Capt Larry McGuire took Jim Mallow from Lakewood Ranch Fl offshore to catch his first true Black Grouper. Also Scott Taylor from Tampa Fl caught a nice firetruck red grouper. The happy anglers were using live pinfish in about 150 ft offshore of Anna Maria Island. The party also caught a lot more red grouper, large gag grouper, mangrove snapper, sharks and a limit catch of American red snappers.
