FULL MOON 30 FATHOM BREAK ANGRYFISH 2 DAY HUNT

  

Capts Rich & Jerry have come up with a special trip that will give a new meaning to an explosive independence day. This Year we are doing a trip to the part of the Gulf known as the 30 break. This is where the bottom depth changes abruptly at 180 feet and creates a hiding place for all of the big offshore Grouper and Snapper. It can also be home to some pelagic fish like Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna. The fish the we catch here are generally larger, angry and meaner than most other places that are fished in the Gulf because of its distance offshore and availability of larger baitfish .

 

This trip has the potential to become THE most talked about trip of the year because of the Full Moon, the 30 Fathom break and as of today, March 8th, we will be allowed to keep Gag Grouper and Red Snapper along with all the other Snapper and Grouper that we normally catch.
