Tarpon Springs, FL Report


44 Hr Florida Gulf of Mexico Middle Grounds Trip

The Starship trip departed on Friday night at the tail end of a cold front passing through; the weatherman predicted good weather for Saturday and Sunday. We went to the north end of the Middle Grounds and had a steady pick of large Mangrove Snapper and Gag Grouper until sun up. As the seas flattened we moved further west to a deep water wreck and had a good charge of gag grouper up to 37lbs and some small amberjacks. During Saturday almost every stop produced a steady pick of Mangrove Snapper & Gag Grouper, with some Red Grouper mixed in. At sun down we made a drop in 130’ of water which produced many American Red Snapper, up to approx. 25lbs and large Mangrove Snapper and Gag Grouper and a Cobia weighing approx. 35lbs.

Lee Tinter won the Grouper pool with a 37lb. Black Grouper; Greg Kurpita, of Jensen Beach, FL, took the Snapper pool with an 8.75lb. Mangrove Snapper and Tony Muia took the AJ pool with a 29lb’er.

Overall we had a fantastic weekend, great fishing and great weather!
