After striking out on grouper last week, we took advantage of good weather on Wednesday to run a little further and found what we were looking for. Not any bugs but we were after the big brown fish and got them. We messed around exploring alot of bottom and fished here and there but diving put most of the meat in the boat. It was such a beautiful day we didn’t know there was a monster storm on the coast until we heard ch16 blow up with pon pons for vessels taking on water due to weather. Fired up the satellite radar and tucked tail and ran for the jetties and barely made it between two nasty cells. Rob had a bit of a close call with a large hammerhead that followed him all of the way to the boat from the bottom, despite being jabbed a dozen times. That’s the 2nd hammerhead I’ve seen in the last 3 trips on reefs and that’s a bit unusual inshore of the ledge.
Glad we all made it home safely.
