We were out yesterday at the Skyway and the water was chocolate milk. Maybe just from weather but still really bad. Lots of particles in the water so maybe sewage? Nevertheless, was too rough to fish for very long. Should have stayed home.

Yeah, I think I'd have to pass on fishing the white-cappin' poop water... o.O

Pondfisher you need to get back out doesn’t your grouper catch close Jan 1st . Maybe this wind will help clear things up soon .

Several grouper closures start Jan. 1
in Gulf and Atlantic waters 
 
Gag grouper will close to recreational harvest in Gulf state and federal waters Jan. 1, 2019. The same day, several species of grouper will also close to recreational and commercial harvest in Florida state waters of the Atlantic and all state waters off Monroe County. This Atlantic seasonal closure includes: gag, black, red, yellowmouth, and yellowfin grouper; scamp; red hind; rock hind; coney; and graysby. A similar closure will occur in Atlantic federal waters. 
 
For gag grouper, state waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Taylor and Jefferson counties will reopen to harvest April 1 through June 30 and Sept. 1 through Dec. 31. All other Gulf state waters (except waters off Monroe County, which follows the Atlantic state season) and all Gulf federal waters will reopen June 1 through Dec. 31.
 
In the Atlantic and state waters off Monroe County, several species of grouper, including gag, will reopen May 1.
 
Grouper information, including Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico grouper regulations, is available online. Go to MyFWC.com/Fishing and select “Saltwater Fishing Regulations” then “Groupers” under the “Reef Fish” tab.
