The Rudee Angler took another 17-hour trip offshore on August 28th and had an incredible catch. There were Seabass up to 5lbs and a great catch of a Barrel Fish weighing up to 25lbs. Two of the anglers also returned with some huge Snowy Groupers weighing in at 47 and 58lbs. The weather was great and the crew and anglers had a great day!

Within the last 10 days the Rudee Angler took two 17-hour trips and a 24-hour trip to the deep. The weather was beautiful on all trips aside from the 17-hour on the 24th where the crew and anglers had some rainstorms but evaded the major storms off the coast. Regardless of the weather, all trips came back with some impressive catches.
Fishing up to 300 feet there were Blue Line Tile Fish caught that weighed up to 19lbs and Sea Bass weighing up to 4.5lbs. After catching their limits at 300 feet, the Angler proceeded to the deep and the fishermen (and women!) dropped their lines down into 500-850 feet waters. Out in the deep there was an abundance of Rose Fish caught, some Barrel Fish, and a few Wreck Fish. There was also some Yellow Fin Bass and a rare Alfonsino Fish (be sure to check it out in the pictures!).
