Just when the fish thought it was safe to swim, CMFA reminded them it wasn’t! We killed some whoppers on this trip. The young buck showed the big boys how it was done. Bringing in a show stopping, BEAUTIFUL Red Grouper, Joseph showed the ol’ guys what was up! All around great trip and couldn’t be prouder of these #RottyBoyz!
IT’S 👶🏼👶🏼TWINS!! Sunday produced another incredible day offshore! We watched the sun come up on the ride out over eerily calm water. Aside from what felt like the hottest ☀️🌡😓day offshore we’ve had this year, it was a more than comfortable and beautiful day on the water. The 💡light switch like current throughout the trip seemed to affect the bite just the same. On, then off, then on, then off again. Regardless, we stuffed a healthy box as always and had a wonderful time! Stevie boxed a nice 30′ ARS and hats off to TJ and Fransisco for pulling in your 32’s! We know you guys were whooped after those monsters came up! It was a pleasure to have you back and look forward to knocking those hogfish off your bucket list in the future! Fish on Friends!! #SlayAllDay#RottyBoyz

We welcomed the boys from the Fence Outlet back for yet another amazing trek. It was a textbook day of fishing out on the Gulf, with a nice steady bite throughout the entirety of the day. We had another standout whopper Gag along with some great ARS. Check out the videos below for some laughs along with this trip’s “What’s in the 📦 Box?” moment with our world class deckhand William Ash!
We we’re proud to share this special holiday with some awesome Dads! Morning bite was a bit slow until the tide started pulling and then these guys couldn’t be stopped! We hit some gnarly weather on the ride in. We were soaked, sore, and didn’t get back until dark, but it was worth it!

Redemption was the word of the day! This trip was originally booked back in August of last year and the cancelled and rescheduled over 5 times for bad weather. Good things come to those who wait!! These 5 guys did amazing and brought in some of the best fish we’ve had ALL year! #RottRott
Pictures say all that needs to be said!

What started as an AMAZING day on the Gulf, quickly was derailed by a lower unit blow out! We can only imagine how much even better that box would have been without having to come back way early for safety. These guys caught some more than impressive fish, and kept spirits high even with the engine snaffu! Not ashamed of this short trip box at all!! We were able to call in some favors and get a new unit early this morning with Central Marine Service & Boat Sales! Thanks Bobby Redmond! We delayed departure for today’s trek and reduced it to an 8hour. Pics to follow soon!

😱Holy B-Liners!! We headed out to a bit deeper water this time and got some Teenage Mutant Ninja Vermillions. Had some nice Red Snapper and two great Kings, before moving in closer to hit some Red Grouper. We got caught in a gnarly squall on the way in and we’re jostled around quite a bit. Glad we were able to make this run and these guys did a great job! This tropical weather system that’s brewin’ forced us to cancel today’s run and possibly tomorrow’s. Stay safe out there!
🎣DAY 4 of ARS season was the bomb diggity (don’t mind the gratuitous 90’s slang)! We noted the bite had waned over the first 3 days from our original area so we switched up our heading and moved to a different depth. Even tho it looked like the end of the world as we rode out, spirits were high! A 🏆quality🏆 American Red Snapper limit was reached in a half an hour from the first line in! After that, we proceeded to target each species specifically. Moving to a Gag location, then to a Mango, then to a Red Grouper. Within an already impressively stuffed box, we had 25″ and 26″ Mangos, beautiful Scamps, and some massive Vermilion to boot. Grade 🅰️ trip all the way! Way to go #RottyBoyz!

Think anyone would notice if we just rearranged the fish and put a different group of people next to them?
Only teasing… However, yesterday’s trek did damn near replicate Friday’s, down to the haul and weather conditions. Both were also excellent groups of regulars that we are always happy to host. Some very nice scamps shared some real estate in the box, alongside another limit in Red Snapper, and with some healthy Gag and Red Grouper as well.
Also…. group member Matt Clapp is artistically working his way through the Gulf Species one Gyotaku at time. He added a standout Scamp from this trip to his growing collection. Pics of both art pieces to follow soon.
All in all, Day 3 was a success and we’re back at it today! Stay tuned and we’ll move the fish around again and see if we can’t find another unsuspecting group of people to stand next to them!
