just wanted to check-in and tell all my GG friends to be well and to stay safe.. an extraordinary time to live thru for all of us... until they come up with a vaccine this Corona-Virus will most likely be with us for at least a year the way I see it.. too widespread.. it has of course affected the way we go about our lives-- especially for all of us 'older than dirt' .. for us our favorite pastime in retirement is traveling the world cruising-- which of course has taken a major hit and could be the end of the industry as we know it.. all that aside.. again be safe and be aware of your surroundings.. stay well

Gee. I hate to hear that Gavin and Paul have passed on. We're all getting older. I just turned 70 last month. Never thought I would get this far.

a sad day... Paul Hibbitt, a Jersey boy, and an original GG from way back in time passed away this past Thursday.. we were on FB these days .. pretty sure he attended the famous 'flaming BBQ' at the Dockside  .. back in the 90's the 'Mo contingent' also used to meet on the OBx in Buxton in the fall to fish the point.. RIP Paul

One of our original members from the early days of GG has passed away. You may remember Gavin Sneed from NC. He went on to establish the Shamrock Boat Owners club and forums. I enjoyed some good conversations with Gavin and I know that he will be missed by many.

  Fishing Report 10/13
Posted by: Jack Hexter - 10-14-2019, 10:52 PM - Forum: GreenGrouper - Replies (3)

WEll NMFS gave us a 6 day open season in October for ARS.  3 weekends in a row.  Weather as sketchym, but we decided to make a go of it as buddy's boat hadn't been run in about 3 months.

Weather man lied again as Windfinder predicted 1.5'  which was actually 3-4' and never did calm down to the 1' predicted in the afternoon, it did drop from 15 to 10 mph.  Beanbag made the ride tolerable, but spray collected and when I stood up, I found I was sitting in 1/2" of water.

Bounced our way out to 113', 60 miles out of Anclote.  Made our first stop in 90' and first drop, buddy pulls a nice ARS.  Bite faded to grunts so we went a little further and pulled a keeper Gag and some ARS, but again the bite faded so we went to our original destination and pulled some more ARS, and finally the Mango bite started.  Came home with a limit of ARS, 5 mangos, a keeper gag, keeper red grouper and a bunch of Almaco Jacks that are being brined as I type this.  There was the odd Yellowtail and even a strawberry grouper (released)  First one of these I've caught on this coast.

I left the dock at 7:10 accompanied by friends and fellow club members Stu and Tom  Picked up bait from the traps I placed the day before and we were off on a LONG ride, 53 miles to a spring in 103′ It was a little rough going out but the Pressure Point handled the chop with little problem. On arrival about 2 1/2 hours later, dropped the marker on a good show of fish and proceeded to anchor up, set out a chum block and started to fish. Unfortunately, the fish did not want to cooperate. I was expecting mangroves and big AJ’s. All we caught were short AJ’s, Almaco Jacks and out of season ARS. After several hours, we decided to go to another spring, 13 miles SW of the first in 125′ of water. Very little show on this spring, but my first drop on it produced hope as a short red grouper came up. Unfortunately, that’s about all that came up except for the elusive. out of season ARS. With the seas flattening and the fish not cooperating we called it a day at 2:30 and ran home, getting there at the reasonable hour of 4:30 with a half dozen Almaco's in the box for the smoker
