Fourth time out in my boat and finally caught a few fish. Definitely didn't slay them, but we had a big variety and some newly caught species for us.

Me with a little Black Grouper (I think)

Neighbor Steve (and first mate) with a barely keeper Speckled Trout.


Unhooking my daughters Kingfish. Didn't see any regulations and was a very tasty fish.


Wife with a super cool and big Puffer fish.


My first Gulf Coast Flounder, barely made keeper size.


Daughters....Vermillion Snapper, I think? Pretty fish.

Never been offshore, interesting variety of fish.

Great going. Looks like you are starting to get a feel for it. That last one is a Sand Perch.
FWC had A decent ID page to help you out.

Cool, thanks! I got to thinking it wasn't a Vermillion Snapper, didn't even bother to look at anything else, wouldn't have suspected a Sand Perch. Still a new one for us. The sea is full of fish and I got lots to learn.

Academy carries a laminated fish of the gulf coast id chart. It folds up like a map and is very helpful. That way you can google size regs,if you care, so that you dont get stuck by surprise.

What you are calling a kingfish most people call a whiting.

This is a king fish (king mackerel)

Yeah, thanks. I figured that out since. Still learning. I think I saw it on paper as a Kingfish, but that’s what everybody calls a King Mackeral.

Here is a good source for ID. I didn't see the whiting there.

That is an awesome resource in that link you sent me, thanks Yellowhammer! This is why I first called it a Kingfish, doesn’t seem to be what it is called by anyone though.

Roy, Not to sure about your mate selection!? I believe I'd take the pretty lady over that furry faced Steve for a first mate...Just thinking out loud here. Getting stranded out on an Island? Know what I'd pick. Good catch, and good fishing
