Thanks for the report demere. See anything big like 20# grouper? I bet they are still pretty fast with the water at 82. Was the viz good enough to shoot? We are talking about hitting it next Sat. Was thinking about SS also. I hear you can find bugs at SS in the right place but have yet to target bugs at that spot.

saw some bugs @ ss- deep in the caves. The larger greys were real skittish, only picked up one. plenty of big aj's around ( if your interested) same for big cudas etc. Things will only get better till it gets too cold(for me) to dive. we need a good 3-5% drop in the water temp to get thing moving. still fun to be back in the water.

Native Diver is run by APD.They went out Sun to TW area with small charter.Some fish and bugs.I lurk on VHF to commercial boats chatter to get heads up and 21 bottom had lotsa noise as did Elton bottom,many big genuines.My boat is small,but we team up with my buddies smaller boat to do round trips up to 100 miles or so.
