Bottom Fishing

Rating - Excellent   

Friday, Aug 16 2019
bottom fishing within 30 miles has produced some big black sea bass, though you have to wade through plenty of smaller fish to find them. Gag grouper can be found in this range as well. Beyond 30 miles, you can take advantage of an onfire scamp and red grouper bite, and don't be surprised to pull up plenty of 3 lb. beeliners as well.
