After a pretty soggy Labor Day weekend, I headed offshore Tuesday with Larry Kavulich and friend, Bruce. There was still plenty of rain around, but we managed to skirt most of it, and seas were tolerable at about 3 foot. We used live shrimp and cut pinfish for bait, along with some blue runners for goliath bait, fishing in 40 feet out of New Pass. We released one goliath grouper that was just shy of 50 pounds, and had three more goliaths break lines when they got in the wreck we were fishing. We also caught mangrove snapper to 15 inches, and triggerfish to 14 inches. Tuesday was the only day this week I fished, and the month of September is usually the slowest month of all for charters, so I will report them as they trickle in. Pretty soon, season will be upon us, and we will be struggling to accommodate all the folks who want to fish!
