Went on a party boat while in florida last week.Went aboard the the super queen a 90' cat set up like a party boat. Nice day water was in the upper 50's and the air was high 70's. Caught grey snapper,blackfish and dogfish. Lots of other small bycatch as well but i had no idea what they were. Fish were in the 2-4lb range and i let mine go. Nice day the gulf is virtually waveless. If anyone heads out there i would definetly recommend looking into a sixpack charter rather than the party boats. The six packs go out for bigger game fish and the party boats bottom fish. I would have done it myself but the wife booked the trip for me as a surprise b-day gift. Great to get out and the crew was good.

Black Fish in tampa i dont think so...... A sheepshead(which sorta looks like a blackfish) is proably what you meant. Glad to hear you had a good time in sunny warm flordia. Is winter almost over? Tight Lines Chris

Porgies are caught all over, the porgies that you saw were a different species than what we catch though.

Actually they're Porgy. More than likely Knobbed Porgy which are caught from N.C. to s fla. and the entire Gulf of Mexico. What we catch up here are really called Scup. (L.I.Sound) Which we all call POOOOOGIES! <*/{><

Listen up guys. I went fishing,caught some weird fish i never caught before and then let them go. When I asked what kind of fish they were thats what the mate told me. Are they the same blackfish we have here? NO! But thats what he said they were and thats what I am telling you guys. So lets get this strait; I am sharing my experiences with you guys for the good sportsmanship of it, not to get my stones broken. I dont really care what kind of fish it was as long as they're biting and guys are catching.

Right on, Blasko! It is all about the fishing no matter what the species. Glad you had a great time, I am going to St. Augustine tomorrow and packing my gear. I will try my luck under this bridge and hope to catch whatever, hopefully some redfish and snook.

I WENT OUT ON A PARTY BOAT OUT OF MORICHES AND CAUGHT OVER SEVENTY SEA ROBINS AND I HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE! THEN JUST FOR FUN I BOOKED AN OFFSHORE SHARK TRIP TO SPECIFICALLY TARGET BLUE SHARKS IN THE 100LB RANGE. BOY WAS THAT GREAT! MAYBE NEXT TIME I CAN ARRANGE A CHARTER FOR SOME BERGALLS!

"The Florida tripletail, often called sunfish, blackfish and/or buoy fish, makes for one of the most fun-to-catch and delicious-to-eat sportsfish found in the Gulf of Mexico. Sweet to the taste, the meat of the tripletail has flavor similar to a freshwater bream." Hey lighttackleman---just tryin to teach ya sumthin---not attackin or nuthin like that. Glad you had some fun, Blasko.

Thanks for the support guys. Hammer-ed;check out www.SuperQueenfleet.com They may have links for 6packs out of tampa. I suggest those over the party boats based on what they were catching this time of year. Good luck.
