Wahoo Caught With Captain Larry Mcguire

Offshore action has been absolutely awesome this week—actually the last six weeks have been phenomenal with American red snapper season now open. On Show Me The Fish Charters running out in my custom 31 ft Morgan Sportfish my anglers are catching lots of red, mangrove, and yellowtail snapper  along with Firetruck red grouper up to 25 lbs, mahi mahi, porgys, big sharks, barracudas, catch and release gag grouper and amberjacks.

Working depths from 125 ft to 160 ft offshore of Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key with live and cut bait all producing good action. On one trip the catch of the day went to 12 yr old Rocky Finerty from Wilmington Delaware catching his limit of red snappers, a pair of 7 lb mangrove snappers, grouper and amberjack. Rocky Carry's his name very well he was my go to man out fishing all of the experienced adults on this trip. I specialize in helping the inexperienced so the kids and the ladies out fish the guys that can fish—It always happens, I have even experienced this personally.

Catch of the week goes to Josh Phillips from Lakeland Fl with a great Wahoo he caught while using a sardine in about 125 ft offshore of Anna Maria Island. We planned on heading offshore but we stopped in on a area where we had seen a school Mahi Mahi to give it a try, but to our surprise we found a new area of large red snappers and huge red grouper on the bottom.

We were catching lots of them when the Wahoo came to the back of the boat. First Mate Anthony kept him happy feeding him bits of bait until we I got a flatline ready and all the grouper rods out of the way. Then I just pitched a sardine to the hoo and asked who wants some of this? Josh jumped on it and the fight was on— an hour later a wahoo in the boat.

Josh is a deputy with the Osceola Sheriffs office and was on a special trip with his dad and three brothers. I love to support law enforcement and show them the fish. Life is good fishing is great come on out and get ya some. Fish and be happy!
