We went out 7/16 offshore Jax. We had a beautiful day. The seas were flat, the sun was shining and the fish were out. Our 1st dive was out at BR, water temp was 79 at the surface 69 at the bottom, we were in 115 feet, vis was 60' plus I shot 3 nice mangos about 5-6 lb's each. Our second dive was in the same area similar stats but an empty stringer. We came in a little closer to shore for the 3rd dive in 90 feet had same water temps 79 surface and 69 bottom, vis was 30' put another nice mango on the stringer with a 20-25 lb grouper. Also picked up a nice dive knife compliments to Jeff who had just finished hunting this spot. The best part was that I was able to convince the grouper to carry the knife for me while I finished the dive.

No bugs on this day. We were on all metal and concrete. We will be making another trip in that direction soon and will try some ledges and give an update on bugs at that time. Have a great day.
