I cannot remember what date we ate these, but our good friends made a trip out to the Middle Grounds last week (or so) and picked up a few hundred pounds of fish for their coolers. The Middle grounds is in the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 80 miles from shore. It is a true test of endurance to run out there, fish, barely sleep, fish and then make the run back in.

I decided to look for a video on UTube to see if I could find something that brings this story to life. I do NOT know these folks, but you can get a 7 min experience of what it is like to be fishing the Middle Grounds like our friends did. It is the land of the giant fish.

Anyhow, we were extremely blessed to receive frozen packages of Red Grouper and Mangrove Snapper. Below is the Mangrove Snapper which were in the 5 -6 lb range. HUGE.


Jack wasted no time in cooking the Mangrove up for us (probably a Monday).

Jack opted out of the gas grill and went straight to charcoal for the sake of the unique flavoring it gives the fish. Oh, it was so worth the wait on the coals.


Is your mouth watering yet? Mine is.

Anyhow, you can find tons of Middle Ground fishing videos on the UTube. I see yellowfin, blackfin, Kingfish, Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack... everything!

Happy Fishing! And good eats!!
