Black Grouper Wreck fishing offshore Lauderdale Can't Post

Joel Esxer and his new bride fled the cold weather in Illinois and came down to Fort Lauderdale to spend their honeymoon. Our South Florida weather has been a bit chilly, reaching the low 40's, but once the sunshine comes out it is absolutely gorgeous (beats snow any day of the week). We headed out Port Everglades with trolling gear in the water and caught two king mackerels within minutes. Next thing on our list, a shipwreck. We packed up, ran north to a wreck, I popped the kites and Captain Paul dropped a fresh, bloody bottom bait. As soon as the bait hit bottom the rod bent over and we were hooked. Joel reeled in a 28 lb Black Grouper. Things were looking good for us down there so Captain Paul went for round two. He dropped another bait down and it was an instant bite. Joel's wife caught a 15 lb Amberjack.

Tight Lines!
