I took some friends out fishing Wednesday and had an awesome day on the water. Perfect weather and this day the fish cooperated.

Tonight, no turkey leftovers, grouper on the grill. Nothing fancy, marinate in some zesty italian salad dressing and slap it on. 

Here is a pic on the hoof so to speak. That's my size 12 for some perspective. Did I mention it was a good day.

 I live in Hudson, about 30 - 35 miles north of Tampa Bay. Shallow water stuff, heavy spinning tackle throwing plugs and live/dead bait, never got over 10' deep.  It's a blast.

No, not at all. You have the same kind of water up there that we have, shallow for a long way. Plenty of grouper on the shallow rocks though, that's a good thing.

Any day fishing is a good day, if you catch fish it's a better day, if you catch fish like you guys did, it's a great day

Thanks, it was. Most of those came off of one spot in the last hour or so. First time we've gotten into them since the hard freeze last year. It's good to see them back.
