Captain Brian Morgan set out for a close off shore Father’s Day Snapper trip. After hitting the 10 mile mark, Captain Morgan anchored his clients up on some of his best Grunt spots. They brought in roughly 100 Grunts along with a few Red Grouper that decided to stop by. All in all, a fun morning out on the water! Happy Father’s Day to all you great Dads out there.

When Captain Brian Morgan’s Private charter set out of Pass A Grille channel on this morning it was calling for seas 2 to 3 ft. out of the South. Well, Mother Nature decided to throw a twist in with that forecast as it was actually 3 to 5’s with occasional 6 to 8’s. The fishermen ended up out 35 miles out after a 2 hour trip and decided to not go any further and try fishing in 125ft, of water. First line down pulls up a big Red Grouper weighing around 23 pounds and boat loads down with nothing but hogs from there on out! Mangrove Snapper, Lane Snapper, and shark also caught throughout the day. That’s how Captain Morgan Rolls!
It was a beautiful day out on the water! Calm and flat ride out. There was a great show in species today from the gulf. Every reef fish that could be caught was pulled in from today’s offshore adventure! We caught Red Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Lane Snapper, Red Grouper, and a Gag! Thank you Gulf of Mexico for providing such a bountiful trip! The party on this charter got their exercise in today and kept the mate busy.
Well, I must say that today’s trip was one to remember!! Cruising out to 115′ of water at 34kts, have clients in the sleepy bags at the stern. Water temp is around 72 degrees. First fish on the boat is about a 5lb. Lane snapper… very good eating fish! Straight to the box with five 15lb. Red Grouper. Second spot pull in another 9 bid Red Grouper and a really nice Mangrove snapper. Third spot to finish off the day at 1:00 pm we reach our 20 head limit on red grouper, with 4 fish over 20lbs.
