7/22 Diving and bottom fishing

Bugcatcher called me earlier this week and asked if I wanted to join as crew on another boat and so I jumped on the opportunity to relax on another boat. The weather was great despite the iffy forecast and we had good fishing action all day long. We managed a 4 man 1 woman limit of grouper and a bag of BSB and vermillion with nothing else mixed in. No trigger or porgy which was odd but it made sorting fish easy. A monster 10+lb lobster was left along because she had a tail full of eggs. Hopefully in 10 years there will be 10,000 more lobster on that ledge because of that :slight_smile:
Thanks captain Brian, Ed, Erik, and Liz! Great breakfast and lunch and the tuna snack was awesome.

Mess to clean up. Kids were helping a bit.

I had been told that these waters were to cold for lobster eggs to hatch. Instead the lobsters ride up here on the gulf stream and are strand. That comment has no science behind it. Any biologists care to chime in ?
