August Anclote

Been doing really well off anclote the past few weeks. Have been getting some real nice gags and a bonus lobster. Here are some pics and a video I put together.

Nice, Adam. I still haven't found spots like that off Anclote - what depth you in?

Re: August Anclote

We have a few ledges that hold them. Was a nice surprise.

Re: August Anclote

I need to get my flats boat sold so I can get my 26' repowered. My friend sold his boat and I haven't been back out off Tampa area since early in the year. Glad to see the area is rebounding from the red tide a few years back.

Lots of 12 inch hogfish and tons of small gags. Reefs look real healthy

Can you PM me details on the flats boat you want to sell?
