to 12 pds for dinner. The boys said they wanted goliath grouper so off to a wreck we went and caught 4 up to 150pds.This time of the year when a customer ask can we catch a goliath I ask them how many do you want to catch.Usually after the second one its all over but the sore back and arms.One of the key ingredients to catching goliath groupers is the day after remedy,a bottle of pain releivers on the nightstand so you can get out of bed in the morning.On a different note I ran a 10 hr and 12 hr trip last week and caught a limit of red groupers on both trips,20 on the 10hr,and 24 on the 12hr.Also in the mix on the longer trips are a mutton snapper or two with the occasional king.

I have been operating out of Naples for over twenty years and have the spots to prove it.With a range of over 400 miles and the speed to get there quickly the options are endless.We are consistently one of the top producing boats in sw florida,stop by the city dock and see for yourself.
