Fish Flash: Spring break is booming for Destin captains

Published: Friday, March 15, 2013 at 03:34 PM.

Texas and Georgia anglers on the Huntress with Capt. Mike Graef came in from an eight-hour trip with three big amberjack, a pile of triggerfish and one lone mingo.

Capt. Matt Woods on the Rookie and his crew from Wisconsin each reeled in an amberjack.

Wednesday was just as good on the docks with Capt. John Tenore on the Dawn Patrol taking a group from Texas out for a good catch. They reeled in sheepshead and flounder plus a huge bull redfish that was to big to keep.

"There's no such thing as too big in Texas," said the lady angler from Texas, noting she hated to throw the fish back.

The Texas crew also hooked up with about an 8-foot shark, which hit about a 15-pound snapper. Didn't board either species, but still fun to talk about later.

Anglers on the Cutting Edge with Capt. Steve Regan pulled in amberjack, triggerfish and mingo, while Capt. John Geisbrecht on the Starfire landed mingo, white snapper, triggerfish and amberine.

Capt. Mike Graef on the Huntress and his anglers filled the top rack with amberjack and the bottom with triggerfish.
