Mini-Season, grouper surprise

While thousands of boats were heading southbound past my place in Key Largo, I was headed up to Miami to get my "12 per person per day" for mini season.
Went out on Wednesday with my old man and found plenty of lobster. Enough so that I got a hold of some budies that were out scuba diving already and donated my freediving assistance to help them get their limits. After our livewells and coolers were full, I decided to check a fishing spot and found some new inhabitants. It was covered up with black groupers and mangroves. I estimate about 12-15 blacks were living in this one spot, 3 or 4 of the remaining blacks are just over legal size. Also a 30# Jewfish has made this his new home. Shot one of the blacks (26"), and a couple mangroves. Gonna wait until those other blacks get a little bigger. Got stopped 2 times while out there. They went through everything, even checking to see if my fire extinguisher was full.
"My" catch for the day 1:
1 Black
2 Mangroves
12 Lobster

Went out again today with the old man for round two and found that they are still out there. Got a bunch early on, and chased down my buddies to see how they were doing. They needed help, so we went to a new spot and I helped them fill up their coolers. Headed in before lunch time and the thunderstorms.
"My" catch for day 2:
12 lobster

Re: Mini-Season, grouper surprise

Hi guys, my name is Juan Carballo im a local spearo from Miami. I have been spear fishing for 15 years, spear fished commercially for about 5 and also competed. I dive up to 80ft and enjoy blue water too. Safety is always a must!!

Im down for fishing pretty much any time, my schedule is flexible. I dont have a boat but im willing to drive North (Hollywood, Ft. Lauderdale) or as far South as the Keys, and am familiar with miami waters. The majority of my hardcore dive buddies are usually caught up with work, or family on the weekends, so its gotten hard to go out consistently

Im not attached to my computer nor do i have access to spear board on my phone but you can contact me at (305) 898-3484.
