Bob Wilson With Red Grouper

Fishing is RED HOT with American red snapper and red grouper On Show Me The Fish Charters operating out of the Bradenton Beach Marina. My parties are seeing lots of red with limit catches of beautiful red snapper and firetruck red grouper. We have been going deep running my custom 31 ft Morgan Sportfish starting out in about 120 ft and ending up in 150 ft for the best bite.

Our guests are also catching catch and release gag grouper, amberjacks and Goliath grouper. Along with cobia, Kingfish, mangrove and yellowtail snappers, porgy's, big sharks, barracudas and lots of school dolphin. On another boat my close friend caught a 35 lb blackfin tuna along with most of these other species.

Last week we had a big smoker kingfish on for a long time until we fought him to the boat. Only to be attacked by a big bull shark. A variety of live bait is working along with cut bait, sardines, squid , etc. Always keep lots of rods rigged up with artificials for when the mahi mahi show up for pure mayhem. When they stop hitting one bait or lure always change to another to keep the party going. Keeping one in the water always keeps the school at the boat. Lately they love us so much they hang there with us until everyone is tired.

Now that’s a beautiful thing. Now is the time to come on out and get ya some! Fish and be Happy.

look at the grouper Bob Wilson from Ft Myers caught using a sardine in 145 ft offshore of Anna Maria Island!
